The Week Links: saying goodbye

For the last 127 weeks, I have shared 7 of my favorite online finds every Sunday in The Week Links.


Doing the math, that is 889 links. Have you seen them all? If not, you can find them all be here.

Feeling the need to scratch a different itch, the time has come to lower the lights on The Week Links. And while they say that all good things must come to an end, I would rather say when one door closes, another door opens.

Stay tuned for a new online series early next year that I hope will be as inspiring as The Week Links has been. Thanks to all the artists who generously allowed me to share their work and all of you who visited me every Sunday, clicked links, and/or left comments.

To close, as hard as it was to do, I have picked some favorites among my favorite favorites from the last 2+ years to share with you one more time. 

SUBLIME SCULPTURAL SURFACES

I'm a bit late to the party as I've only just discovered Week Links but at least now I have 127 weeks' worth of inspiration to fall back on! Can't wait to see what you have in store for us for 2017!

That was a lot of work over so many weeks. Thank you so much, Seth! I enjoyed the links and it was great to discover a lot of artists I hadn't known. I look forward to seeing what you will come up with next year.

Always loved the Links...but I'm sure the new adventure in 2017 will be just as inspiring...and will still be the bagel for my Sunday morining coffee! :-) Can't wait

I want to thank you for all the time and effort that you put into this project. It has inspired me so many times. When I thought the well was dry your post gave me the splash of inspiration that I needed to prime my creative pump. Good luck with your next projects.

It's been fun reading the links each week, and I look forward to whatever direction the new year will take.. in the meantime, some amazing art to drool over today!

Roberta Warshaw said...

And thank you Seth for sharing these links for all this time! No small feat!

elle said...

oh, now these high lights will consume most of the day. But a great way to end the links. I'm sure you are going to offer something stellar in the new year. Thanks so much, Seth!

Thank you for all the time you have devoted to this feature and for continually finding and sharing the creativity of so many incredible artists I have loved every visit / click .
Wishing you nothing but the best in your new ventures . Looking forward to tuning in .....

Impressive line up of art!! Inspiring to say the least, now I want to go paint!!

Diana Gabriella said...

I can only imagine how long it takes to curate each week's links! Looking forward to your next project and inspiration 😊

Debi Adams said...

I will miss these but since I am fairly new to your blog, I will have plenty of future (or is that past viewing?) to do! Gotta catch up sometime. Thanks for all the research you have done to bring these to us each week. So appreciated.

Daisy Yellow said...

Thanks Seth for your dedication to this weekly round-up! On to new things!

Jo Murray said...

Double WOW!!!!! The week links is going out with a bang. Well done Seth....it's been an amazing journey.

Squiddy said...

There is a season for everything, so good for you in recognising it's time to expend your efforts elsewhere. This will be missed of course, but I'm looking forward to what you come up with next.

cHim-prints said...

And those are many of the reasons I will miss these weekly trips into the art world. Thank you for this effort Seth. It has been great! Can't wait to see what's next. 😊

Linda Teddlie Minton said...

I'm also late to the party in discovering this series (although I've followed your work for a while). I'm going to go back and look at all the earlier stuff you've posted ... great inspiration, thank you!!!

Tammy said...

Thank you so much for all of these links, I have enjoyed them (almost) every Sunday and am always surprised at the art and inspiration I find here. Can't wait to see what's next!

Miss Iowa said...

You've introduced me to a lot of artists that I probably would not have found on my own, and I thank you immensely. Was astonished to see that Therese Murzda was included among your favorites--she has a new show opening in early 2017 at a gallery in my hometown! Seeing as how I live in the boonies, that's quite a coincidence!

Cindy said...

This has been such a wonderful resource. It introduced me to so many wonderful artists. Thank you for the time and effort it took to put it together. Looking forward to the next series!
(The prices in this last post were just gorgeous.)
