On Tuesday we are staring a new challenge at TIOT -
Things with wings. This could include birds, butterflies, winged insects, planes etc - let your fantasy fly!
I made a piece using an altered sunrise photo as a background. The birds were die cut and placed onto the photo, the text (from Thomas a Kempis) was added digitally. The town where he came from, Kempen, is an ancient walled town not far from here.
And you still have a week to join in Wilma's lovely 'Gemini' (twins) theme at
I made a hybrid tag using elements from Mischief Circus on a hand-painted background:
Tuesday is also Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday, so here a warm welcome to all of the nice ladies of the T Gang. My drink can be seen in one of the photos below.
On Saturday I went for a hike with 2 of my buddies, G and H. It was not too hot, sunny/cloudy and no rain, so ideal walking weather. We walked along the road to Wittlaer, the next little township down the Rhine. We then walked along this narrow path named after Max Clarenbach, a German artist who lived and worked here for many years, and the landscapes we see today can easily be recognised in many of his paintings:
We met some friendly cows who came to the fence to talk to us:
This is the ancient church:
And we visited his favourite pub, 'Brand's Jupp' next to which he lived.
This shows the history of the place:
Here is the Max Clarenbach Stübchen (Parlour) in the pub:
We took our drinks outside to the beautiful beer-garden, which overlooks the Rhine. The men chose alcohol-free beer and I had water:
It's a wonderful place to sit with beautiful views:
More photos to follow!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
