Rains and PPF

We all need a hug these days, this is for you.

For Rains "in like a lamb, out like a lion" challenge I choose to see two sides of the same water.

Gannets. .A favorite bird I happened to "pass by" in my files.

The spring has arrived even if we still has cold mornings.

My test pad for painting  also suitable for Rains this week I think as there are flowers, trees, ghosts and even a spider. The size of the pad is A4
This is a pad I designed for SCANIA heavy truck drivers when I was still working at the design department. I was allowed to bring it home with me when I was retired.

    Greeting Elke

  2. I love your hugging swan ... you are right we could all use a hug in a time when distance between two people is the rule. Your spring pictures are lovely and your test pad ... well what can I say. They obviously thought highly of you and your art is always exemplary. Stay safe my friend ...
