God so loved the world that He sent us his only son.
As the shops are closed anyhow why not get some jewelry for presents straight f rom the woods.
Once we were playing with watercolour blots with my grandchild. First we painted some blots with different colors and then drew with inkpencil on them. It was fun!
Above is hippo by six year old grandchild.
At the shore. Yellow of the dried long grass, grey of the trees. The lake is not yet frozen.
At fall one can find beautiful colors on the cliffs. The colors remind me of the rug my grandmother has made and designed (part of it below).
My grandmother had no schooling at textile craft but made great curtains and rugs. Also clothes.
We can still make the colors by ourselves. One can use mere pigments and egg, oil and water as emulsion. That is called tempera painting.
The base for tempera can be wood, fabric or almost anything.First image I have painted on self-made chalk base and the second (above) on Lanavanguard, polypropylen -paper.
I once got inspiration from an article at an artist magazine Just add egg!
In the forest you should keep your eyes open, you can find works of art on the ground.
