I take the TROPICS into 
the Castle at the Eisenbach, because Winter is long and my feet are cold. 

Looking for green!

In my invite for this Art Challenge I've told you, 
that I wanna draw again. So I've drawn with pencil and liked it a lot!

Then I've added that green circle of clear film and transformed 
it into a telescope, because I am in awe for the researchers of yesteryears: 
all those plant hunters! and travelers in former days, especially 

the female researchers! 
great artists like Maria Sibylla Merian or woman writer like 
Ida Hahn-Hahn, who traveled in the early 18th or 19th century.

And even today there are brave women, 
who leave their comfort zone to live passion, freedom and love.
Like my dear friend Azalee, my sister of the River Nile, who is now
partner of a newly opened up gallery of art in Khartoum, Sudan. 
{Congrats, Dear!}

Wanna see more of TROPICS? 
Then, please travel to these artist:

UPDATE: and Pieterbie!

Thank you for playing!

Palm house and an invite for the next AC (#205)

"Guten Tag, können Sie mir bitte sagen,
wie kalt es draußen ist?"
– "Schätzungsweise -2°C.  Jedenfalls so kalt, 
dass hier drinnen im Tropenhaus 
mein Objektiv beschlägt"

"Hello, could you please tell me, 
what temperature it is outside?"
– "About -2°C. According to my steamed over lens 
anyway here inside the palm house.

Es dauerte etwas bis ich realisierte, 
dass die Bewässerungsanlage lief, weil ich überhaupt nicht nass wurde. 
Wassertropfen, die auf große Blätter rauschen... 
das ist Musik in meinen Ohren!

It takes a while since I recognized, 
that the irrigation systems ran, because I stayed dry. 
Water drops, which are rushing on big leaves... 
that's music to my ears!

You can find more photo of my visit in the palm house here.

Back in the Castle at the Eisenbach, I fell asleep. 
Sometimes taking pictures can be very exhausting! 
I wanna try to draw instead, next time...

We nestled in mother nature's bosom
(at Friday in the palm house)
  Bee and me

because life sometimes runs out-of-balance

one need a soft pillow
(all the more when ill)

(or simply on Sundays)

Stefanie Seltner is our host 
for this Art Challenge No. 204 
and her theme is PILLOW. 

Sorry, I am late... 
an ill daughter and life... oh, you know. 
I have drawn my PILLOWs with ink and colored them 
with oil pastels. For more PILLOWs, please go to 
Stefanie's cosy place. Thank you for hosting, Süße!
Wish you a cosy day!

Thank you for your visit ✨

Love, Ariane. Rose
