Today it was hot and humid, so I went for my walk a bit earlier than usual before it heated up even more. I chose the path through the woods, and went to Schloss Kalkum to visit the ducks - and they were all busy sleeping, not even interested in being fed ! This afternoon the skies darkened and we had thunder, lightning, heavy rain falls and hailstones again, and it looks like tomorrow will be similar. I don't mind being out when it's raining, but not when there's thunder and lightning, so the worse case scenario for tomorrow will be a day spent crafting, cooking and reading!
Today I am sharing another Frida Kahlo journal page. I used a photo digitally changed to a pencil drawing, which I then superimposed onto another page of her diary. I find this page very moving, where she is missing her Diego so much. I then used water-colour pencils, oil pastels and a water brush to colour the face. This time I let Frida speak, and didn't add any other journaling.
The apples in the park are getting bigger day by day, I sometimes wish my arms were longer!
I love the seed heads of the flowers:
Just one left!
The path through the woods:
The church spire at Kalkum
The beautiful sky over the Rhine:
This picture reminded me of Red Riding Hood and the wolf - the little boy was hanging on to the dog, an Irish wolf hound, who was leading him gently along the path over the old fortifications - a boy's best friend.
Have a great Sunday, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
