Friday Five and angels

Good morning,
the time flies so fast and it friday again.
Let's join in Willy Nilly Friday Five.


I'm in concern about my mother. She comes today in a hospital.
Hope, she will be well and back on Christmas and her 91th birthday.


Have finished the aangels on book sheets from my first try to paint.
Here I wrote about.


Lucky, that I found two small wooden boards (210 x 400mm)
and some free hours for painting. Hooray!
These both are acrylic paint, that I really like more than watercolors.


A little Christmas decoration.
Most of my old decoration things I gave away.
Life is easier without to much stuff.
But, of course, I have still enough for the whole home.


Two books, what I read.
Both are random finds for little money, both are very good.

A Polish Christmas song (a lullaby for the small Jesus), what I very like.

Enjoy your time.

Leben mit Büchern

Ein biszchen weihnachtlich - ein biszchen editiert...

Ich wünsche Euch eine schöne Zeit



Japan and japanese anemones (for all, who could not travel)
they are so shining brigt in autumn sunshine,
like little lanterns
and sweet memories warm us in cold times.

Today I'm drinking water.
It's sparkling in the sunshine, when winter sun is coming out
(let's celebrate this moment!)

I like the sparkling fountain at my loveliest place in summer
(the princely wine terrace by the castle nearby out town)

I like the frozen water in wintertime.
Water is a famous element, we could not live without...
(but we forget that often)

I like the fresh cool rains in early spring
(as a child have celebrated to jump in the puddles)

I like the fun by the water in summertime.
Celebrating holidays and going for a swim
(and I'm so waiting of this season back again)

To celebrate...

This is a parade to celebrate the Future home of something great.
(I know we’re a little vague on specifics,
but we’ve got a really good feeling about it)

Trying to paint again

A very long time ago, almost wo decades, I've painted big abstrakt
 acrylic pictures on wood.
But than happened a lot of bad things in my life
 and most of these paintings are lost or destroyed... and I'm unleared to paint.
Lost my personal style. Never more tried...never could.

I never was a friend of watercolors or colorpencils, seems me to pale.
 I was always a woman of big formats and intensebright colors.
 A very long time ago.
My life is no more the same and the biggest problem is just to have a few
 free hours in one piece, without breaking and disruption.
 I cannot begin a big picture, when I know, that I must go away after one hour...
So I made only paper collages in last years. 
That I can break, whenever it must be and to begin it again is easy.

Never tried to draw on book sheets before - I grew up with a high regard 
for books and there is some overcoming for me to do what is popular today.
Finally I found an old destroyed book with loose leaves and I've just done it. 
Draw at them.

But which colors should I use?
 Thried this and that, but it wasn't the right... and than I found my nailpolish.
Have such a lot of nailpolish, the most I got for free in a shop, 
what was open the last day - the colors were so beautiful and I took a lot.
But never used: the colors don't fit with my skin tone or my clothing... 
and I'm so much working with my hands,
 that I cannot save the polish more than one day. Or only a few hours...
Well, let's try to paint with them!

First try with nailpolish, but it isn't really good. I don't like it.
Well, let me use it only partial.

Now I bought watercolors and the second try is a little better.
The white wings aren't good, they are to white!
At first I took white watercolor, but it wasn't really white and I tried white acrylic paint.
Must make that still better, but I think, that could be a way.
Let me try again. 

What you don't see in the photo: some colors are mat and others are shiny.
That's the special effect ;-)

Friday Five and the pictures of this week

(decoration in a shop, it's not my home)

Good morning,
it's friday again and time to join with Tanya's Willy Nilly Friday Five
and All Seasons


Found this plant in the scrap container at the cemetery.
Never seen before.
Any idea, what it is?


The last flowers at my stairs.
Still not Christmas decoration.
But I could not decide to put them away.


First snow we had on sunday.


Christmas market...


My way home from downtown

Have a cozy weekend
