The weekend is here, enjoy it!
Last week I watched a programme on TV about antique mosaics found under the sea, and one series showed fish and waves. This inspired me to make my fish using gilding flakes and paper scraps to make the mosaic waves. I drew the fish first, filled it in with the flakes (how to get stuck up without really trying....) and drew the outline with a black pentel pen. Then I added the waves. The background was painted with greens and blues over a brush-wipe page. I am linking to Art Journal Journey, the sea. The quote is from Albert Einstein:
'Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid'
The weather was quite pleasant today, so I enjoyed my walk, first along the stream:
I passed the meadow where the horses were grazing:
I enjoyed the sight and smell of the blossoms:
I watched the ships on the Rhine:
The water is still very high:
My way home led me through the little park, where I enjoyed the wild flowers, which have shot up with all the sun and rain:
Have a great weekend you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
