November. Cold and grey.
Winter awaits us and the countryside changed.
Rich green fields turned into bare and cold clay land.
The change of season captured in this photo.
|De mangels gerooid.
De klei naakt. Koud. Omgeploegd.
Wachtend op winter
harvested. Cold, nude clay land
The photo was taken by my friend Lena Schreijenberg
I submit this haiku to Recuerda Mi Corazon where our lovely hostess Rebecca brings us all together to share a haiku on Friday: Haiku my Heart.
The temperatures dropping and the weather changing may have been the reason for me to pick that image of an icy wolf to use on my art journal pages. A wolf howling at… what? The moon? It’s a strong image isn’t it?
The Chronicles of Marit 2019 – Week 43
A few weeks ago, I joined a ‘swap’. I send a ‘surprise envelope’ to a fellow artist, filled with all kinds of ‘things’ like paper scraps, images and cut out sentences/words. I received a surprise envelope in return. You had to create ‘something’ using the stuff you had been sent. A woman named Martha send me “all sorts of green”, this is what I found when I opened the envelope:
I like greens but still I found it rather difficult to create with the paper and images that someone else picked…
I turned the papers and cut-out pictures to see what was on the back and there was an extra surprise: I found my name on the back! I decided to use the stuff on a Chronicles spread, cutting most of the images – using only parts as some sort of border – and I even cut up the sentences, turning the words into a found poem.

This spread doesn’t feel ‘like me’ but it’s an OK spread. And after all: it is good to be challenged from time to time, to step out of your comfort zone and do something different than the usual… so thank you Martha, for sending me this stuff!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today, have a nice weekend.
