Friday/Saturday post

Hi Everybody!

Today I met up with some friends in a Café in town here and we had ice coffees, and spent a nice couple of hours talking about this and that. It's great to have a catch-up from time to time!

Today I am sharing another one of my ladies inspired by Effy Wild, I love these ladies with big hair and lotS of leaves and flowers. This is an A3 piece painted with acrylics. It is inspired by the film  'Lady with red hair' (1940) starring Miriam Hopkins and Claude Rains, and is my last entry for Alisons 'Play it again, Sam' challenge at AJJ:

And some funnies / thinkies:

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

Midweek Post

Hi Everybody!

I was out and about quite early today, as I needed to visit my doctor and hand over all of the reports from the clinic and collect a prescription. The weather was nice, so I was able to walk there  and back leisurely. This afternoon it's cold and stormy, so I'm not going out again! Good weather to stay home and make art! This piece was made while I was still in the clinic. There's the text of a Frank Sinatra song on it again, 'Fly me to the moon, and let me live among the stars'. It's an A3 piece painted with acrlic paints and markers and with added glitter. I am linking to Alison's 'Play it again, Sam' challenge at AJJ. I will also be linking to Rain's Thursday Art Date tomorrow, her theme is branches and leaves. My lady has leaves in her hair and in the sky, and my photos all have leaves and branches:

Some photos of my walks:

And some funnies:

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

T sTands for Tuesday on Monday

Hi Everybody!

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend. It was a strange but good feeling being at home on my own, and slowly I am getting used to it. I did some shopping on Friday to tide me over the weekend and today I will drive with my neighbour to Aldi to stock up for the week.  I managed a couple of nice walks, but have to take it slowly because of the atrial fibrillation which keeps rearing its ugly head.

Today I have a tag for Sandie's challenge at Tag Tuesday. You still have a week to enter the challenge:

And I also have a journal page, meant for Alison's 'Play it again,Sam' challenge at AJJ and for Elizabeth's T sTands for Tuesday link party which begins this evening:

This piece was inspired by Frank Sinatra's wonderful song, 'They've got an awful lot of coffee in Brazil'

And here I would like to give a warm welcome to all of the lovely ladies of the T Gang who visit here.

And now some photos of my walk on Saturday, through the fields, along the Rhine and then I landed at a cafe - what else?!

And some thinkies/funnies:

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