This week has flown by, or perhaps been blown away by
the stormy winds we have had these past 2 days.
I hope it soon calms down and turns towards spring.
Today when I was waiting for the bus, I was surrounded by
strange beings - a cow and a bear, 2 very sexy nuns,
some milk maids, a devil, Pippi Longstockings
and 2 Japanese schoolgirls in cake-frill short skirts.
And when the bus came along it was filled with more
strange folk. No, I haven't lost my last remnant of sanity -
today is the first day of the carnival here in Rhineland,
and strangely costumed people are in the majority. They
were on their way into Düsseldorf to join in the fun and parades,
and some were already
very drunk rather 'merry' although
it was still early in the morning.
Today I am sharing a 12"tag, made from partly peeled corrugated
card and collaged and painted in several layers, with some added
stamping on the top layer. I used some swallows from a stamp set
I added some moulding paste and art stones to make the centres
of the flowers, adding Stickles to give them some glitter:
I am linking to Tag Tuesday, spring flowers, Paint Party Friday, Stamps and stencils (paint, crackle and texture) and More mixed media, anything goes.
And I have one last piece for Linda's lovely challenge of
'50 shades of red' at
Here are the last photos taken at the museum, I love to walk through the rooms and view my fave paintings and installations:
This is a piece made by Marcel Broodthaers out of mussel shells:
I can never resist viewing Max Ernst, René Magritte, Joan Miró,
Pablo Picasso, George Grosz, Carlo Carra, Kurt Schwitters,
Paul Klee, Franz Marc and Amedeo Modigliani. It's a strange
feeling, humbling and inspiring at the same time, to stand
in a room surrounded by these
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
