dc pattern

i can hear them, their typical croaking associated with October.
 i look up and there they come, flying in their V pattern.
 another year has passed.
i have a kind of deja vu  because it seems as last year, or the year before...the same place, the same feeling.
the wild geese, they come from Russia and Scandinavia towards places close to spend the winter, to hibernate.
they take turns flying in front to make the long journey  a little easier.
 it fills me with warmth. 
the pattern of the seasons.
 a pattern inside.

this week our lovely artist Barbara made us take notice of  patterns ,
please visit her beautiful place .

nice weekend to all of you

not enough sun anymore for the green tomatoes,
 the autumn crocus is the star of the garden now,

i smile at all the things in my house reminding me of a dc theme,
the lady in the photo is my grandmother Maria,

can't help it, i have a weak spot for old wallpaper,

dc homage

homage to all sister artists throughout the ages,
 those who worked in stolen hours, unappreciated, ignored, scorned,
 denied access to a male art world and who, despite everything continued to work
 because it was their way of life,
 because that was what they were ,
 artist in heart and soul.

this weeks drawing challenge theme was chosen by the always surprising artist Kristen,
please go to her lovely place to find out about all the participants

dc cup

when i found out this morning about the new dc theme,
presented by allround artist Stephanie
 (i didn't had time to visit any of your blogs the past week) this morning, i was sitting outside enjoying some  sun,
 other autumn delights, 
and a cup of coffee.
my thoughts wandered to Canada because of the gorgeous autumn colors there
(not that i ever saw it in the real), my mind wandered to bears (i saw them, but only in the zoo)
  and back to 'cup'.
i just painted my wandering thoughts , i tried out gouache on canvasboard.
the paint still wasn't dry when i took the photos, a drop of white paint ran down
at the top of the heads, i decided to leave it alone.

have a beautiful weekend
