‘It rose from its lake of milk in a mystic light of its own – in a greasy, buttery glow…’





Moozle continues with scrapbooking, stamping and cardmaking. She made a photo album for her older sister’s baby but I forgot to get a photo – she gets ideas from Jennifer McGuire Ink & Sweet Bio Design. Today she made a whole stack of various cards – birthday, Christmas, Get Well etc. and yesterday she made this desk calendar:



Picture Study

Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840) is the artist we’re currently studying. I didn’t know anything about him and would have overlooked his work completely but I saw he was on the Ambleside Online artist’s rotation and so decided to have a look at his work. A German Romantic artist, his work is atmospheric and moody, and we’re enjoying spending some time studying his lovely art. We’re doing some of the pictures AO recommends and adding in others we like:


 Wanderer Above the Mist, 1817-1818


 Cross in the Mountains, (detail) 1808


The Monk by the Sea, 1808-1810
On Board a Sailing Ship, 1819
Woman at the Window, 1822
Chalk Cliffs on Rugen, 1818-19
Morning, 1820-21

I'm not sure if I already extended my congrats elsewhere (new mama brain!), but I have been thinking of you and am so pleased about the sweet bundle that joined your family. You must all be thrilled.The notebooks are just so wonderful. The science diagrams and the experiment write-ups are particularly helpful to me. I am so grateful that you share!
