Saturday Post

Hi Everybody!

It's weekend, enjoy!

Today I am sharing a face, drawn with black ink onto an A3 background painted with acrylics. The border was cut from a magazine and collaged. I am linking to Paint Party Friday








 Some photos from my balcony!









These pics were taken last weekend in Duisburg when we visited H. We walked along the Rhine and then sat under some shady trees:











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

  9. Those tropical flowers really work really well with the lady. I wonder what she is up to? She is thinking about something from that look on her face. ANd your sunrises are always so beautiful. Do you still have the hot weather or have you finally cooled off a bit/ Happy weekend. Hugs-Erika

  21. I think I was most impressed by how you got the collaged frame to blend in so well with your beautiful painted face. This is true genius.

    I LOVED that bridge. It was incredible. I also see there is graffiti everywhere in the world, regardless of language.

    1. I glued the frame first, and then painted the lady to fit the frame.
