2nd on the 2nd - a blast from the past

Hi Everybody!

Today it's Elizabeth's '2nd on the 2nd' where we re-show
a post made previously.
This mixed media and collaged canvas, 30" square, was made in 2015,
and is one I like very much. I wanted to give the feeling of
autumn leaves,
first frost etc.

The photos are all from 2015, too:

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


  1. There was a definite feeling of autumn in both your art and photos you shared from 2015. That was a large canvas, and I really liked the deep, rich colors, as well as the bird (raven?).

    It was great to look back on those photos and see how much your area has changed or stayed the same. Seems it's basically the same, with the exception of many, many falling leaves.

    Thanks for sharing this look back at autumn 2015 with us as your second look on the 2nd.

    1. There's a new, higher railing along the Rhine but that's about all that's changed!

  2. I love this painting, it is beautiful, and looks good on your wall, too. The golds and all the textures make it very rich looking. Lovely photos, too, do I recognise Kettwig there? Have a great day, hugs, Sarah

  3. Blast from the past, wow, awesome, loving the page today again.xx [aNNie]

  4. A wonderful piece you have chosen to show us for a second time. It has such wonderful colours, textures and shapes.

    Very beautiful photographs with a beautiful walk. Lots of shapes, colours and texture in that as well. I can see you must get lots of ideas for your art from your walks.

    Thank you for sharing them allagain.

    Have a great weekend

    Love Chrissie xx

  5. A wonderful post to re visit Valerie. It was and is a beautiful page, great photos as well.
    Hope today will be a good one for you.

  12. Beautiful autumn collage that you have unearthed today! And a nice look back at the photos.

  13. I really like that canvas too. The colors and the little glitter make it amazing! I hope you have it hanging on a wall! And the photos really feel like fall, which is coming on fast. At least here. Hope all is well. Hugs-Erika

  14. The fall colors and textures in your work are gorgeous! Wow! The glitter adds the right effect. Love your photos too. Those trees are showing their full fall glory! :)

  15. That's a beautiful page, Valerie. I can see why you're especially fond of it. Gorgeous layering and texture. I enjoyed your photos as well.

  16. I'm wild about your blast from the past. That was before my time so new to me. Love the colors, textures, the wonderful silhouette bird. Looks like fall!

    Beautiful scenes today, too. The sunrises or sunsets are breathtaking and I love those half-timbered houses!

  17. So pretty! I really love the deep rich colors and the texture between the leaves. Such a perfect depiction of autumn leaves.

  18. Love the texture and color of your piece.
    As always, I enjoyed our walk. I really like that white building with brown edging. It has such a warm feel to it.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  19. Wow! I am enjoying the remaining Summer sun at the moment (although rain forecast for tomorrow) but must say that seeing this fabulous collage and your Autumn photos I am ready for a change of Season!
    Hugs, Chrisx

  20. I love the use of that crow against that pretty color. Very striking

  21. Ohhh this is really gorgeous. The photos are so impressive. I want to be there.

  22. What beautiful colors in your art! The touch of turquoise is just right!

  23. Dein schöne schimmernde Herbstleinwand gefällt mir sehr liebe Valerie und der Rabe paßt perfekt. Im Moment sehe ich hier sehr viele Rabenvögel in den gemähten Wiesen und Äckern sitzen und wohl nach Würmern und Ködern picken.
    Deine stimmungsvollen Photos, die das goldene Herbstlicht so schön eingefangen haben, sind so schön.
    Liebe Grüße und schönen Sonntag.
    Big Hugs

  24. I love the colours in your piece you have chosen to show us for a second time.
