Life in the ocean

A collection of my Ocean art using different techniques.

I might be cheating a little for ArtJournal. But I think even in the oceanes there are springtime. 
Ocean life also have to spawn new life and it certaĂ­nly have "spring colors". 

Thanks for visiting!

Country life
For TAD this week. This is a page from my late grandmothers album that I have. Her name was Ingrid. 
On the first image you can see it was taken at Hulta in 1921. Even a few years before my father was born. The second image shows Viktor Glad, He was my grandmothers father, so, my greatgreat grand father. If I got that right. 😄

T-day, Tag and Tad

 Click image to enlarge!
For  Tag Tuesday, Faces
Painted the tag and added my bookmark face. The sweet countrygirl from long ago. 

TAD wants to see Unicorns today. There are a few in the spread but I think the creature from the NeverEnding Story steels the show. It just appeared at the bottom of the page.
😇

The umbrellas! 
Had some fun with stencils and die-cuts. I had fun with it!

In to the Black hole
Mute swans, digital art from my photo. 


And a final Thank You to Eva and Kristin on PPF 💝

Art Journal    Spring


Hovmanstorp!  A farm with a barn!

I was out walking the other day. It was quite a long distance I had not walked before, but travelled biking. As I thought I would need a break somewhere I brought a sketch book. 
I have only made a few "free hand" sketches before. This day I learned that everything don´t have to be perfect in size and distance. Quit hard for me that worked on designing trucks in my working days. When every 0,1 mm counted. 
😁

I hope everyone out there is OK. Take care, much needed these days.

TAD:s promt dragons this week. Photoart! 
I will not even try to explain it. :) But both Barbie and the dragon is in my possession. 


Golden adventure!
Watercolor paper A3 different styles. Acrylics and tempera used. 

Below is my tribute to Ukraine. It is spring no matter what. 

The world is crying for all of us.  Thaw!

Peace dove! Will it be able to fly??
Watercolorpaper A3, painted black. Added an earlier paper with green pattern in the center. The paper and the straws are glued on. The bird and flowers are just placed out for the photo. 

IMO the Red Russian dragon should go back into is cave!

Take care!
