ALIVE WITHOUT BREATH ...

As cold as death; 
Never thirsty, ever drinking, 
All in mail never clinking.”

This year I've plant seedpods of Naturtium and I was so pleased that their comes a lot of green leaf immediately. But then nothing happened for a long time. Well, I thought, they were old seeds, they will not bloom any more. But what a surprise, since two weeks my basket becomes more and more blossoms in a lovely orange, yellow and red orange colors. I'm thrilled and must catch their beauty on paper.

 This year in June I've lost my very dear Soul Sister Elle van der Wagt. She was a very sweet soul, immensely talented photographer, humorous and big-hearted dear friend and much more to me. I miss her very much and so I've decided to paint her portrait. First I've done an akurat sketch to step into the mood and now I've done a very loose study of her beautiful eyes.

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued,

may alight upon you.

No artist could enjoy a waterlilies pond without thinking on Monet's famous paintings and his gorgeous garden in Giverney. And so I do, every time I discovered a waterlilies pond I'm inspired and thrilled. These gorgeous variations of blue, green and light. This painting isn't more than a study but I love the interaction of Viridian and Indigo Blue on the water.

We've a really beautiful Otter Center nearby.  The Hankensbüttel Otter Centre is a nature experience centre in Hankensbüttel, in the German district of Gifhorn, that is laid out in 6 hectares (15 acres) of open land by a lake known as the Isenhagener See. The Otter Centre showcases the European otter which is a species threatened by extinction, as well as several related species of marten, in a natural environment. The centre is run by the Aktion Fischotterschutz ("Otter Conservation Project"), a state-recognised nature conservation organisation, and is a popular tourist and visitor destination on the southern edge of the Lüneburg Heath. The otters are kept in large, enclosures with a nearly natural habitat of streams and ponds. In addition there are various species of marten, nearest cousins of the otter, in the enclosures. The presentation of several species in this way is unique.

For me it's a fantastic opportunity to observe and photograph otters, badgers, stoats, polecats, beech martens and pine martens (the only pine marten enclosure in Europe).

I love to paint this special house (located in France) and I've painted it often, each version is so different and I can see my own development in watercolor - and the longing for France, of course. The prompt for Day 2 #WorldWatercolorMonth is "in the shade" and I think it could be fit.

Foxgloves are really strong and free, they are wandering on their own path and with their own plan
through our garden  - and terrace. And no wind and heavy rain can bow them.
