Sky for the Trees

I look off to the left and I see the beautiful blue Bavarian sky through the tall pines.  
I  look off to the right and see a few deer running by.
Have a wonderful weekend!

I am sharing this shot with Skywatch and Himmelsk.

Seeing Double

A watercolor inspired by the silent movie actress Louise Brooks.

The assignment at Daily Paintworks is to use the same reference and
create two different paintings.  Neither of these little pieces look like Louise
but I changed the format on the second one and also gave her an asian looking
eyeform.  I am working on number three and four right now.  One with a closed
eye and the other with a smiling mouth.  This is actually a fun assignment.
Go on over to Daily Paintworks to view more interesting Doubles or better yet...
submit your Double before Saturday.

Happy Painting!

I am also sharing this with Paint Party Friday.

John, Paul, George or Ringo

I named him Ringo.  He can´t sing but he more than makes up for it with his looks.
What a beauty. This proves once and for all....don´t leave home without your camera. 
 Be it going  for a jog in the forest or even up the block to the market.  What a lucky shot.

This is a gold-green Ground Beetle, Carabus auratus and a member of the Carabidae family
which is a native to central and western Europe.  Thank you Dr. Africa Gómez, Biologist at the
Universtiy of Hull in England and her Bug Blog for filling me in on this information.

I am sharing this shot with I Heart Macro, Sunday Best and Macro Monday.

think it will be around for very you?

Have a nice Sunday.

Who Won II

A quick note to announce who won a few magazines and some
authentic German chocolate.  Stay tuned, as I will do this again
in the near future.  I have a lot of magazines to pass onto you.

I wish I could send all of you some tasty chocolate but I had to
limit it to three people at a time.  I´d appreciate it if you three
would please email me your postal addresses by Sunday 13 May
and let me know if you prefer Milk, Dark or White chocolate.

In the meantime, go visit these winner´s blogs for your artfix for today.
