drawing challenge: Metamorphosis

Unsere Kinder, die an einem Weiher im Wald spielen, das war letzten Sonntag, als sich der Frühling schon mal zeigen wollte...
Die beiden Schilfblätter sind von dort. Ich habe sie mit ein wenig goldener Wasserfarbe bepinselt ebenso wie diese Reiskörner.
Ariane hat uns das Thema Metamorphosis in dieser Woche mit auf den Weg gegeben.

Danke für Euren Besuch hier und dort und habt ein schönes Wochenende!

Our children playing at a pond in the forest, last Sunday, when Spring was just showing...
I took the reed along and painted it with some gouache in gold just like the grains of rice.

Ariane came up with the theme Metamorphosis - enjoy and have a nice weekend!


  1. hmm, liebe Stefanie,
    gold! I haven't got any idea that this are grains of rice, they became so vivid in an animally way. Could be chrysalises. The reed is so archaic, no? And in the next time Spring will arrive, further, and nature goes on with their metamorphosis. Thank you for yours!
    Love, Ariane. Rose

  2. I love the idea of golden seeds or grains - appreciation to the nature and new growth of spring! And it is lovely to see spring photos - it is still white winter over here..

  3. As I view and read these posts for this challenge I am mindful of threads. That join. Link. Invisible yet tangible evidence that shows in our posts. Tammie Lee and you...seeds; Ariane and; for the rest (and including Tammie Lee and Ariane) An appreciation and sharing. I have not viewed all of the links yet but expect to find more tangible evidence of links. *happy smiles* N, x

  4. And YES! Stefanie, the very next post I went to was 'Lucia' who did a little folded book, and I have been working for days on a little folded book exactly the page that gives 8 finished pages. I even made a plastic template to help with the design of it. I'll do a post of this perhaps in a day or two so you can see what I mean. I had to jump right back to tell you about this. Another example of tangible evidence we are linked to one another...N, x

  5. Hooray for spring! Love the little gold seeds. So many people I know have been buying gold and silver paint lately. Maybe I need to go buy some and have some fun. :D Big hugs Stefanie.

  6. i so enjoy what you did with the seeds
    it is as though you brought their inner magic to the surface

  7. Das Gold auf den Körnern und in deiner Hand - ein tiefes Bild. Wahrscheinlich können wir viel mehr vergolden, als wir denken. Oder goldene Momente entdecken, wenn wir richtig hinsehen, solche wie sie das Bild mit deinen Kindern einfängt.
    Liebe Grüße von Lucia

  8. gold dust on your hand... it's going to be a swell season. n♥


Danke - thank you - merci bien!
