Welcome to the weekend. Welcome to Saturday art link up!
“There are always flowers for those who want to see them.” Henri Matisse
And I definitely want to see them! Like soon. Or better yet – now. Spring is really taking its time this year, don’t you think? Or is it just me? Or just around here that it seems so late? In any case, it makes me yearn for some spring art, summery pictures and to go outside and find the first signs of spring. But that’s not going to happen any time soon. For me that is. Not as long as I am hopping along on crutches, meaning maybe another two weeks? Not sure if a walking boot is going to be that much better at first, but that is what I am hoping for.
Until then I will be stuck with older photos. But, who am I kidding, I have got thousands of them. My Lightroom catalog tells me that I am at 75000. Time to crack the 100000. Mind you, that is digital only, not counting all the films I shot that are still waiting to get scanned. Which will probably happen when I retire. So, not very soon.
Below picture was definitely created with spring in mind. A couple of my photos, which I processed in Photoshop and Topaz, then added some textures, some more Photoshop mojo and here we are.
Do you have signs of spring in your area yet? Do you work with those signs in your spring art or do you prefer to pull out older material?

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.”
