We had another frosty night here, followed by a cold and sunny day,
which I enjoyed, even if I was very busy. But between walks and English coaching I found time for some painting and crafting,
so that was good.
For Art Journal Journey, I was once again inspired by Vincent Van Gogh to make a page in my giant journal. I was fascinated by his painting of clogs, which he evidently made when he was bored, and could not leave the house because of bad weather.
I don't have any clogs, so decided to use my fave boots:
The photo was digitally altered and re-coloured, fussy cut, and then placed onto a background which was first painted with water-colours, and then patterned with pastel chalks. I think some of you will remember that song sung by Nancy Sinatra
I had fun making this page!
I was awake early again and was able to watch the day dawning, and emerging from the mist and frost:
I love walking through the frosty leaves:
Another altered sign along the Rhine towpath:
The sky was blue:
The shadows of the trees on the house looked like they had been painted:
And the view of the opposite side of the road was very clear in the book / toy-shop window:
And I had to watch the sun setting over the Rhine again:
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
