You want to sail to the sunset but there are no door

I painted this with acrylics on a TILE 15x15cm a few years ago

Butterflies notice it and creats a door for you
 
Diecut butterfiles on the tile and digital writing

You catch your sailingboat and takes off

One of the first pieces I painted on CARBon paper, A4

Finally Sailing to the sunset


Here comes the sun!

Tag Tuesday wants sun and Rain wants the first thing I see wake up. That is the blinds.

Faces or what

 Click image to enlarge!
Monica

This is a self portrait I drew when I was 14 years old. I can still remember sitting in front of a mirror to create it. Was not easy to do. Finding the right angle every time I looked into the mirror. 
I was probably not very pleased with it as I can read a note in the upper corner. 
It sais: Refinement by Marie. 
Marie was my mother. So she adjusted it a bit. 💖

HELP!

Acrylics on paper 36x24cm
Last day of  having access to the the storage room in the Art Gallery I created this one. When fixing the image in Photoshop I noticed the siluette. If noone else, at least Andrea will see it. 
😇😁

Unknown door

 Click image to enlarge!
Do you dare walk trough?? 

Step out....

..into the forest


First image is one of my photos that I worked on digitally!
Last one is a landscape painted with ink. (worked at the arthall´s open shop this week) 
Middle image is a combination of the two. 

It is HOT over here today, will be tomorrow too :(  
In many parts of Europe there are fires burning. So I hope tomorrow is the last day of heat where I live. There are already warnings of fire alert. 

Take care everyone. There are fires in many places.
