Weekend Post

Hi Everybody!

Just a short post today, I am still reeling from what happened in Uvalde and the big meeting of the gun lobby. Sometimes it's almost too much to take in! 

Today I have another spotty-dotty piece with a rather colourful lady who looks sad. Not my fave piece, but here it is, an A3 piece painted with acrylics:





The photos were taken from my balcony over the past couple of weeks, I never got round to uploading them to my computer. Okay, I just forgot them!











Pigeons on the tree top:







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

Friday Post

Hi Everbody!

As I sit and type this they are showing the news of the shooting in Uvalde, so terrible. Why are people allowed to have so many weapons ? How can anyone just shoot a class of children and their teachers? Why didn't the police go in earlier? So many questions, so few answers. Such a tragedy. My heart goes out to the families of all those who died.

Today I have a hybrid piece for Matilde's  birds challenge at AJJ, and for Nicole's Friday Face Off:



We saw this baby sparrow yesterday, and thought it had lost it's parents. Then we heard a bird calling and baby was reunited with his parents again. Not a good photo, I didn't want to scare it by going nearer:



Some photos from Nord Park:













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

Midweek Post

Hi Everybody!

Hope your week is going well. My computer and mouse are having hissy fits all day, everything is taking twice as long as it should! I hope I manage to get this post done and dusted. And my apartment needs dusting, too, got a visitor coming tomorrow!

This is a hybrid page made with a face I painted, a rusty photo taken by me, and some digital flowers and birds. Some people are rather disparaging of hybrid or digital art, but it is a lot of work and often takes as much time to make as a hands-on page. I love making things like this as it opens up many new possibilities to be creative. I am linking to Matilde's birds chllenge at AJJ, and to Rain's Tad, blooming flowers:



Today I have some pre-covid pictures to share, when wse visited the neighbouring town of Neuss, a town foundcd by the Romans way back when. We visited a flea market and walked through the crowded town, it feels so strange now to see people close together and not wearing masks:





If you look hard you can see me in this pic:









More flowers for Rain:










The figures on this building move and 'march' about every so many minutes:




And more blooming flowers for Rain's TAD:








Some funnies / thinkies:




I'm glad I managed to finish the post without further problems!

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