Welcome to my s~A(R)T~urday linky party – today: Flames

“When I say artist I mean the one who is building things … some with a brush – some with a shovel – some choose a pen.”
~ Jackson Pollock ~

It has been another ‘short’ week of sorts. Short on time due to … well, let’s see.

Monday – normal day i.e. getting up too early, working all day at the office, coming home, working out, make dinner, have dinner, watch something and go to bed.

Tuesday – see Monday except no work out, but frizz appointment = no time to create

Wednesday – see previous day, but had dinner with a friend at Shanghai Jazz, an Asian restaurant with live jazz music every night – very cool!

Thursday – yep, previous day + Holiday Party! At a local restaurant, had good company, good food and too much to drink and got home way too late to go to work the next day, but…

Friday – get up too early after a party, but survived the day. Barely. Alas, last night’s creativity did not happen since I was too tired and after work out, a hot bath and dinner, I fell into bed at 9:30 🙂

So, finally this morning I got up normal time and did not get lost in the interwebs, but did something I haven’t done in a while: I played with Photoshop. I am not sure yet if I like what I have created, but – I need to get back into the groove of creating. And as such, you simply have to create.

Be it for five minutes or for five hours, love it or hate it, but create something.

Trust me, I will be creating more this weekend. David and I have also continued working on our computer game (latest update here) and sometime this weekend we are going to create a small video to show you some gameplay motion to give you a better idea. Because, static pictures just don’t do the game justice.

But first – kicking D. out of bed, then breakfast, followed by – bike riding in New Jersey, in December. Most likely in shorts, because it is going to be in the 60s °F today and in the 70s °F tomorrow (18° – 22° C) – wow!

I hope you will enjoy your weekend.

I hope that over time we will be building a community dedicated to art and creating. I rather like these words said by 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.” 

Drop me a comment and you’ll make me smile!
