My journal page for Art Journal Journey, maps, has been inspired by the French expressionist painter and sculptor Georges Braques, who lived from 1882-1963. Together with Picasso he founded the cubist movement. My favourite paintings though are his birds. I made templates some years back, and have used them again here, on a dark background which has been sprayed and splattered with bright colours. I then digitally overlayed the painting with a map (Wikipedia), and added the sentiment.
The water in the Rhine is still high, but hasn't risen since yesterday. The top mark here shows the height of the water in 1795 - good 6 metres higher than it is just now, which must have been an absolute catastrophe.
I love the reflections on the water:
This boat was too large to fit into my photo:
A hungry magpie:
And Mrs Blackbird:
Have a great day, take care
and thanks a lot for coming by!
