Thursday/Friday Post

 Hi Everybody!

Hope your week has been good up till now!

Today I have an A3 mixed media page to link to Erika's 'favourite things' challenge at AJJ and to Paint Party Friday

I love to be by the sea and to swim, and would love to be able to swim with dolphins and sea-horses!









A beautiful sunrise as seen from my window at the clinic:





Some pictures of our snow - in the meantime it's back to mild, wet and windy!









Hearty Ivy:


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

  7. I just love your sea page Valerie. Your textured background and images really create a lot of motion.I'm with you. Swimming with seahorses and dolphins would be great to do. And your photos are great, especially the ivy which looks like harts growing off the stem. Thanks so much for adding another page to AJJ. Muc appreciated. hugs-Erika

  13. I am quite sure that the seahorses and dolphins would welcome you with open fins, Valerie, well the dolphins would anyway. The seahorses would have to wiggle their tails, I suppose. Did you know that it is the male seahorses that give birth to live young? The world of nature is full of surprises! Yesterday I had to have some routine bloodwork done and it is quite a procedure during COVID. Anyway, it is done now and I expect a Zoom meeting with my doctor in a week or so, so that she can tell me what a fine specimen I am! Joe Biden and Kamalla Harris are now installed and the world is a better place. Keep a close eye on that woman. She is going to make a difference! Hugs and kisses, David

    1. Hi David! I like the Idea of being welcomed with open fins! Glad you got your bloodwork done. I'm sitting waiting for the eye Specialists to Check my eyes,my right eye is inflamed and the clinic got me an appointment straight away.I am happy that the inauguration went well. Take care, you fine specimen! Hugs!

  15. Well I think your art is as close as you can get to swimming with the sea life. Well done indeed. You are in the midst of winter. The snow looks pretty from afar. LOL have a nice day.

  23. Under the sea reminds me of a song, but I can't remember it at the moment. I really LOVE the sea horses. They are my favorite, along with the star fish. It's a great entry for Art Journal Journey using Erika's theme, too.

    You got snow! It looks so lovely there. And your sunrises are gorgeous, too.

  35. Pretty colors in your sea fantasy page. Lovely sunrise. We've been getting dustings of snow, too, this week. Doesn't make me ambitious enough to go outside to make a snowman. Take care.

    ReplyDelete
  36. as an ocean lover too I'd love to swim in your delightful sea page! I have been beside dolphins- an amazing experience! Your sunrise photos are so beautiful. I catch sunsets but no up early enough for any sunrise-which wouldn't matter at home cuz I can't see the sun rise with all the neighborhood homes and trees. Thankfully that's not too much snow you have. Stay in and keep warm and safe. happy PPF!

  43. Love the sea piece! Oh, how I would love to spend some time by the sea this year, but I think I'll have to wait another year due to the circumstances. Your snow pictures are wonderful. We just received a bit more snow this morning. But due to the temps it will be gone by noon I think. Happy PPF!
