Weekend post

Hi Everybody!

This past week has flown by again - too much to do, not enough time!
Or perhaps I just like to spend too much time walking about....

Today I am sharing another A2  (approx. 17" x 24") geometric-shapes mixed media page made a couple of months back at art group, and which somehow slipped to the bottom of one of my ever-growing piles. The page was gessoed, and then I drew in the shapes and painted them, layering some on top of others. I used an Edding pen to outline the shapes and add in some lines. The smaller patterns were added with stencils, the lines were drawn with a ruler - and still not quite straight!

And Nathalie and I discovered these painted rocks when we walked along the shore of the Rhine, so beautiful. Painted, and then left for others to enjoy:

Here I took a walk along the old bastions (walls) of the town:

This was one of the old watch-posts where the guards could shelter:

The sun goes down early these days:

While we were there the Canadian wild-geese flew around us before moving on:

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

Rain's Thursday art Date

Hi Everybody!

First and foremost I would like to wish all of my friends, fellow bloggers and family in the USA a very happy Thanksgiving!

Rain's theme this week is greys and browns, so I have tried to find things in these colour schemes. I am also linking to Paint Party Friday.  First up is a journal page, showing  various generations of my family taken at different times. I'm on there, too!

And a vintage journal page with script as theme:

A steampunk tag:

And a journal page using a photo from somewhere-in-London:

Some doodles and sketches from my sketch-books:

And some old sketches made back in the 1990s:

Lastly I have some old family photos as they fit the greys/browns theme, too.

Here she is second from the left, and the only one smiling at great Uncle Benny's wedding, together with her sisters, Betty and Pauline and the rather unhappy looking bride:

And here she was  about 3 years old:

 Having photos taken must have been tiresome, as most people look very unhappy!

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