Creative outdoors

You'll be shocked to see what my cousin Lesley did to his balcony ... Is this creative or what? An aspiring commercial pilot by profession... Who would say, he is not an artist or a designer??
This is the balcony of his apartment here in Sharjah... The Buddha is hand painted by Lee!! *surprised* .... I was too!! *smiles*
Then he went ahead and painted the other walls of his 13th floor balcony too... Here is a brick effect...
some more passionate bricks... and patterns...
I'm linking in to these blog parties!!
The yellow thing in the bottom image, he picked from the bin... It was brown in colour.. He doesn't even know what its really meant to be... But to him.. his creepers will eventually grow on it... He painted it yellow... and it looks perfect against the dark brown wall...
I'm truly super impressed... and I hope you are too...
Did you like his work of art?? Awesome!! Isn't it??
'In the spotlight' for the month of June is Buddha Scapes ... hope you are linking in!!
