Saturday this and that

Hi Everybody!

It's weekend - have a good one!

For 99 faces and Art Journal Journey, collage, I made a face and collaged the sentiment. I made a series of these monochrome, rather old-fashioned faces in various colours, this is the second one. I drew her with black ink and painted her with water-colours. The quote is from Marilyn Monroe.






 

The photos were taken yesterday when the sun was shining, and once again I saw lots of birds which caught my eye.




The cormorant was drying his wings, which always looks like he's greeting the sun - perhaps he is.







And the gulls have the last word again:


Have a great day you all, take care, 
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  1. Wow, your lady is bright. Quite bold, too.

    I've never seen a cormorant and am not sure I've ever heard of them, either. This one is a real beauty and very proud of itself.

    What a fantastic final photo with all the birds facing away from you for the final word. Clever and funny. Have a super Saturday, dear Valerie.

  2. Lovely birds, the cormorant is so graceful. Great face and quote to go with it, they suit each other.

  3. I love the bold color! We went to the ocean on Wednesday and I counted 21 cormorants, six Pelicans and too many to count sea gulls! Looks like we both had good days!

  6. What a terrific lady you created with the deco look about her. She will be great in all sorts of setting for sure.

    Stunning photographs of your 'posing' birds, Vic is always impressed with how you get them to stay in place while you click. He finds bird to photograph and by the time he clicks they have flown away lol

    Have a great day

    Love Chrissie xx

  20. I love how you have drawn your face today - a really outstanding look! Your photos are great today - loved the cormorant pics - we used to walk round a park lake at our old house and a cormorant used to sit on a log in the lake and strike a pose just like this! Chrisx
