More Frost

Hi Everybody!
Hope your weekend has been enjoyable.

For Art Journal Journey, winter wonderland, I have another hybrid piece. The background is one of my frosty leaves photos. The little girl is a Banksy stencil from Stencilry, the bird one of my photos, and the quote from Robert Frost.




I love watching the world wake up each morning. In the summer I sit outside with my coffee, these days I prefer to stay inside:


The 'suns' are the lights from the airport:





The gulls were all standing like soldiers in a row:



There were, as always, lots of ships passing up and down the Rhine:


The majority are really huge:




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

  2. Great way to use those cool frosty leave photos. The quote is perfect too. I love Robert Frost. He's a native of New Hampshire where I live and his words really speak about us "hardy" New Englanders. Great sunrise and birdies today too. And I still can't get over your green grass! Hugs!

  4. I really LOVE the Banksy stencil. And that Frost quote is something to ponder. But the photos today were what really captured my attention. The ships, the gulls all in a row, and the early morning sky each provided a very different mood and feel. Wonderful post today.

  8. Fantastic page with the quote by the aptly named Robert Frost.

    I felt the warmth from your wonderful photographs and just loved the gulls with there red legs. The look like soldiers on parade. Great to see the airport lights and think of my daughter landing there so near to where you live. She seems to have to 'pop' there quite often these days.

    Have a wonderful day

    Love Chrissie xx

  21. It's great to make an artwork from your own photographs, this one is really spectacular. Love the frosted leaves (I liked them the first time too).
    The gulls are so sweet with their red legs and matching feet.

  23. It's great waking up to your photos to start my day. I had no idea you lived so close to the airport. Each frame of your morning turned out so well and the photos along the Rhine are fascinating, especially the one of the extra L O N G ship. Your journal page is exquisite using your photo of the frosted leaves along with the little girl stencil and her balloon. Your bird photo is perfect in the corner. Beautiful work!

    hugs,
