I hope all friends in the USA are enjoying Thanksgiving, and wish you all a wonderful weekend.
We had a cold, wet and windy here. The sun did try to look in on us a few times, but not with much success. I fed the birds on my balcony this morning, they were once again waiting for me to put their food out, and then I took some stale bread to feed the seagulls. They are very good at snapping the bits in the air before they fall down, it was fun watching them.
For Art Journal Journey I was inspired by 2 artists this time, Toulouse Lautrec, whose 150th birthday was celebrated this week, and Andy Warhol. I took Lautrec's black cat, and made a stencil from it, and then inked it with black acrylic paint over the painted rectangles. The 4 panels fit onto a page in my giant journal. I painted the 'halo' with gold gel-pen, and outlined the cats with the same.
I used my Stencilry stencil to make this one, and then Warholed it at Tuxpi.
This morning it didn't look too bad, but after that it got cloudier and cloudier.
I found this stone hard puff-ball mushroom by the wayside. It looks like lots of insects have burrowed a way into it and are living there. I didn't look closer to see if any of them were still in there!
The magpie did not want to stand still to have his photo taken. Today the magpies, a jay and the woodpecker enjoyed themselves, as well as the little tits.
I love the name of this boat!
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
