Building Porn – Parliament for Inspiration


Every time I travel I get so inspired to paint - I paint almost everyday, I try to come up with new ideas.

I recently visited Budapest and Vienna. What a beautiful city 
"Budapest"and lots to see and explore. We stayed in the Jewish 
District at theContinental Hotel, Dohany u. 42 - 44, Budapest 1074, 
Hungary which is on the Pest side of the city, a very central 
I love this area, it was easy to walk around, lots of bars and 
The street cars were easy to ride and also
the underground.
The buildings and architecture were amazing! Food and drinks were 
cheap. I spent Christmas of 2017 and New Years of 2018, one of the 
best trips I have taken. 

The currency was the Forint.  I recommend changing currency from US 
dollars to the Forint not the Euro. 

Austin Texas/ Travel

Rainy Street above.


Austin’s skyline is rising rapidly, and the city is growing very quickly.  I have to say one of the most outstanding things about this city is the people – OMG everyone was so kind, friendly and helpful. I would definitely go back.  I visited in late July, the temperature was hovering around  105F.  That’s hot, but it is a dry heat.  The best way to get around the town is by LIME Scooters, it was so much fun riding an electric scooter, quick, easy and breezy.


I had some homemade on the spot donuts “Little Lucys” on Rainy Street so good and hot.  See all the flavors and options above.  Cute little camper painted pinks with all the equipment to make donuts. This street was lined on both sides with old homes converted into Restaurants, they were so cute and so many dining options.  IMG_0046One evening I had tacos at Guëro’s across the Congress Bridge, take a scooter it makes the trip fun.

Next night I had Thai food at Mai Thai, really good Thai food and the price was

Congress bridge “bat bridge” a must see it crosses over the Colorado River.  Over 1.5 million bats fly out each night to get their dinner of bugs.  It is quite an amazing sight.

Le Crepe – delicious crepes with fresh fruit and whipped cream, I recommend these crepes.  Not far from the J.W. Marriott. Excellent cappuccino.
