Welcome to my ‘greens’ s~A(R)T~urday linky party!

In art, the hand can never execute anything higher than the heart can imagine.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Arrrrgggh! I didn’t make it. I tried. I had fun. I…. o.k. slow down. What’s happening – or not?

Well, I started a new painting last week. I think I mentioned it in last Saturday’s post. And I was certain I’d get it finished. Because two days this week I got home just before six and that gave me an hour or so to be able to paint. Outside. Before it got dark. Then Friday came and everything looked good until – I had to stay later at work to finish stuff before going on a trip and then dropping by the pharmacy on the way home. Meaning it was 6:30 pm before I got home.

I dropped all my bags, got my painting stuff and sat down outside and starting drawing in a few details. But within about half an hour it was getting dark, it had been pretty overcast, so I had to stop. Because I just couldn’t see anymore what I was painting. And that is quite obviously no good.

So today, instead of getting out an older piece for my post, I decided to show you the piece I am working on. It is obviously not finished. Hand, butterfly, shirt, background – all need more, it is a work in progress. Since I won’t have time for the next couple of weeks, this is going to be it for now. I am very simply calling it

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.”
