my dear blog readers and followers,
I am so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.
(Anne of Green Gables)
My October abstract trees water-color painting..
and welcome to the new challenge by More than Words.
this month on the blog from More Than Words, the challenge is " Leisure and Splatters"
Leisure: I love this free time, the time of freedom and peace, holidays, breathing space, time to create,
time to travel, time for sport and time for family and friends, time to read a book and, and, and...
Splatters: I added for the creative challenge lots of splatters on my background with
a brush and Lindys spray.
How often do we travel to other countries, without really knowing our country
where we live. Honestly, do you know all the cities in your country?
Did you visit every city and did the tourist program? Now Jörgen my husband and I
started this adventure and new leisure years ago. We were positively surprised.
What a BEAUTY our country is.
This photo is from the city Utrecht here in The Netherlands.
The St. Martin`s Cathedral Utrecht or Dom Church, is a Gothic church from 1580.
It was once the Netherlands largest church, but the nave collapsed in a storm 1674
and has never been rebuilt. Leaving the tower ( photo on the layout) isolated
from the east end. The remains of the St. Martin`s today, are the choir, the transept
and the Dom Tower. The central nave of the Cathedral which collapsed in the storm of 1674
is now a square with large trees, the Domplein (nl). Stones in various colors indicate
in the pavement the original outline of the church.
An old postcard photo in black and white pencil drawing. St Martin`s Cathedral.
No name from the artist.
Our leisure activity is also our romantic day without our children..
I took the main photo (layout) on a sunny day. This photo above shows the right colors.
Violet-purple, orange, and yellow-green.
