Where does the time go? January is almost over, and there are never enough hours in the day. We're 'enjoying' some wild, wet and windy weather but milder days are in sight and then it will feel like spring again - crazy weather!
Today I am sharing an A2 - 17" x 24" - hybrid piece. The background circles were painted some time back at Art Group - I like to use up leftover paint! The grungy blue background was added with a sponge and my left hand. The leaf was torn from a garden-centre prospect, magicked into my graphics programme and digitally cut out. After that I digitally changed the colours and textures. I have also made it into a digital punch and stamp so I can use it again. I am linking to Jo's 'something new' challenge at Art Journal Journey
and to TIOT - colourful grunge or white space. The quote is important for me as I am having to go new ways and try new methods just now. I have also bought left handed scissors and am learning to cut with them:

The shop windows are filling up with spring fashions and decorations:
I worked in this building for 2 years when I first came to Germany. I had to take a job while the school offices were checking my qualifications, which really took them 2 years, although I had all my papers officially translated into German. Then a got a call from them to say that they had a position as teacher for me and could I start the next day....I started after the summer holidays!
I enjoyed my time at Thyssen Steel Union. Our offices were on the 6th floor, and the canteen at the top, so we used to walk up the stairs before lunch to work up an appetite!
I walked through Hofgarten to visit the birds:
The swan swam quicker than I could take the photo:
Beautiful reflections on the lakes:
And this evening as I came home from the doctor's I saw the moon and Venus twinkling at me:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
