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

I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free Michelangelo

Happy 4th of July!

That being said, I expect you all to be out and about, on the beach, bbq-ing, visiting family and all that good stuff. Us, we will be having a quiet weekend at home. We already were out and about yesterday, bicycling in Kittattinny and also had our BBQ at night. it was such a beautiful day. Let’s see what the rest of the weekend will bring. Let me tell you though, it didn’t start too well this morning. My first cup of coffee – landed straight on my desk. Yep, clumsiness took over, I bumped it and had the brown fluid all over the desk and myself. Luckily no computer or its peripherals were harmed. Oh well…

Monica of NatureFootstep had the last entry in previous week’s s~A(R)T~urday. Do you know what a Columbine looks like? I guess I don’t, because I didn’t recognize it. She shows us a white one, and it is simply gorgeous. Please check it out here: Last week’s entry here.

And this here is my latest image, I call it ‘breathe/breeze‘. Typically I don’t name my images and rather leave it up to the viewer, but in this case, I felt I had to. I used a model photo by Sebastian Michaels with lots of added textures and brushes. You could say that a lot of intricate Photoshop mojo went into this creation. I had fun creating it – I hope you like it.

What ever you’ll be doing this weekend, I hope you’re having fun! Have an awesome Holiday weekend here in the US and a wonderful weekend everywhere else! I’ll be seeing all you next week.


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

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 do 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.”
