Faces and vintage vehicles.

Hi Everybody!

Hope your day is going well.

This is a TV doodle made a couple of weeks back, made for 'Time' at
Art Journal Journey.
I am also linking to Black and white at Moo Mania and More.
It looks like a frightening face, too, but I am NOT adding it to my 49 faces!

This face is also meant for 49 faces and Kim Dellow's Friday show your face.
This was one where a lot went wrong - the colours ran, because I forgot to put the rubber stopper back into my water brush, and as I also used a non-permanent black pen, it made a mess.  So the poor girl got a frustration-scribble-hairdo and that was that!

I like the colour swapped digital version better

And now, what do you think is?

Can you see it better?

'Elvis Presley's Cadillac Fleetwood is  resting here, but not in peace '

This was part of an art experiment started many years back, watching things revert to nature

The Cadillac is on the car-park of the 'Burghof'  (Castle Court) cafe, restaurant and Beer garden, next to the castle ruins by the Rhine. The other cars are rusting happily in the beer garden:

And this carriage (perhaps from Count Dracula?) is in the hallway

I discovered this car outside on the street, looks like someone's  been to a wedding. I love the reflections of the cobble stones:

Hope you enjoyed our trip to the beer garden!
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by


  1. I did enjoy this trip thanks. That is a fabulous 'wow' doodle. And I love the eyes on your other face.

  2. Lovely faces, and the doodles one is great, too, and thanks for the vintage trip! Have a lovely day, hugs, Sarah

  3. Eine bildschönes gesicht hast du gemalt,du wirst immer besser.
    das gedoodle gefällt mir auch sehr.
    heute habe ich burzeltag und mach mir einen schönen tag.
    schönen sonntag dir.

    hugs jenny

  4. Wow your zentangling is amazing and the 3-D effect on it is just wonderful. Love your bad hair day lady to. Great vintage vehicles.
    Hugs Desíre {Doing Life}

  5. I was really impressed with your zentangled beauty. I thought it looked like a face. But I was even more impressed with the bad hair day, because I would NEVER have thought of that for my TIME altered book. You did a great job covering up your goof. And the digital version actually glows!

    Wow. Those vehicles are amazing. I couldn't believe the one originally owned by Elvis Presley. That shows how forceful nature can be. Of course, the final shot was out of this world. I always love reflections and this was something I might have taken, too, had I noticed it. It is amazing.

    1. I am always looking out for reflections and shadows!

  6. Wonderful black and white artwork. It would make a wonderful print for note lets etc. What a beautiful face and the tangled hair with the different colours looks amazing..

    Such wonders you always find on your walks Valerie. The ones today are terrific and the reflected cobbles are the star of the show for me as well.

    Have a great day

    Love Chrissie xx

  7. What a wonderful black and white piece Valerie, really striking, the more you look the more you see in there. Your bad hair day lady is really fun - I'd be happy to look like this on a good day lol. Love your photography too, what an interesting place to visit. Have a fun weekend xx

  8. Ein wunderbares Doodle-Werk in Schwarz-Weiß zeigst du heute! Mir gefällt ganz besonders dein Bild mit dem feinem Gesicht ... so zarte Gesichtszüge und dazu die willden Haare ... einfach klasse!
    Einen schönen Sonntag für dich!
    Liebe Grüße, Annette

  9. Ha, ha, bad hair day, we've all had plenty of those! Your doodle is fabulous and was that really Elvis' car, I can't believe no-one has tried to sell it. Have a lovely Sunday, sun shining here. :) xx

    1. I would put it differently, occasionally I have a good hair day, and don't look like Mrs Tiggy-Winkle!

  10. A fabulous doodled page and I love your bad hair lady - fabulous photos too.
    xxx Hazel.

  11. Your doodles are awesome and the scribble girl is beautiful, in both forms. The rusting cars are fascinating and I really enjoyed seeing the carriage. Wishing you a fine Sunday :D

  12. Great doodled page, and another beautiful face, your 'bad hair day' is very fun!
    Interesting art experiment what they did with that car, the force of nature is evident.
    Hugs, Mar

  13. I like the portrait, but I absolutely love the intricate patterns and shapes that evolved from your intricate doodle design. Castle Court looks like a fascinating place to visit. Blessings!

  14. Ein tolles Portrait - ich hab leider fast jeden Tag Bad Hair Day ---
    eine herrliche Doodelei und Deine Biergartenfotos sind richtig klasse!
    Oh yes I enjoyed it - indeed! Der arme Presley Cadillac.. hätte schon etwas mehr Aufmerksamkeit verdient!
    Happy Sunday Sweetie!

  15. My that is a scary face! Nut a great doodle! There must be car collectors who gringe at those cars left to rust, but I wonder how long it is going to take for them to disappear? The Fleetwood might not be that long, looks like those plants are eating it...though of course they aren't....but great reflection photo- I agree. Enjoy what's left of your weekend!

  16. The eye of time realy catches you when seeing this fantastic page. Great doodles,love it.
    More wonderful photos.

  17. Great doodle, I almost never do it, but love those who can and do. Old cars are big around here, working ones, we have several shows in summer, some with will over 200 vehicles from 1890's onward. Quite spectacular. xox

  18. Really stellar work indeed, and lovely photos. Greetings!

  19. First of all - that last "wedding" photo needs to win an award so where - that is soooo INCREDIBLE Valerie. You really captured a unique scene.

    I always give your faces a story in my mind! This one is a "lady of the evening" who had a bad night when a gentleman took out his problems on her - given her a bruised lip and leaving her hair in tangles. She is still beautiful though with her deep green eyes and button nose - the most requested lady of the house. :)

    The black and white is sooooo spectacular. Did that take hours? I have never done anything like that and don't think I would have the patience either!!! j.

    1. I love your comments, they always make me smile, great story with the lady of the evening!

  20. Oooh, the man in black and white makes me wonder what caused all the rage. The woman is so expressive and beautiful with her tangled hair.

    Echoing that the wedding car is a wonderful photo, love the rusting cars too, somehow I hope that someone can save them and give new life to them.

    Love and hugs

  21. Love the doodle !!! I can get lost doing them for hours sometimes ♥ The face is great and my hair pretty much looks like that all of the time in the summer... I gave up fighting it years ago LOL! The beer garden is definitely different. I spotted the car right away when I opened the post before even reading it.

  22. Love your doodles and your jazzy lady!!!
    Love the things reverting to nature, mysterious!

  23. Thanks for a good tour and I love her curly messy hair. I love curls, and of course because of that I was born with totally straight hair. HaHA. I would call it a good hair day if mine looked like that.

    Your TV doodle is great!

  24. Really Fun black and white doodles...I do like black and white for the drama and interest it brings.
    Your girl is lovely and her hair looks quite nice to me.
    I gave up long ago having curls in my straight as a board hair.
    People pay a lot of money for curls like that *ggg*
    Thank you for the fun Sunday outing :-) I so enjoy rusty things!

  25. Sorry I haven't visited lately, I shall try and catch up over the next few days and see what I have been missing. There's always so many different and lovely things to see in your post, and I love looking at your photos.
    The lady with the scribbled hair is fabulous! and I love the car with the reflection of the cobblestones - that's just the sort of thing I would have photographed.... Gill x

  26. Poor girl, I think she is fine and I like her hairdo, nice and curly and pretty colours.
    I like your b&w drawing very much, fascinating patterns intermingling and it looks as if it could have been quite difficult to get it all together.

  27. Yes, I enjoyed the visit to the beer garden. Love your doodle and the face is awesome. Yes, it's never a good time for a bad hair day but they seem to happen anyway!!
    Have a great day!

  28. Your zentangle doodle is so detailed and fantastic. The eyes you create for your faces are so reflective and draw you in. AND, the trip to the beer garden area to view the old and forgotten cars was a delight. Had no idea Elvis's Cadillac was left there; it certainly has been overtaken by the foliage. Thanks for this adventure.


  29. You see so many interesting things and how lovely that you capture so much of it on camera to share with your followers.

    Your face is beautiful and really cool in the digital form.

    I love, love, LOVE your doodle! Super cool; full of interest and motion.


  30. WOW Valerie, love your b/white doodle and the lady with the messy hair has beautiful eyes. Really enjoyed your trip to the beer garden. Thanks for sharing.
    Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
    Avril xx

  31. What fabulous old cars - have you posted some of them before? Poor Elvis - it looks like his Cadillac has gone the same way he did. The ivy seems to love it though.
    Honestly Valerie - is there anything you can't do!!!!!! By TV doodle - does this mean you did this while watching TV? Sugar I cannot walk and chew gum at the same time!!!!!
    Sandy xx

  32. You are wrinkling my brain! I LOVE the black and White doodle and instantly saw a face, I think you should add it to your 49 faces! Then I saw your lady and she still looks good even if you aren't happy! Fab! Thanks for sharing! Thanks for linking up to Show Your Face and for the shout out too. Kx
