12 of 12 January 2011

This is a project initiated by Chad Darnell and I am taking part today. To take part you have to take 12 photos of the 12th of the month and publish them with a link to Chad Darnell. Here are my 12 photos of January 12, 2011. Hope you will enjoy my photos and stories.

So heißt ein Projekt ins Leben gerufen von Chad Darnell und ich mache heute mit. Das heißt, man macht am 12. des Monats 12 Fotos und veröffentlicht sie mit einem link zu Chad Darnell. Hier sind meine 12 Fotos vom 12. January 2011. Ich hoffe, euch gefallen meine Fotos und Geschichten dazu.

I went outside this morning to get a few branches of our magnolia tree. Can't wait for spring so I thought I speed it up a bit. These branches will hopefully show me some wonderful flowers soon.

This is my "moleskin" that I am submitting tomorrow for a project called "the Sketchbook Project 20112. If you are interested in finding out more about it go here.
One of the inside pages of what I did to my book. I am a painter of watercolours and for a few months a year I paint on eggs. This is what I wanted to show in my moleskin. I hope I succeeded and that the people will like it.

Another page of my moleskin. This one a bit of sumi-e painting. My personal page of the project you can view here if you like.

We have taken down all the Christmas ornaments last weekend but this big star I decided is going to stay at the window next to my desk. I like stars have I ever told you?

Now this is my personal calender/address/appointments/dates etc. book. I don't believe in any of these electronical gadgets to keep me informed. I am old-fashioned and I write down everything that is important to me by hand. It is not a small book believe me.

This week I started the painting lessons again. Today we did this. You can't really see it from the photo but it is two paintings. the circle is in fact a whole and the bouquet is on another page.

Some more ornaments from the Christmas tree which will move into the Easter bouquet to keep the eggs company.

I got a new lamp for my desk. I don't know how I worked before I had this. It sure makes a big difference.

This actually belongs to my son. He adores the sweets inside and so he got this for Christmas.
