AC #206: PIGGY BANK | time-out



For this 206th of Art Challenge dear Carole is our host {thank you, Dear!}

I have two of them: a birthday gift last year to safe money 
(my friends made a nicely start!) for a special trip to Italy and another for the whole family, 
which is a sweet present by my dear friend Azalee from the banks of the River Nile.



Sometimes a focus is needed to arrive the goal. 

Pastel pink flood at the bank. Pie in the sky. Oil crayon 15/20cm canvas covered board



 And hopefully, when time comes, a warm rain of money will flood the bank
(at the Castle of the Eisenbach) finally.



I /we still have to fight for the reparation because of the fire two years ago.
Still working on our Castle at the Eisenbach... new curtains, new lamps, new color on the walls
(maybe F&B Parma Gray for the kitchen, in contrast with warm wooden floor)... a.s.o.




I have done 201 themes of these Art Challenge... former Drawing Challenge, today. 
{Thanks again to initiator Elisabeth Bucht aka Garnapa in January 2011!}

It was really a challenge to me and I can still remember my trembling hands when posting
the very first one – and the following. It was really a task and a joy and it turns out as a
true therapy for my inner artist! I love, that there is no winner but all of us! 

I got to know new friends through the Drawing Challenges and met (and will meet!)
them in real life. It was so very familiar through our wonderful art
and the our lovely comments, true LOVE!

It has been a honor to organize most of them with your support, dear friends! 
Thank you from the bottom of my heart! But now, with a heavy heart, 
I have to take a time-out here at Rose and the Art Challenge.
To whom I can pass the relay?

There are other project I wanna focus on and
we will see us further on at IG and FB 
for a quick glimpse...
So long!
LOVE, Ariane.
