Welcome to my s~A(R)T~urday linky party – today: ice crystals
“The whole culture is telling you to hurry, while the art tells you to take your time. Always listen to the art.”
~ Junot Diaz ~
I really, really need to listen to Junot Diaz’ quote, which is why I chose to utilize it for one more week. Wow – what a week it was. I feel the very overwhelming need to slow down and to start creating, because I know that it helps me focus and enjoy life by being balanced.
Last week was anything but balanced. I haven’t sat in my painting area even once. Photoshop? Only to put together my Wednesday post. And the worst thing, I am not sure if I will find the focus to start creating something today. But I will sure try and start. Because you know what Pablo Picasso said:
[Tweet ““Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.” Pablo Picasso #art #quote”]
So, with that sentiment in mind I will sit my butt down and start working. But later, because now, I want to finish this post. I hope you’ll forgive me that it is a short one.
On Wednesday I showed you the photo-journalistic photos of last weekend’s snow storm. And I thought that today it was time for a bit more artsy photos. However, all of these are straight out of the camera(s) and not edited in Photoshop.
First off two photos I took with my iPhone in the middle of the night:
And then a few that I took with my DSLR during the snow storm:
And then this last one, also a shot with my DSLR, I did a tiny bit of editing, a split-toning in Lightroom:
Did you find a favorite?
And what is your answer to the initial question?

Please help me spread the word about my Saturday Art Linkup and grab my badge below:
“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.”
