Another week is flying by, and I never know where the hours fly to.
For Art Journal Journey, in my garden - Yvonne's lovely summer theme - I have some more journal pages to show. I will also be linking to
Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin.
In the meantime I have a whole journal full of doodled stuff, and this piece here was made in recent weeks, too. I added some colour to it yesterday using Gelatos and 'no name' gelatos from Aldi, which are also very good at just a fraction of the price. I think this is me, looking at the birds and flowers on my balcony, which is my garden. And I wish I had a dog, too.
This is a hybrid piece, made using a photo taken from my balcony in the early morning, some flying ducks - from another photo - and some poppies completed this week.
This is the 'poppy' painting, done on a piece of white card saved from some packaging. It started life as series of red blobs where I was trying out some colours weeks ago. I discovered the 'blobs' this week whilst looking for something else, and thought they looked vaguely like poppies. I worked on them with India ink and gelatos to make the finished piece. It was then digitally 'cut out' and placed on the photo background above.
And here some more photos taken from my balcony this week:
The water in the Rhine has dropped, and we are now almost back to normal. As always,I love to watch the ships, and caught Maria chugging by:

This beauty was resting in a patch of sunlight:
And in case you were wondering why this post is called 'Da Vinci in Kaiserswerth' - here he is:
I would love to go for a cruise with Da Vinci!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
