social media

i have my reasons why i´m NOT at facebook or twitter. and if you pin my work on pinterest, please make sure to link it back to me by taking the button on my side: that will bring you to my board with all my art-links. thanks for respecting that.

i consider my blog to be my "artistic diary" - so i can recap what i made and which influences i got (exhibitions etc).

currently i try to publish frequently once in a week (mondays/tuesdays mostly)

People with a Google+ account: please leave a direct blog link, otherwise i can´t visit you.

take-a-word: australia

this is a song for marie, our aussie challenge host.
i found the kookaburra in wikipedia, the children´s song is googled.

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
merry, merry king of the bush is he.
Laugh, Kookaburra, laugh, Kookaburra,
gay your life must be.

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
eating all the gumdrops he can see.
Stop, Kookaburra, stop, Kookaburra,
leave some there for me!


  1. This is wonderful! Love the song words! xxoo

  2. One of my favorite songs growing up...
    thank you for the ear worm Johanna ;)

  10. I love your kookaburra image, Johanna, and the song lyrics as well. A long time ago Marie sent me a CD of Aussie songs. I must dig it out from wherever I packed it when I moved and see if this one is among them! Thanks for your loyal participation in our blog challenges, Johanna!
