Thursday / Friday

Hi Everybody!

Hope you are all doing well. Here it is still very hot, inside and out and I am trying to keep out of the sun's hot rays. And I have bronchitis, which isn't nice either, so I'm hoping it will go away soon.

Today I am sharing a piece meant for  Paint Party Friday. I made another woven piece out of strips of chopped up paintings. This is 18° x 18". Sorry about the bad writing, my hands are very shaky these days:

And I have a hybrid piece for Mia's butterfly challenge at AJJ, one again with Frida Kahlo:

And some pictures from here:

The evening birds:

The sower is not wearing a mask!

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

Midweek Post

Hi Everybody!

Greetings from a very hot and humid Düsseldorf! Either we get frozen or we get baked, the weather is crazy!

For Wendy's tag on tag challenge at Tag Tuesday I have another entry:

On Sunday 2 friends collected me and then we drove through Düsseldorf to the south of town. After parking the car, we walked through the Urdenbacher Kämpe - a nature protection area - and enjoyed the beautiful fields, meadows, animals and birds we saw on our way. 

Then we arrived at the Rhine and boarded the ferry to take us across to Zons, a small town from the middle ages:

The shield shows St Martin cutting his cloak in half for  a poor beggar:

On the other side we walked through the fields till we got to Zons:

This is a beautiful model of the town:

The gateway leads into the walled town, and inside the town we had to be masked:

My companions greeting the bishop:

The photos of our ice  creams and drinks are being saved for next Tuesday!
Time went by quickly, and it was time to cross the river again and then walk back to the car:

There's a wonderful video of Zons which you can see here.
It's just under 15 minutes and well worth watching.

And we walked about 10 kilometres all together, so that was good!
I will show more photos in my next post!

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