Theme ; Challenge TakeAWord / BLACK & WHITE
(with a tiny touch sepia-color)


I always remember my early school years when I was taught by nuns.
The nuns: the Sisters of Charity Congregation of Carolus-Borremeus,
remained until 1974 in my hometown and I always wonder how sister Helène was taking in her life.

The fun part of this story is that I began a search for the congregation today and found the website so it still excist!! Isn't that remarkable?
I had to leave a comment in their guestbook!
Fingers crossed if they will answer :-)

nou Rian
het werk dat jij er van maakte
is mooier dan hun website
aan de andere kant , als die strenge nonnetjes uit jou school tijd , nu op het internet zitten , zullen ze toch niet zo streng meer zijn , of toch ?

I hope they answer as well. A beautiful image. The nuns that taught me...well I know one is still alive, but no habits any more.

Special memories for you Rian, you have created such a treasure here and I hope you get a response!

I love the steps you take to complete your artworks Rian! You are so meticulous and use such a variety of effects, I love it!

I used to think you were bonkers, before I learned how to use Photoshop more! Now I understand - I really do!

That photo of the dog was taken with my phone! But I really really want a camera so I can practise photography properly. =)
