Flip-flop

Hi Everybody!

It's been another hot and muggy day here.
It was too hot to cook so I've been eating fruit and salad, all cold and juicy!

For Art Journal Journey, in my garden there is - Yvonne's lovely and very popular theme,  I am showing a spread from my 'old' new journal. I used a picture I cut out of the newspaper some time back, coloured the page with Gelatos to match and added the words.




This was the sky yesterday evening, very impressive!


I visited the horses again on my walk:





I always enjoy the flowers growing along the Rhine:






And I am wondering how the owner of this shoe, which was on a wall by the Basilica, got home:


Have a great day you all, take care, and stay safe - 
this world keeps getting scarier and scarier!
Thanks a lot for coming by!

This and that on Saturday

Hi Everybody!

Today we had less sun, and although it was a little less hot outside, it will take a few days for my overheated apartment to cool down. At least it was pleasanter to walk about!

For Art Journal Journey, in my garden there is, I have filled my head with flowers and birds to cool off a bit:




We had a sunny start to the day again:



Lots of flowers:






The bees are busy:


 The apples in the field behind the house are growing:


Not many people were at the market on Wednesday:



And the horses were busy grazing, as always:




Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

Trying to stay cool.....

Hi Everybody!

After weeks of rain we are now experiencing a heat wave, so I'm doing my
best to find shady places to cool off. It's 34° outside, and 32° inside,
so it's not so easy!

My journal page for Art Journal Journey, in my garden there is, was made with one of my 10 minute paintings. The quote is from Luke's Gospel.
I am also linking to Paint Party Friday.





Inspired by:




And I have been doodling every evening, my journal is nearly full. Here is a double page. The background was brayered with some left over paint :



I wanted her to look like a Chinese 'lucky cat':



The day started off with a lovely sunrise:

 


Shady places where I would like to be:



Blue water and skies:



And a butterfly who would not oblige me by opening both wings:(





Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
