dc #183: THRESHOLD




Black/white is a strong contrast


and is plane/domed, too.





A longed-for destination: I told you the story about this ticket here, a few years ago.
And yes, I still haven't been to Italy and still longing, since now. But next year, I wanna get over the threshold of less money and more family commitments. I dream of a trip to Naples, to Ischia, wanna look at the Mount Vesuvius, visit Pompeii, Capri, the Amalfi coast after my 50th birthday, next year in 2016!




So, as an approaching I have drawn this view on the Mount Vesuvius over the Bay of Naples.
A volcano is a threshold, too, and it's the theme of Tammie Lee for this 183rd drawing challenge.
I have implemented this theme with lead pencil, coal and red calk on paper, 30x20cm.




Please, keeping an eye out after other thresholds at Tammie's place!

Thank you for hosting us, Dear!

And thank you for your visit! I wish you a nice and happy day!





today: No. 183 THRESHOLD
at Tammie Lee on the 5th + 6th of December

  4. Hello rosy girl. I'm hopelessly late reading and commenting because I've just arrived in England. I'm also in love with this painting. So beautiful and simple, yet so complex in meaning and feeling. I know you'll fulfill your Italian and family wishes. Biggest hugs.
