Climbing the Magic Mountain

Hi Everybody!

This week has flown by again, and tomorrow it's Friday and time for the weekend and for Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin.
I have another page in my family journal to share today, using photos from my great Auntie Fanny and my grandparents. I used elements from me and Serif:

On Wednesday G and I went for a great meal at the local Chinese restaurant, where they do a wonderful buffet. I will show the pics of that another day. Afterwards we went to the Magic Mountain, also called Tiger and Turtle, a walkable sculpture from Heike Mutter and  Ulrich Genth. We looked at it recently from the bottom of the hill, and today was the day to walk over it. It was very exciting watching it get larger and larger as we climbed the path up the hill:

There were great views in all directions, of the harbour, the Rhine and the industries that are at home there, and we could see far across the Ruhr Valley:

Here I was getting scared of going up....

And then it was time:

Lots of love-locks:

The loop in the middle is just to look at:

This really was skywalking:

Hope you enjoyed your skywalker trip!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

Once you have tasted flight....

Hi Everybody!

My first piece today is a hybrid collage, made using elements from me, Mischief Circus and Serif. The portrait of Leonardo and the Vitruvian man were stamped and then digitalised. The quote from Leonardo is one of my all time faves:

And I have an A3 doodled quill done some weeks ago and lost under a pile of other stuff. I collaged it onto a gessoed and collaged background:

On Monday I woke up to this wonderful morning sky:

It was sunny but cold, so I was able to get out for a walk:

the daffodils are very hardy, but look rather straggly after the snow dumped on them in the days before:

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by
