Today we had another dry, cold day, with lots of opportunities for walking. The Rhine is rising rapidly after all the rainfall here in the past few days, Yesterday the water had risen up to the pathway along the river, but today the pathway was underwater, too. We are expecting a big storm with heavy winds from Sunday, so that should give us some excitement!
I made this A2 piece a couple of weeks back in art group. The background was gessoed and textured before I painted the circles. The little girl and peacock feathers were added with stencils and black acrylic paint using a sponge:
Then I made some digital alterations with hearts so it fits to Elizabeth's theme at AJJ and to TIOT, share the love:
I am also linking to Paint Party Friday
Wednesday was a cold but sunny day and I walked along the Rhine:
It is very full and has overflowed its banks:
The water fowl love the floods:
The water is up to the path:
The moon was beautiful:
Today (Thursday) the water was a lot higher, it's nearly up to the top:
The pathway is officially closed - not that it stops people walking there:
One of the marks on the wall showing previous high water stands - this is nearly a meter over my head:
Some of the marks are higher than the wall, which is over 3 meters:
The little stream is now like a lake:
Water, water everywhere:
I'm wondering how high it will be tomorrow!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
