Here is my take on it

Why look so far if the good is so close by? Wilhelm would never understand why his son Heinrich went to America. Being a tram conductor wasn’t a shabby life! At least Karl was still with him.

Their Names: Wilhelm – grandfather to Elizabeth and Karl – Elizabeth’s Uncle

played with Derwent Inktense Blocks and Liquitex Acrylic Inks

And here is the photo for you:

Here is how it works if you want to play along:

  • Vicki, Cat and I have made a one-year commitment to each other and picked twelve photos with Whatevers whom we will give a story.
  • Every month – if possible always on the 15th –  each of us will do a post with an individual story that goes along for us with the same photo.
  • If you want you can play along and we will have the photo for you – just right click on it to safe it to download and show us your version of The Whatevers.
  • There is no rules to the story itself- it can be funny, sad, uplifting, breathtaking- WHATEVER
  • There is no rules on the length or the form of the story- it can be a short sentence, an essay, a poem or a soap opera – WHATEVER
  • There is no rules on the artform you choose – it can be a scrapbook layout, an altered art project, an artjournal page – WHATEVER
  • Here is a rule though: if you take the photo you have to link back to us andshow us your story.
  • These pictures are from our personal stash and are for personal use for you only! If you want to use them for a publication whether a book or magazine in print or digital form please ask for permission!
  • If you want to participate we’ll have a linky list for each Whatever Post.
  • You can also join our The Whatevers -Facebook Page

    I especially like the drippy paint and the wonky circles.

    Oh my — love the way the Inktense blocks look — so colorful and amazing! Wonder what old Heinrich is going on the USA — he can only be getting in trouble ;-) xo –
