Weekend post

Hi Everybody!

It's weekend - enjoy! From Saturday evening on we are expecting cold, wet and windy weather again, but the few days with sunshine have been great, and I was out and about lots to make the most of it. Autumn and Halloween are my fave seasons!

Today I am sharing another A3 Mixed media spooky piece to get us into the Halloween spirit. This has been painted, sprayed, dripped, doodled and stamped. The gold parts were stamped using a glue pad and a special gold foil:











 The hawk  again:


And being mobbed by a crow and a magpie:






The woodpecker who loves to eat my feeders empty:


Some beautiful morning scenes:








And more fungi:







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

  5. We've hardly got any mushroom this year and you have so many cool ones. I also love the spooks in today's art. It has a modern feel and certainly is perfect for Halloween. Happy weekend again. Hugs-Erika

  8. Wow, das sieht aus wie ein fliehender Vorhang!!! Supergruselig-schön :-)
    Eigentlich eher fast freundlich...
    Ja, sieht so aus als ob die Krähe herunterschimpft :-) Der andere Vogel lässt es über sich ergehen, ich musste wirklich lachen...
    Leider sind wir von Häusern umgeben, danke für die schönen Sonnenaufgangsbilder.
    Pilze habe ich noch gar nicht gesehen, aber "wir hüten das Haus", immernoch Grippe... GlG und ein schönes WE, Iris

  9. Good Morning Val!. Thanks for another lovely post. Just rolled out of bed here, the kids let me sleep for once, what a treat! Your ghostly congregation in the sky is fantastic, I will be watching the sky on Halloween to see if I can spot them. Wonderful photos, too, you always find the best ones. Have a great day, Hugs, Sarah

  10. The two little girls from next door came to visit yesterday and were so excited telling us about their Halloween costumes, and asking us to make sure we had "good treats" for them! I think they wanted to make sure that we would know it was them dressed up in their spooky clothes. Your skies look very appropriate for a night filled with hobgoblins and witches - and that doesn't take into account a few sinister politicians that come to mind!

  11. Good morning, I love your art page very much-the gold just really completes it. Enjoying your fall photos so much-my favorite time of year too. enjoyed the birds-I have only seen one woodpecker here at the lake and that was just after we got the keys last December.
    enjoy your weekend hugs Kathy

  13. Your mixed media page is wonderful. It even had me a bit shaken when you shared a few close-ups. Those ghosts packed quite a punch.

    Enjoyed seeing the raven and the crow. It also seems like everywhere I go, I see lots of fungi. It must be THE year for it with all the rain everyone's had. Great shots today.

    Wow- those sky photos are just stunning. I always love seeing fungi- fascinating for sure. :)

    Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs!

  16. I love this time of year, too. Your spooky art and seasonal nature photos are perfect! Our woodpeckers have returned now that we've put the suet feeder back out. I enjoy seeing a variety of bird life :)

  17. Definitely spooky! :)
    Oh my gosh, these pictures are breathtaking. That last one is wonderful. And would make all kinds of wondrous fairytale backgrounds.

  18. That sure is a spooky piece of art!! The hawk does not seem overly bothered by the other birds. Really enjoyed your sunrise photos. You have so many different fungi there.

  21. The zombies on your spooky page look quite scary! I don't think I want o be around when they're about.
    Loved the photos again - don't think I've ever seen a red toadstool like that in real life. wonder if the fairies were near. Beautiful sunrise pictures.

  27. Ooh, that is a really spooky page - those elongated figures are very strange and eerie - brilliant! Amazing nature photography as always - great bird pictures, and the fungi are fabulous (though some of them are pretty strange too!), as are those magical skyscapes.
