dc: JAPAN



 For a long time now I am interested in 



 
the vanitas... the becoming and passing away 
(f. i. you can see some analogue photo stills here which I made in ~ 2005)

Many years earlier my later husband J and I joined a Japanese tea ceremony.
At that we even learned about to admire
茶碗 ... the tea cup: we held it in our hands, lifted it at eye level and turned it to look at carefully from every angle, felt the surface, the material, praised the fine colour.

Some days after the ceremony J went to a pottery and
order some tea cups according to his instructions:




My tea cup is battered now but I still love it! I coloured the tracks simple in gold.
Maybe after an idea of 侘寂 ... Wabi-sabi, the aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection...



it makes me humbly and grateful

joyful and happy
to join you at this drawing challenge again after a long break. Our host is Nadine, my sweet Nadeschda, and her theme is JAPAN.

Please visit her fabulous place for more!
Wish you a fine weekend!



we are still moving...

Rose's break






Es ist laut, staubig und heiß am Eisenbach. 
Die Burg wird renoviert, Presslufthammer von 7-17h, Staubwolken.

It is loud, dusty and hot at the Eisenbach.
The castle is renovated, jackhammer from 7-5h, dustclouds.






 In den Eisenbach wird Sauerstoff gegeben, damit die Fische überleben. Die Blumen blühen und duften, die Hummeln summen weiter, einfach weiter

Into the Eisenbach is added oxygen, thereby the fishes survive. The flowers blossoms and smells, the bumblebees buzzes on, on and on





immer weiter... on and on



 und bald kann ich von dort aus auch die Aussicht genießen

and soon I can enjoy the sight from that place 



(er hier ist ein Handwerker, der unsere neue Wohnung mit Sprossenfenstern versehen hat.

he is a workman who has provided the new flat with muntin windows)




Derweil packe ich meine Kostbarkeiten ein, räume, putze... usw.
und freue mich auf das Auspacken

While I pack my precious objects, vacate, clean... aso 
and look forward for unpacking.

:-)




Hier lege ich nun eine Pause ein 

Here I have a break 

(probably until the next drawing challenge at Nadine's, at the 30th + 31th of August)

dc: What's That?

What's That?
Is it a squirrel-angel over the roof?

What's That?



* solving down at the end of this post





After all:
My favorite camera lens is broken
so I have photographed the moon with my telephoto lens. 
All other photos here I have taken by my new cellphone (lay in my drawer for weeks, but...)
even for this week's drawing challenge (and as of late I use Instagram...
hello! I have met there many friends :-)


Please come to Carole's to find more posts for her theme What's That?


P.S. Do you agree with a little dc summer break, too?
Dear Nadeschda mentioned it and I think I need a break, 'cause of the move.

Love, Ariane.

dc: Inner Eye



It happens while movement
 (floating with e.g. this music)




when stay, too
daydreaming...








with closed eyes
meditating






 My mother is clairvoyant
her mother was, too
as even me 
(it is so easy for me to go with my inner eye, 
it has been years approaching the here and now and I am glad having both now)







 and I have got my attentive eye on my daughters (is it a female phenomenon?)
The eldest, right,  has painted faces with three eyes as a four-old girl. For her simply normal. The youngest produced this monocle, left, with place for the nose... and the third eye.







For me the inner eye is the third eye, the same as the 6th chakra. 
This chakra is located in the head, it opens on the forehead between the eyebrows. It corresponds to the colours violet, indigo or deep blue.

So, I have given the porcelain figure a violet bindi, show you surreal works of my daughters and I rouged three eyes here and added an indigo-coloured blossom for this week's drawing challenge theme Inner Eye of our host Susan. Please find her colourful place to enjoy the turn out of more inner sights.
