This week is flying by again, and today we even have
wonderful sunshine - so nice after the grey and gloomy
days. My ribs are still sore, but I went out for a short walk today,
and it was great to be by the Rhine again.
I do not like stopping home all day and have
been rather stir-crazy these past days, but the main
things is that my
barbecued cracked ribs
are healing. And it did give me lots of
time for being creative!
One of the things I made is a box canvas, 12 x 9 1/2". It had already
been painted before, and I wanted something new. I
worked it over using scraps of paper napkins,
torn pieces of old letters, stamps from an old
passport, and loads of paints, sprays, German glass
glitter, crackle glaze,
various Frantage embossing powders,
and some lovely pink and green iridescent waxes
from Pentart. I had great fun playing with this.
I added the transparent photo of a man and his
son. I don't know who they are, let's just say the represent
all who have somehow passed through the
world, written those letters, used the
passports etc. The photo is just a shadow or 'shade'
of them all. Friday, January 27th is the International
Holocaust Remembrance Day.
I am linking to Art Journal Journey, Erika's wonderful theme
of 'Tell me a story', Paint Party Friday, hosted as always by Eva and Kristin.
and Simon Monday Challenge, spread your wings.

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
