It's weekend - enjoy!
For Art Journal Journey, maps, I have another hybrid page. The background is a collage of number plates, and the three men are made with stencils cut from a prospect and then cut out of an old map. I added the sentiment digitally.
This cactus is outdoors on my balcony the whole year, and seems to thrive, as it keeps producing 'add-ons' and even flowering. It started out some years back as one tiny 'finger' in a mini pot:
The water in the Rhine has started to recede, which is good, but we have been told to expect a plague of mosquitoes this year, as the flooded meadows and fields are giving them an ideal breeding ground. :
I love seeing these 'windows' on the old wall:
I walked home over the old fortification walls, which once served, together with the Rhine and the moats, to defend the town, which was virtually an island. Kaiserswerth means 'Emperor's Island':
The horses were grazing in what was once the moat:
I love this quiet path, and always think of all the soldiers and watchmen who used to guard the town way back when.
Have a great weekend you all, take care,
and thanks a lot fo coming by!
