Poetry is painting – any kind of art linkup on Saturday

Poetry is painting - any kind of art linkup on Saturday

Welcome to the weekend. Welcome to Saturday art link up!

s~A(R)T~urday

Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.”

Leonardo da Vinci

I think that I will be a little wordless this time around from my art link up. The one thing that I wanted to say, what I need to point out is that my link up is for any kind of art, not only photo art, because poetry is painting. Fictional writing, prose is wonderful art. So, if you have a writer among your friends, please welcome them to our little community. I would love to read and showcase their work, too.

Have a wonderful weekend, friends!

 *** Here is where I link up today. ***

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

I hope that over time we will be building a community dedicated to art and creating. My personal medium is photography and photo art, but I do not want to put a limit on my art link up. Thus I encourage you to join me, no matter which your art form is.

Please don not be intimidated that I am calling this an art link up. I want you to share your creations. Art is completely subjective. It takes courage and time to realize that you may actually call your own creations art. If you believe they are pieces of art, I believe they are. They may be good or bad or great – who am I to say?! I’d rather like to think along these words from 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.”

    Your post inspired me to go looking for poetry I had written some time ago. And then I had to create an image to go with it of course. It’s a bit dark themed though. The little girl in the frame is actually me at age 5 as Mother Mary in the school Christmas pageant.

    I have been feeling that quite a bit lately. I think I’m on the verge of breaking free, but I can’t quite be sure yet. It feels like things are coming together the way they are supposed to. I know the saying is “leap & the net will appear” but it’s difficult to trust. At least it is for me.

    Thank you for joining me again this week! I have been thinking about what I can add to your link-up – I’m thinking perhaps my (almost) wordless wednesday post. I meant to do a writing piece but didn’t get to it. Next week, though. 😉

    • Claudia Willison

      I know exactly what you mean. I very much value safety (net and all), too. However, there comes a point where I just cannot wait anymore. I am sure you will get there, too, if you are not there already.
      You could have linked it, Jen as I said, also (almost) SOOC photos are o.k., but of course, you’re also very welcome to come back next week 😉

  • McGuffy's Reader

    Thank you for including me and my writing., Claudia. You are wonderful.I admire and respect what you do…and you.

  • Cathy Kennedy

    Lovely colors and words to inspire the imagination & soul! Thanks for sharing this morning & hosting the weekend photo-art fun!

  • Susi

    I always want to link up and never seem to get around to it. One of these days I will… Hope all is well with you. xoxo

    • Claudia Willison

      I totally know the feeling, Susi. Not to worry. And, hey, you’re travelling! So, you really, really don’t have the time right now. There is always next week.

  • NatureFootstep Bildverstan

    fine art, but net easy to break free.

    It is very hard to read the fonts you choose 🙁

    • Claudia Willison

      Thank you. True, it never is to shatter the chains of the past…

      I’m sorry to hear that you are having a problem with my fonts. Which one in particular? The article font? Or the one on the image?

  • Ida P. Krause

    I’m horrible at writing poetry but I do think “art” is many things. I enjoyed your piece and had fun creating mine to share.

    • Claudia Willison

      Yeah, I am not particular great at it either. But – I will always give everything a try, Ida. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
      And many thanks for linking up!!

  • Rorybore

    Oh I love that first quote so much!! that really sums up art, doesn’t it.
    and I like your art edit — I am a sucker for lovely poster art with a great quote. And look at you becoming a pretty fine poet!!
    well done well done! 🙂
    mine took me forever this week… but it was so fun. I had this whole idea of what I wanted to do; across 2 images, and while I can’t say with complete conviction that I got it exactly right: I did get the general idea of that image I had in my head. Just a lot of “tweaking” still to learn.
    maybe with a little faith, a little trust…. and some pixie dust! (you’ll see – ha)

    • Claudia Willison

      Thank you very much, Leslie. Very intentionally I did not write anything about the image i.e. how I made it, the quote etc. But you are right, they are my humble words. I really do not feel like a writer. Yet. You never know, I’ll dabble some more in it. But I really had fun doing the water color background with – *grasp* – real watercolor – LOL.
      I did some more yesterday. But I also took my dSLR onto our deck and took a few shots of spring buds – you’ll see 🙂
      And now off to check out your work.
      Thank you for linking up!

  • Mascha

    Hi, I’,m from Germany. I make photos and “picstories” with my own photos and collages with all, what I find… with or without words…
    Have linked up two storys, hope, that’s okay.

    I think that art is never better or worse. Everyone does his own work in their own way

    • Claudia Willison

      Hi Mascha, I’m from Germany, too 🙂 So, you are doing mixed media – i find that fascinating and want to start with that, too.
      I agree, there is no right or wrong in art.

  • Mascha

    PS: Your email subscription will not working for me 🙁

  • Mascha

    Oh hier kann ich Deutsch schreiben – das ist gut!
    Ich sags mal ehrlich: ich kann in Deinem Blog fast nix lesen, meine Augen sind sehr schlecht und die Schrift ist so dünn und nur die obere Buchstabenhälfte überhaupt da… also ich habs nicht gleich gesehn und die Info über diese Meme las ich in einem anderen Blog.
    Ich bitte um Entschuldigung für evtl. Tippfehler – auch diese kann ich hier nicht korrigieren.
    Liebe Grüsze
    Mascha

    • Claudia Willison

      Hallo Mascha, lieben Dank für Deinen Input. Auf Grund meiner Fotografie habe ich einen kalibrierten Monitor und auch o.k. Augen. Da vergisst man leicht, daß das leider nicht jeder hat. Daher bin ich Dir dankbar für die Info. Ich hab die Schrift nun geändert und hoffe, daß die hier lesbarer ist. Ich find sie halt nicht so schön, aber Schönheit ist ja nicht alles.
      Bis dahin,
      Claudia

  • OneDad3Girls

    Brilliant, loving the words

    Thank you for linking up

  • Tamar SB

  • Kim Cunningham

    Awesome poetry. Here is to the journey of new beginnings!
