i found this image of a pinboard i made sometime ago 
as an insparation for a series of linocuts
about gardening, memories and flowers
the images are now in a box
for when i have more time....

today for the first time i had the idea
i'm going to make it
i will get this work (for my work!) done 
before the holiday begins
and that feels so nice!
after that there will be time ;^))

outside a blackbird sings
despite the tough rain showers
i look at that image
and think of these words:


'If I cannot do great things,
I can do small things
in a great way.'
                                          Martin Luther King Jr.

garden party & N E W T H E M E !!






the snails have a GARDEN PARTY in our garden
which was the theme 
of the last drawing challenge/art challenge
hosted by sweet TAMMIE

i really would like to join the art challenge again
that's why i force myself to be the host  ;^))

the coming weeks 
will be even more filled with work
because i need to finish much 
before the summer holidays
and than there are the headaches 
(probably related to work ;^))
so it's sometimes difficult to focus

in between i work in the garden
enjoying the incredible blue 
of the lupins and delphiniums

so, hence the theme for the 196th challenge of JUNE 11-12:



how it works:
if you want to join, leave a comment saying you are in
the following weekend the 'drawings' are shown on the blogs of the participants
and the host links to them all

S K Y

i had plans, as always
but to little time, as always....

after days of hard work with my father
- we have rebuilt our attic -
it was time to paint those new walls
- instead of making a drawing for this art challenge-
in a soft grey like the sky outside
and
besides that
i painted the walls of the room of youngest
in a beautiful skyblue

at the end of the day
the sun broke through
the sky!!
