Another week has flown by, and it' time for Paint Party Friday again,
hosted by Eva and Kristin. I am also linking to Art Journal Journal, nature's wonders, and Moo Mania and More, Nature's beauty.
The painting of a rose is one I was not happy with, so I digitally 'cut out' the part I liked best and added the sentiment from Gertrude Stein, part of the poem 'Sacred Emily' written at the beginning of the 20th century.
This is a digital re-working of 2 paintings made last year, combined with the photo of Saint Swidbert. The first was part of a painting of the Basilica windows, placed over a painting made of a house nearby, with the photo of St Swidbert's statue placed in between. I love to be able to combine art and photos to make new art, and this is very exciting and fascinating technique for me:
We have had hot and sunny weather this week, giving us blue skies and
blue water in the Rhine:

The ducklings have grown. They are almost as large as their parents, but still hang out together as a family. Mr and Mrs Duck can be proud of their 6 young ones:
I love the sharp contrasts in light and shadow:
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
