It's weekend - enjoy!
For Art Journal Journey, Journeys, (Erika's lovely theme) I have a hybrid/painted piece, I used a photo of the Rhine as my background, and I added 2 of my birds, the flowers and the text digitally. After fixing the page into my journal, I painted round the edges with sky blue metallic, and added some colour with gelatos. The birds were stenciled, and then I wrote my message around the image: 'Migrating birds can fly thousands of miles. They move in flocks, giving each other support and safety. The don't need GPS, and we use the term 'bird-brain' to insult people? Would that we could journey like them'.
Yesterday I showed a photo of the ferry here, and some people asked about it.
The ferry crosses the Rhine, back and forth, all day, everyday, and is the only possibility here to cross over. There are bridges, but they do involve more driving and a lot of traffic, so many people use the ferry. And some, like I do, cross over here and there for fun, and ride bikes or go for walks on the other side. I always like watching the cars, vans, tractors etc driving onto the ferry.
The other side of the river belongs to another town:
These photos were taken when I was on board:
And this is the view of our little town from the boat. Lots of people were out and about, it was a sunny Sunday afternoon:
And the view up the Rhine on the way back. (Up is towards the Source of the river in Switzerland, and down is towards Holland and the sea) You can see the next bridge in the distance.
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
