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.

three muses: rustle of spring

it is still snowing, but we all are ready for spring
and anemone pulsatilla is one of my favorite spring flowers, because also her feathery seed stand is a delight for a long time!

wir sind jetzt dann wohl alle reif für den frühling...
nebst krokussen & co freue ich mich immer besonders auf meine kuhschelle (auch küchenschelle genannt), der die post jetzt eine briefmarke aus der blumenserie gewidmet hat... man hat so schön lang was von dieser blume: erst die schöne blüte, und dann sehr lange noch den fedrigen samenball, der auch optisch total was hergibt!

the three muses: time

the time is winter. still. sadly. i´m longing for warmth. 
i have the forth serious cold in a row, unable to go to work and feel like caught in the film "groundhog day". when i think it´s coming to an end the next virus has hit me:((

jerry jones (shadowhouse creations) has made a wonderful new texture set.
he is so generous in sharing, it would be great if people would give some donations, so he can keep up creating his wonderful work.
he´s one of my absolutely top favorites when it comes to textures.

art journal journey: peace

there is a wonderful theme at the monthly challenge of art journal journey - peace...

until last week we were buried in masses of snow (all rained away this week). the first impression of snow is it´s beauty, the silence it lays over the landscape. but then, going to work over heaps of muddy turning snow isn´t fun. so actually i´m longing for spring...

made this spread in my capolan altered book with the big snow stencil from dylusions, tape (added punched snowflakes), a few rubber stamps and self created faux postage.
