Look back through 2015 {mit Schlussakkord}

some of mourning, some of fun
two bones broken of arm from son,
goodbyes and hellos, art and heart
work, travel, waiting
for
next Springtime
we'll move to our dried Castle at the Eisenbach and
twins will have their first exams

I try to calm down in this time of in between the years
clean my body and mind, the Lionpalace

Under a good star
(it was so nice to see some stars raise at different places,
a kind of moon-feeling of being connected) and then Christmas under the full moon!
My dear friend Azalee is here for celebration, together with family.
See you beyond!

I wish you a Happy New Year 2016!
full of LOVE! imagine PEACE!

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
