Friday here was wet and cold all day. On my walks I only met dogs, horses and some big umbrellas with legs under them. But ALL of the benches along the Rhine were free today, I could have sat anywhere I wanted....
I am sure it will not come as surprise when I say that I have another Frida journal page to share today. Yes, I have Frida fever, and it probably won't stop till the end of the month - and I am enjoying it!
This time I have tried to combine the challenges at Moo Mania and More, Hot Summer, and AJJ, Frida. So I made my Frida page in hot and summery colours. I based my drawing on a Frida picture I got on a bookmark, drew it in A4 size, and scanned it into my computer. I digitally changed the colour to red, and printed it out onto paper that I had painted and spritzed with red and yellow water-colours. I added more colour using gel pens in red, neon-yellow, green, brown and white. The words I have chosen are from a page in her 'painted diary' and mean love, heat and pain. It was fun using colours I don't usually even think of!

Everything was wet today, but the rain does make the grass really lush....
There were hundreds of wild geese at the Rhine, making a big noise, the usual ducks, and of course, the resident swan. It really was weather for the ducks!
This afternoon I visited the horses here round the corner. They are definitely susceptible to bribery, and love apples and carrots.
And one lesson we can learn from the horses, birds and other animals, is to take things as they are, to keep calm, and just carry on....
Have a great weekend, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
