Hi Everybody! Another week has been and gone in the wink of an eye, and it's time for Paint Party Friday again, hosted by Eva & Kristin. I want to share a painting I made of my dog *Struppi*, many, many years ago, in 1979. I dreamt of her last night, and in my dream she was looking at me just like she is doing in the picture. She was the best dog we ever had. The picture hung for years at a friend's house, who gave it back to me a year or so ago. The gold round the edges was not from me, someone must have tried to dress it up, I had a dark brown, shadowy edge which I liked better. But I was pleased to get the painting back!
And I would like to share my journal pages which I made yesterday. The pages have been painted with water colours, then stamped using TH *barn door*. I added some Halloween die-cuts and some verses about autumn. I can't seem to get away from this colour scheme at the moment; the autumn colours just make me feel good.
And now for the GOOD, the BAD and the UGLY.
The Good - I got a wonderful parcel from Jan yesterday, full of goodies. I was really overwhelmed at her generosity, and will be having fun playing with all my stamps and embellies and other lovely things in the coming time!
Many, many thanks Jan, for a thoughtful and more than generous gift!
The Bad - is dropping some red paint onto the kitchen floor, treading in it with bare feet, and spreading it through the whole apartment. By the time I noticed it it had dried, and I had to crawl round on my knees to scrape it off the floor.
The Ugly - I got post from the town authorities again today. My car had exceeded the speed-limit while exiting the Rhine Tunnel again, and I have to pay 15€. They sent a photo as proof. Now I am wondering - who is this fat and ugly old woman who keeps driving my car too fast?!
Surely this can't be me?
Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for visiting!
