Birds, coffee and a face

Hi Everybody

"Breaking news."

The Op went well, I am still connected to various tubes,
Now I just need to heal. Thanks for all the good wishes!

Another scheduled post today, meant for Art Journal Journey, if music be the food of love,  99 faces, and Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday.

I painted the bird with acrylics onto a piece of DP along with  a green face, which was ghastly. So I chopped off the green face, added another of 'my' faces digitally, and that was it. The text is from the Beatles' beautiful song.




A big hello to all the T gang!
I'm sharing my coffee once again.
Carolyn sent me this photo , so I think it's a great motto for me for this week!


And I hope to soon be up and running and to be able to visit my wild geese and ducks again!





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

  3. I added your link to the T post, and even if you are not able to visit everyone who visits you, it's OK, because at least they will know you are thinking of them, AND you came through the operation in good stead. Just remember, you must walk before you can run (grin).

    Lovely face you created on top of the blackbird. Seems we've both had one of those weeks where we both rejected everything we created. At least you were able to salvage your entry.

    Love the photo of the coffee. I think I need that, too.

    Thanks for sharing your art and joining us for T this Tuesday. Look forward to your getting back with your ducks, geese, and Rhine boats, too.

    Alles Liebe dir und herzliche Grüsse, Sichtwiese

  31. Whew - such a relief it was when this post came - so thankful you are through with the surgery. I know there will be hard days ahead so I am praying lots. In fact, woke up and felt the need to pray for you in the night one night. Thanks so much for the update. Yes - you will be back visiting your wild geese and ducks sooner than you think! LOVE seeing those little duckies.... sooo precious.

    And loved that black bird behind your face - fun creation! XOXO j.
