Where do you go to?

Hi Everybody!

It's Friday, so time for Eva's and Kristin's Paint Party Friday, and
every day is the right day for Art Journal Journey, For the Record.
Recently I discovered this lovely picture of Sigmund Freud in the newspaper, and straightaway I thought of the title of a song from Peter Sarstedt, a blast from the past taking us back to 1969 - where do you go to my lovely? I made an A3
mixed media page.







And here the original song from 1969 sung by Peter Sarstedt:


Today I had to go to the dentist, but it wasn't too bad, and I was soon back
home again and ready to enjoy my coffee. The new leaves on the trees
are just wonderful, I love this spring green!


The moss and lichens are growing well, too:


The field in the background has been plowed and soon the flowers will be blooming and offered for sale:



The water in the Rhine is rising again:




I love looking through the arch to the castle grounds:


The campers are setting up their summer quarters again:


A pretty corner:


Market day:



The window of the bank:


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

  4. Your are going to have leaves pretty soon. I am soooo jealous. Luckily today it is raining and once the sun comes out we should really green up quick since the grass is already getting more green, even having had snow the other day. I remember this song. It was actually in some movie that came out a few years ago but I can't remember what movie it was. Love your piece today. The lyrics do go very well with Sigmond F. Happy PPF!

  7. I've never heard of that song, but I love how you interpreted it with your art. This was fabulous, because I simply adore mixed media.

    What awesome photos today. Glad your check-up went well. I have never seen the campers before, probably because I am new to your blog since last spring. I was certainly impressed with the photos you took and was really happy to see the market. What a great mix of flowers, green, and great art today.

  25. LOVE the journal page and I don't remember the song it did have a familiar feel to it as I listened to it :) Beautiful photos and so happy the dentist visit wasn't bad. I think I may have one of those coming up :/ perhaps I should check my calendar.

  26. Exciting, creative and clever page:-) Plus this was dentist week. I lost a crown and had to have it reattached.

  27. That song is truly nostalgic, but I wouldn't want Freud to look inside my head!!

  28. After you posted that "Alice" song, I will always open your songs!! That post was my all time favorite! This one is pretty good too Valerie, what a good song to go with Sigmund Freud. It is so good when an image fits so perfectly.
    I always languish through your pictures and I feel like I would be much more creative if I could live in your village and do the walks you take. I think Europeans have such a flair and so much style!

  31. Thanks for the walk down memory lane, Valerie. I sure miss those old songs, but I had forgotten those big hairdos! Your art certainly does work well with the song and is beautifully done. I loved the spring green of the Rhine.

    ReplyDelete
  32. For me just seeing the Rhine is a treat...but adding your art and song makes the experience even better! Someday.....I will see your part of the world and I'll look in windows! Have the best of days!!

  33. Brilliant lateral thinking on your AJJ piece, I had to think for a minute how Freud could link with "Where do you go to my lovely".
    Your photos show so much colour and blue skies and sun, you live in a different world! I do like your photo of the white door, there is something about a picture of a door.

  34. A fabulous journal page and photos. I am so enjoying these trips down memory lane with the songs.
