Hope your day was good! The river is still rising here, so I am hoping it will soon be less. The ducks and geese are loving the flooded meadows by the Rhine, so t least they are enjoying it!
For Art Journal Journey I was once again inspired by Modigliani. I prefer his earlier works to his swan-necked ladies, although this lady does have a rather long neck. She is called Maude Abrantes. I started out with a background which was gessoed, and onto which I had stamped some autumn leaves. I added more colour with water colours and pastels. I drew Maude onto white paper, and painted her with water colours and pastel chalks, and glued her to the background after cutting her out. She looks to me neither happy nor healthy. I found a fitting quote from Modigliani again.
Moo Mania and more's new challenge is 'Anything goes', and I used a stamp from Crafty Individuals to make some triple stamping. Well, if you count the fussy-cut thistle on top, it was quadruple stamping! You can link up all sorts of projects, not just Moos, so hop over and join us there. Remember - anything goes!
We had a nice sunrise this morning, and the first half of the day was cloudy but dry.
Dark clouds were blown along by a fresh wind.
The Rhine has got wider and made new lakes:
On my evening walk I took a picture of our beautiful flower shop.
My way home lead me through 'Narnia', aka the path through the park which was once the moat.
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks for coming by!
