The challenge theme this week, choosen by the beautiful poetic Demie
wasn't an easy one.
I love riding through the country side but what i see there (quite beautiful but perhaps a bit dull to show here)
Once i got the idea though, of making a collage of a photo
and a painting i had such fun , i also applied the idea on some older
work (the ones below)
For more roadshow attractions please take a look at myParaphernalia,
Demie's lovely blog.

At these long winter evenings i love to sit on the couch by the open fire
with a sketchbook on my lap.
Listening to cd's or tv, dreaming away looking into the flames, images come and go
and some find their way onto the paper.
Some simply stay there,
some have the potential to become a gouache or a painting or something else...
This small scribbling became a gouache.

We were invited for tea or coffee by the hospitable Ariane .
Thank you dear.
I love my cup of coffee, strong and hot, usually with cream
but i also like a black expresso.
Soothing and comforting but also
stimulating and reviving, coffee does it allright.
I like its color, love the smell.
I discovered i can draw with coffee even paint.
And there is a cup for every occasion.

The same night i published the previous post, i finished 'the two coins'
Later, reading your encouraging comments i was glad i didn't change or add too much .
Just some red to the girl's dress, she is a passioned girl after all.
I suppose the muse may be closer than i know ;)
Today in the garden hope only grew, some things are moving there,
slowly but so wonderful.
I even discovered a 'peace' stick on a bed of moss.
And the ghost of the daffodil already roams around, still very thin and airy.

January is my least favorite month, each year moving the christmas tree
outside i feel like also my inspiration leaves me.
Not my energy, but my muse seems to take a long walk, vacation or
she is just tired and goes to sleep for awhile.
Last week i was very lucky to receive a beautiful package from Rachel,
among it's lovely contents were two chocolate 'golden' coins.
Would it be possible to seduce the muse,
would she return faster and understand the magic of these coins....
