The weekend has flown by here.
After my busy day yesterday I slept well and was able to go for a long walk this morning. It's getting colder again, but it did stay dry, and the water in the Rhine is slowly going down again.
For Art Journal Journey I made another Painting inspired by Rosina Wachtmeister. I couldn't resist having another play with those cats. The background was a brush-wipe page, which was stamped and then spritzed with some specks of white and gold and sprinkled with fairy dust. I added more colour with pan pastels. The cats were drawn with my stencils onto gessoed paper and coloured with felt pens and pan pastels. The flowers and sun were collaged. I have now packed the cat stencils into my stencil drawer, but I am sure they will be taken out again at a later date!
The woodpecker visited again this morning, hungry as always.
I met these woolly jumpers on my walk today:
It was very cold and windy at the lake, so I din't stop there long.
At Schloss Kalkum I enjoyed the winter flowering tree:
This bird was busy looking for worms:
The sky was very dramatic, with lots of black clouds. The sun kept struggling to make an appearance:
I love this view from the tow-path, with the old canon on the wall, the little houses behind the wall, and the basilica in the background.
The castle ruins made a strong silhouette:
The evening sky was beautiful with delicate ice-cream colours.
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
