Holiday activity - birthday presents

We've had autumn-holidays here and I have been busy preparing birthday presents for my son and my husband.
My husband loves old cars, especially Volvo Amazons, so my daughter and I decided to make a series of T-shirts for him with his favorite car on them and for fun some chickens, which he is also very fond of. We have been in a cultural centre in Flensburg, where we have edited some photos for the process and made a few serigraphy prints for my husband

and some for me of one of my favorite photo collages:

We had a wonderful time! Two days, in which we were creative and had fun preparing the prints and buying t-shirts, on the second day we made the actual prints, messing around and enjoyed being together.

The following paintings are done as preparation and in between working on a painting for my eldest son, who had a wish for one of my paintings. They are all inspired/painted after old master's portraits:

Below is a detail of the painting I made for my son:

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
