Welcome to my s~A(R)T~urday linky party – today: A flower quote
“Art attracts us only by what it reveals of our most secret self.” ~Jean-Luc Godard ~
While I am sitting here in front of my computer, I am also looking out the window and am wondering why? Why is it snowing, again? Of course, it is winter, but with the recent temperatures it really felt like almost spring. I swear it was in the air just yesterday. But, nope, not yet. So, while I am looking at the white
beauty winter outside I can’t help wondering if I should really drive to work now or wait a little longer. After all it is said to taper off in an hour or so. For now my decision is to wait a little and instead work on my Saturday blog post.
Last weekend I started another little painting. For the first time on a aquaboard instead of normal paper, and I liked it. Thankfully I bought a few more, so I am hoping to be starting another one this Saturday. But we will see how things develop.
In case you’re interested the process for this picture was: Moisten it completely, drip and smudge around india ink, apply acrylic paint, blot it off a little and after all is dried embellish with Posca gel pens and Micron pens. I probably could have continued adding and adding, but at some point you have got to take a step back and revalue what you have created. And then either keep on going or stop. I decided to stop at this point. Before all the dotting got totally out of hand. But it was so much fun to create something different. It really is a mixture of very intuitive, free painting and more illustration like art. Maybe a little like me – a mixture of a lot of things.
Hm, the snow is still falling, but I think I better get ready to head out.
And so I did and had another long day at work, did some grocery shopping afterwards and am now home, Friday night 7 pm. A bit late and I don’t feel like cooking, so we are going to try Domino’s again. I say ‘try’, because we had a bad experience last time we ordered. But since it happened only once in maybe twenty (over the past couple of years), we will order there again. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Oh, and by the way, while the roads were a bit slippery in the morning, the snow is now pretty much gone again. But driving to work looking at winter while it was happening I thought to myself ‘I don’t care if I’m going to be late, but I will stop and take some photos’. And so I did. I stopped at my usual place, Central Park Hanover, where I always go jogging in summer and took some winter wonderland photos with my iPhone. Here’s a sneak peek.

“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.”
