dc garland

it's been a while and time does fly,
november was misty and though i like the mist and it's fairy-tale stillness,
it's wooly effect and air of mystery,
i also felt a kind of mist in my head,
 it was filled with worries,questions, thoughts and answers 
and no room seemed left to come to this place, i felt better being just on my own.

from time to time treasured artwork on my walls and in the cabinet reminded me of you,
sometimes just a circle, a ladder, moon and stars, a little bird,
 pictures of trees and castles or
needlework, scissors, a color and a child at play, it all meant something more...

this week sweet Nadine presented us with a fun theme
and i felt like painting a garland.
(those funny things which can change a room's atmosphere instantly, even the most dreary and desolate ones)

december will be very busy here but i have already an intention for 2014;
to hang out here and enjoy it 

love you all
have a nice weekend

a storm is on its way, as long as nobody's hurt
that's just fine by me,
mighty wind, do i smell the ocean in you ?

have a nice week

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
