August 2020 13@rts challenge

Hello 13@rts fans,

I am Heike from Heike`s AugenBlick and I am your August challenge host.

I created a moodboard with blue, grey, silver and brown shades.

August here in Europe is the time for the long school vacation. It is also the time for traveling,
relaxing and enjoying the seaside. Time for a bond-fire and a good glas of wine. Time for family and friends. Time for long conversations at dinner or BBQ time. The colors from the 
August moodboard mean all that to me.
But I was also inspired from the Netflix serie "Tschernobyl".
I did a little bit resarch about the nuclear reactor disaster. 
and I was kind of fascinated and at the same time shocked. The pictures have something timeless. The area is extensively swelled because there is still radioactivity. Knowing that there is something, that you can't see, but is a deadly threat to all living beings. 
Mother nature wants to cover up this catastrophe and  she overgrows everything that was left behind by the people.
I was 20 years old at the time and I must confess at the time it didn't impress me so much. 
But today...

I created a grunge style scrapbook page with a photo from this area.
The photo is from google free photo images.
I want to express my feelings about what I have seen with my art. And the quote below  has been an additional inspiration for me, too.

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes.
Art is knowing which ones to keep.
