Weekend Post!

 Hi Everybody!

Here's wishing us all  great weekend, in spite of the restrictions caused by Corona.
Let's hope that next year will be better! I am still in the clinic, the treatment is doing me good, but I will be here for another few weeks.

Today I am sharing an A3 mixed media piece:






I am linking to Tracey's challenge at AJJ

A beautiful sunrise from this day last year:













The crib in St Swidbert's basilica - it gets added to week for week during advent:







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

  6. I especially LOVE that background. Looks like you used all kinds of bits and bobs. It is great and goes nicely with your incredible drawing. It is magical. Thanks for sharing it with us at AJJ using Tracey's theme, too.

    Your photos from the advent are beautiful and it's always nice to review your photos from a year when COVID-19 was still unheard of.

  14. I"m glad the treatment is helping, Valerie. I hope you are allowed to have company but I know so many medical facilities are locking down for covid. Hopefully you have met other nice people there to enjoy all the holidays with.

  22. Glad things are going well at the clinic Valerie. I've been thinking of you. I love your wonderful piece for Tracey's challenge. I do like those "abstract" figures your do, although I know they are not exactly abstract. The photos are wonderful too. Take care and don't eat too many cookies while your getting your treatment.

  24. Good morning Professor Tups: I was very happy to hear from you this morning via my blog. As best I knew you had not been leaving comments and I was going to email you today so see if all was well. I am relieved to know that it is merely a blogger gremlin playing tricks. I think they can be malevolent little sods at times! As others more able to appreciate than I have pointed out, you have done a wonderful job with this latest submission, its textured layers adding depth and complexity. The weekend is almost over for you, but I imagine that weekend or weekday is pretty much the same, as it is for us. It's amazing how often I have no idea what day it is! Big snow overnight, so before I do anything else this morning I will have to shovel the driveway. If you lived close by I would make sure you came over to help and then we would have earned a coffee and a blueberry muffin. Makes all that effort worthwhile. I am glad that all is well, Valerie. Your comments by way of explanation appeared this morning, so perhaps Blogger has decided to behave. Hugs and kisses, extras in fact, from David

    1. Hi David, this has been happening on several blogs when I use my tablet, so I have had to go back and write again. Naughty blog gremlins. I have a plan here showing me where and when I have my treatment. Weekends are free, today I baked scones with another patient. Sorry about the snow, it's mild here, no snow in sight but probably rain tomorrow. Blueberry muffins are yummy! I made the comments this morning with my phone, which is rather fiddly for my fingers. Hugs to you and M!

  26. I love your artwork Valerie, and what a wonderful sunrise from last year. I didn't realise that you had to be in the clinic for so long but it will be worth it in the end. Take care, Sue xx

  27. Great page - we all need to look at things more for the possibility! Love the thought - I think you have that mentality when you look at things. Love your pictures! Get better soon! Many hugz

  28. Yes we have to see possibilities everywhere, we are all as one clinging on to hope. New rules and regulations have put many into a panic in the UK as they try to save their Christmas but to me my main concern is saving my family. I love all the texture on your page Valerie and the shadowy figures holding each other close.. here's to happy healthy days where we can all enjoy many sunsets without fear. Sending Hugs your way Tracey xx
