It's been a wet and windy day here, but we had a wonderful day yesterday, with loads of sunshine so I'm not complaining, at least not too loudly....
Yesterday I went to art group again after a break of a few weeks and was able to do a bit of crafting. I used a Roy Lichtenstein image from an old calendar (from the 1970s). I hacked it into pieces with the big paper-cutter and then had fun re-arranging them. I haven't finished the piece yet, it is rather large - 17" x 24" - and will work on it again another time. But I magicked the pieces into my graphic programme and then played around with them on a red background. The sentiment is something important for me just now. I am linking to Jo's 'something new' challenge at Art Journal Journey, and to Paint Party Friday:
This is as far as I have got with the original - the pieces were glued on haphazardly and outlined with a wide. yellow calligraphy marker. I am looking forward to seeing what I will do next, at the moment I don't know:
Wednesday started off with a wonderful dawn and sunrise:
I walked long the Rhine into Düsseldorf, and took a quick detour into Nord Park and had a rest in the Japanese Garden, a beautiful and peaceful place in all seasons:
This is a restaurant at the Rhine, and I didn't go in for coffee!
The Relief on the wall shows how boats were rowed and towed along in the old days:
It's early even for the snow-drops:
This coil leads up to the bridge which I often walk over . this time I went under it:
Dark clouds but no rain:
And hundreds and hundreds of Canadian wild geese everywhere:
These Canadian visitors seem to love the Rhine:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
