We had some nice autumn weather today - cold and windy,
but sunny, and it was fun watching the clouds race across the skies.
For Art Journal Journey, Indian Summer, I made a hybrid/mixed media piece.
I used a collaged background, which I overlayed with a filter to give some interest, and then a cut out photo of a crow on a branch. The other animals and pumpkin were added digitally. The beautiful quote is from the book of Proverbs.
It was fun reading the comments on the photos I showed yesterday, especially about that tall piece of art in the penultimate photo. My visitors made some good suggestions for using it - as a coat rack, a climbing pillar, a phallic symbol, a bird perch to hang bird food on and a cat climbing post!
Today I am taking you on the next stage of my walk, to the old County Parliament building and the park around it. The politicians have a new domicile at the Rhine and this lovely house now houses the K21 - the museum of art from the 21st century.
The lake around it was also part of the fortifications which protected the town in the old days, and is called the 'Schwanenspiegel' - the swans' mirror. I saw lots of geese and cormorants and ducks, but no swans this time:
I'm glad I don't have to work on the roof, although there is surely a great view:
I will show the rest of the photos in my next post, but I do have some
great shots of the heron in the stream that I took this afternoon:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
