Green lady & blue butterfly | sARTurday

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

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

 

As most of you know I have been away for the past couple of weeks, first business then pleasure, attending my sister-in-law’s wedding in San Francisco. There will be lots of photos of this time in the future on this site. Not of the wedding, because I did not shoot photos, but of northern California, specifically San Francisco. During this time I did not have the opportunity to check out all your works that you linked last week. But this weekend, while getting over the jet lag, plus Monday is Columbus Day and our company is closed (YAY!!), I will be making my rounds.

Of course, I did not have time to work on anything new myself and it is too early to post any photos (they are still transferring to my hard drives…), so, I will show you an updated Green Lady (here is the link to the first version) from the weekend before I left from San Francisco. I will have to rework the hand, because it looks kind of crippled and the ear, too. The rest is pretty o.k. and I especially like the blue butterfly.

All right, and that’s a wrap for now. Have a great weekend, All!

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.”

    Welcome home! You missed the east coast horrors and for that I am glad for you. Looks like, from the pictures you posted, that you enjoyed California!

    The butterfly is beautiful! Love the vibrant blues. But I’m really loving how green ladies lovely eyes are just popping out of the drawing too. There’s something there that just draws the viewers eye – a calmness, and with maybe just a touch of wistfulness? Ha – my imagination is working overtime because I’ve been writing. But I’d like to think she’s trying to tell us something. And actually, she rather looks exactly like how I’d picture the woman Callie in my story. That serenity seems to be here too. 🙂

      I love it when imagination work overtime. So, you just go right ahead.
      Your story, Callie, did I miss the next installment while being away? If so, I will find it soon.

  • Kisma

    There is calmness to the whole piece. A very nice reminder to slow down.
    Love it and look forward to the pictures of CA.

    • Claudia Willison

      I guess part of the calmness is my choice in color. Blue and green are very calming 🙂
      Pictures will be coming. Doing some commenting and blogging now, but then…

  • Gemma Wiseman

    An interesting, colourful image. Love the flow of lines.

  • Pippa

    Also hallo, meine Liebe,
    auch diese Woche hast Du Dich wieder gut versteckt in deinem blog.
    war circa 10 mal gucken, bevor ich es gefunden habe.
    na ja, bleibt eben eine herausforderung.
    hab eine gute Woche mit deinem blauen schmetterling,
    herzlich P.

    • Claudia Willison

      Nee, nee, nee, Pippa. Hab mich nicht versteckt. Alles ist ganz genauso wie die letzten Wochen. d.h. Menü an der linken Seite, sARTurday, et voila. Wenn Du es so nicht sofort gefunden hast, dann kann es eigentlich nur daran liegen, daß Dein Browser Dir erst eine gecachte Seite angezeigt hat, die Du refreshen musst. Oder aber Du hast zu früh geguckt, denn ich hab gestern erst am Nachmittag unserer Zeit, also Abend bei Euch gepostet. Hinke noch ein wenig hinterher. Aber schön ist es, daß Du Dir trotz allem die Mühe gemacht und den Artikel gefunden hast. Ich hoffe, Du hast einen tollen Sonntag.

  • Debbi Decker

    Yes, there were horrors and still are for SC and some parts of NC. It was the whole will he//won’t he for Virginia for a few days and the rain that SC got would have been ours. Gahhh. And for a brief time period the Hurricane looked to hit NJ so yea, you missed it. 🙂

    • Claudia Willison

      Aah, o.k. I guess I didn’t really take into account how much rain you got in the south. Well, better this than it hitting land. I hope you’re enjoying NOLA 🙂

  • McGuffy Ann Morris

    Beautiful, vivid colours. I especially love green lady’s eyes. My favourite is the blue butterfly. Gorgeous.

  • Leovi

    Pretty picture,
    Wonderful butterflies

  • Tamara

    I love the green lady and the blue butterfly. They go well together.
    I miss SF and its surrounding areas very much so I look forward to your photos.

  • Pippa

    …..weisst du, wie ich es letzte woche gefunden hatte:
    über die mittwochsaktion digital art.
    heute sehe ich, dass das mit der seitenleiste aktuell seit wenigen minuten nach updates vom browser wieder funktioniert.
    na, jedenfalls freue ich mich schon auf deine heutige aktion.
    herzlich P.

    • Claudia Willison

      Wirklich? Ist schon komisch. Ich denke es lag wirklich an Deinem Browser, irgendein update oder refresh, denn ich habe seit Wochen nichts geändert. Und werde auch kaum etwas ändern in näherer Zukunft – keine Zeit, muss malen 😀

  • Create With Joy

    I love your art Claudia! Thank you for sharing it with us at Inspire Me Monday – I’m delighted to feature you at this week’s party #198 at Create With Joy! 🙂
