"Flirting with the moon" is a new drawing inspired by a clown: Katharina.
And I collected some older paintings and drawings for this challenge.

I am not a fan of the circus. It does not fascinate me to watch animals doing silly things.
I remember when ever I went to a circus I was impressed by the stage building, the stairs and technic and all the people.

Helen is our hostess this week with some great pictures, please have a look for the other participants and
have a nice weekend!

drawing challenge

playing cards

In this box I have my Tarot cards. The box was a gift from the artist Saskia Hinrichs, who I met during my studies in France. But this is another story.

Ok, these cards are not really special but they do their job now for around 25 years.

This book does its job, too. Both had been a present from my father. My mother was wondering about this kind of present but this is another story, too.

By the way, my birthday number, the power. I should remind myself sometimes. Another story again.



I took three cards, one for the past, one for the present and one for the future. 
My question: how to act to do a good challenge today:
The sun, the judgement and the moon.

We went out to take some pictures at the "Kunstgrenze" (frontier of art), an installation of the artist Johannes Dörflinger. 
He used symbols of the Tarot. It is the frontier in Konstanz/Kreuzlingen between Germany and Switzerland.

Ariane is our hostess this week, please have a look at her beautiful blog for more players.


Have a nice weekend!




This picture has nothing to do with the story above: 
There was a wedding party and here you see the bride throwing her flowers.

fine

Oups - I´m sorry I did not want anyone to worry:
My family and me are quite fine, just some strange and chaotic holidays (I am not sure if you really should call it "holidays") and a mild concussion.
Der alltägliche Wahnsinn also, nichts weiter.
So nice you feel with us, thank you!!!


Und Maggie, über Deinen ersten Kommentar habe ich besonders gelacht!
