Sommerzeit/ Summertime

Hallo ihr Lieben,
Da ich nun viel Zeit habe, hab ich das nächste Projekt in Angriff genommen.
Ich bemale eine Holzkiste mit Landschaftsbildern.
Was ihr hier seht ist der Deckel mit dem Bild einer norddeutschen Kate.
Ein paar großartige Tipps für das Malen mit Acryl habe ich aus dem tollen Buch "Charming Village Scenes You Can Paint" von der großartigen Catherine Holman.
Ihr solltet euch ihre tollen Bilder auf ihrem Blog ansehen.
Morgen werde ich mit dem unteren Teil der Kiste anfangen.
Euch allen wünsch ich einen schönen Tag.
Hello my friends,
since I have plenty of time, I started my next project.
I started to paint a landscape on a wooden box. What you can see here is the top of the box, with a painting of a typical north-german cottage.
I got some very good advice for painting with acrylic colour from the wonderful book "Charming Village Scenes You Can Paint" by the gorgeous Catherine Holman.
You have to see her lovely paintings on her blog.
Tomorrow I will go on with the bottom of the box.
I wish you a great day.


  1. That's going to be a wonderful box Janine. I love the big black bird checking it out! Does he want to move in?

  2. Janine,
    I'm so glad that you are painting from my book! Your house looks great. I have some old pattern packets that I will be listing on eBay that I did years ago. A dear friend of mine was cleaning out her work space and gave them back to me. I will also have some of them on my blog. Have fun finishing your box and thanks for the link to my blog!

  3. Catherine Holman, what an amazingly talented artist ans she has a book out, wow! Thanks for sharing this. I may buy a copy if I can.
    Your house looks awesome. You have certainly created a warm home feeling! A big step attemping a home. All thoughs straight lines I run away from. So much respect for you.

    Sending a big SMILE:)

  4. Thank you all for your kind words.
    dear Julie- Ann, I guess you wpuld love the houses built by the austian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser.
    He didn´´t like straight lines too and he builed his houses round and curvy.
