Taking it easy ...

Another inky face and journalpage this week. I still don't have time to start a new painting, but I'm happy I manage at least to do some journaling :-)

Here's my inky weirdo:

I love making these weird faces and then looking for a well-fitting quote to go with them. When I have enough of these, I might make them into a little booklet. Or maybe use them for a calendar :-)

I also made a new journal page. I have a few of these journals that I always use for my leftover paint whenever I'm doing something. So every now and then I go through them and see if something jumps out at me. And in this following page I saw an image of a mother holding a child. And it reminded me of the many many children that are still without their mother or father after being separated at the border in the US, so I painted it and added a quote from "Les Miserables" that I felt fitted the situation quite well. 

And that's it for this week! Well, actually for the rest of the summer, because I've decided to take a break from blogging to spend some more time with my family and outdoors. Take a digital break ;-) I'll be linking this to Paint Party Friday tomorrow, where quite a lot of people seem to be taking a summer break.

Just some funnies and thinkies left. I had to include a whole bunch of Trumps visit to Britain and Belgium (ughh!). I'm not going into this, it's just too much, but jeeezzz, what a disgusting selfish shit he is. Excuse the language ...

Enjoy :-)

- Amen -

I hope all of you are enjoying some lazy free time, getting your batteries charged and your creative juices flowing. Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back somewhere in August.

Take care ♥ ♥ ♥

    Your second piece however,it so stunning and poignant and yes,absolutely represents those at the border- just makes my heart sick...

    I am ever so happy for you that you have chosen to take time off! because of DT commitments I can not "( But I am thinking of you ,tending your garden and lazing in the shade...and maybe doing a bit of painting!

    Sending huge hugs to you dear friend with lots of love!

    oh, and never worry about the language you use when referring to the big were being nice compared to my feelings!

    Love the flying pig as well! LMAO
