Welcome to sARTurday – the Saturday art linkup

Good morning, All. I am not sure if I had mentioned previously, but lately I am a little lost for words. It’s like I want to blog and tell you what is going on, yet somehow I am so much in visual mode that really all that I can come up with are pictures, drawings and photos.

I am toying with the idea to going back to doing a ‘Wordless Wednesday’ kind of post, maybe on a Saturday? And let art take up the whole space on this day? Well, clearly I cannot right now. It is probably too early and I barely managed getting the gif of my colorful illustration’s evolution together. And the color temperature in the last picture is still off – sigh.

But what I had wanted to do for a while is show you some pictures I took during our Holiday trip to San Francisco. Now, don’t expect any artful stuff, I didn’t have much time so I did not play with the photos (much).

While in San Francisco we stayed with my SIL and did a few day trips to Rio Vista a known windsurfing location in the summer months, to Half Moon Bay south of the city and, of course, to the wine country. This time to Napa and we made it to Domaine Chandon, who make excellent bubblys. The tasting itself was a bit too commercial in my opinion, however the grounds the vineyard is built on is beautiful and the wine yummy. All photos with glasses or bottles were taken here.

And that’s it – high time to publish this post today and have you link up your creations.

Have a wonderful weekend!




If I have time I will be linking with one or more of the fine people in this collection – check them out!
