  5. Thanks Nelleke, Elena Linda and Elisabeth ! This topic is very interesting though I was afraid to slip into cliche.......
    but I was always attracted by old mysterious houses and I make all kind of theories about their past and present residents .... and I love to visit such houses if I get a chance ....

  9. Lovely texuters - on the surface, underneath... lives leave textures behind in houses, in the lives of others - a cliche is only something we revisit so often it loses its meaning - if we don't look under the surface. Love this piece. It has echoes.

  12. Love the quote (new to me though I'm wild about Wilde), love the image with all its mysteries, textures, atmospheres... & unexpected artichokes!

  13. Well he also wrote "to lose one wife is bad luck, to lose two is downright carelessness..." or soemthing like that. Your image to me is of ghosts, but they are what we see in our minds, and perhaps sometimes with-out.

  15. @ curious A: oh, yes, our good wilde Wilde! He wrote so many great things.. oh yes , to make it a little bit mysterious I put there some perennial-thistle..:D

    @ andrew: yeah, it is really sloppy....

    and the ghosts, you might be right. (But sometimes it is better do not see what is in our minds)

    @ illustration poetry: I hope so!! :)

  16. hi im back, as i promised you, hihi :D
    goodmorning/goodnite to you both L&L,

    I have been wanting to visit such mysterious or abandoned houses since i was a child, but have yet to see it.
    Is there any chance that i could plan a trip and request you specifically as my tour guide?
    I dont care about the ghosts, i think we are all to each other.
    Thats why the true mystery is not the invisible, we haunt each other in this world.
