Hope you are enjoying you weekend.
We had a cold and damp day here. The birds were all extra hungry, and so was I!
For Art Journal Journey, 'Inspired by the Masters' I have another project inspired by Rosina Wachtmeister. Her sunny world of happy cats has me in its grip! Is this what people call a catastrophe?
The background (A3) was gessoed and then painted with sky blue. I used the background stamp with white gesso to make the swirls in the sky. When it was dry I added more colour with Pan pastels, I think I am getting addicted to them, too! The music panel has been made with a paper napkin, fixed with mod-podge, and framed with washi tape. The quote is from Albert Schweitzer. The cat was cut with a large stencil that I made, painted with gesso, and then coloured with Pan-pastels, felt-pens and gel-pens. I added some patterning and more washi tape. I am also linking to Moo Mania and more, polka dots.
This morning there were 2 herons at the Rhine, as well as a lot of gulls.
I love the way they stand on the stones and wooden posts
And then the heron poked its beak into the water as quick as a flash and came out with a fish. The fish is a bit blurred, it would not keep still for my photo!
My favourite corner by the benches
A thrush was sitting on the hedge in the Church close
Mrs Blackbird was looking for food on my balcony
And the hawk was back again.
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by
