In 2015 I want to do one photo walk a month to get better in using my DSLR camera in manual mode and broaden my mind. Last Sunday I just started to walk without a concrete theme in mind. I passed several motives, but it wasn’t till I saw this beautiful green wall, when I knew my theme: pattern. I did this theme already in 2012, but it was one of my first and that shows. Therefore it was time to give it another chance.
The weather was beautiful although icy cold, but the blue sky and warm sunshine made the patterns look even more wonderful and sunny. I loved especially the colorful window inside the old Zionskirche at Prenzlauer Berg and the old, broken walls.
Wednesday was one of those days when everything was somehow grey and went wrong. To have at least something beautiful at the end of the day, I made a cover for my new blog notebook. For that I used one of my new washi tapes. When I saw the new collection of tapes, I just couldn’t resist. I had to have them. They are so pretty!
On Friday we went to the funeral of my boyfriend’s uncle. It was so sad and rained through the entire ceremony. As if the sky was crying too. After these emotional days and eight hours on the road in our car, I had to do something creative, to relax and get my balance back. It ended with a lot of cleaned brushes. I painted two hooks with nut brown stain for our bathroom. They are not finished yet, because they will get little embellishments in light colors.
Moreover I had finally an idea for the three canvases, that waited to be painted for some time now. First I jotted some ideas down on paper, before I chose two designs. The third is still undecided. They will get little gold details later, when I have the time again. Tomorrow and Wednesday I will be away on a business trip. Maybe I have some photos to share with you afterwards.
have a good start into the new week
