Welcome to the weekend. Welcome to my Saturday linky party – s~A(R)T~urday!

In art, the hand can never execute anything higher than the heart can imagine.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

This has been my first week without a Wordless Wednesday and thus with just one post, my s~A(R)T~urday, since this blog began in 2011. Mind you I had another website with a blog before that. Anyways, the point is it felt weird not to be participating in the crazy WW rat race.

But it also felt good.

I was actually very tempted to post something. But never even once did I think about adding a linky. So, maybe I will have a post this week. Or maybe I won’t. What I will do, I hope, is create more and connect more with people and things that matter more.

Since we finally got our car back last weekend we are going to go bicycling later today. Seems weird to mention the car, right? Well, we could go bicycling right out of our front door, however it would be paved asphalt and traffic. Which we don’t tend to like. So, we rather drive 40 minutes to get to the awesome Kittatinny Valley State Park, where you are off-road and with no traffic, except for other bicyclists, runners and the occasional horse back rider. The weather looks great for the time being, so

let’s make the best of the remaining summer 2015.

What are your plans for the the weekend and the week ahead? Anything good or exciting on your agenda?

Speaking of ‘exciting’, last week I indulged myself to luxury. I felt the need to take a break not only from WW, but, on Wednesday funnily enough, I took a day off work. Just for me. Luxury, right?! In the morning I went to PT, came home and went to work (Photoshop) right away. Had a shower followed by a brief lunch break together with David and then – straight back to Photoshop until it was night and dinner (making) time. I added all the hours that went into the image below – exactly 10 hours of straight Photoshop work.

What a wonderful day it had been.

Last week’s final entry to s~A(R)T~urday came from Ramona from Create-With-Joy. Another one of her gorgeous cards. How could you not feel the love that goes into them, if you are lucky enough to get one of them? Please check out her entry here.

And this is my image. The one I created last Wednesday. Now it is your turn, what have you been up to?

I hope that over time we will be building a community dedicated to art and creating. I rather like these words said by Andy Warhol:

Don’t think about making art, just get it done.

Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. 

While they are deciding, make even more art.”
