I've been blessing myself with some deep breaths
after returning from SteemFest!
Finding my way back to my groove, I'm gearing up for new artistic expression.
I've been doing art collaborations with some of my physical friends
for many years in many different mediums.
Recently, I've been ecstatic about doing art collaboration
with other Steemian artists too.
As a matter of fact,
I used all the post rewards raised by these collaborations
to help fund my way to Steemfest in Amsterdam.
I wasn't able to completely fund my journey,
but every little bit helped
and I am so incredibly honored to have received such
heartfelt support from this community.
When arriving in Amsterdam I got to meet many of those
artists who have played with me.
What a super blast to know those who have added their energy to mine
to create masterpieces, building this artists community together.
I love opening Steemit and receiving presents of artistic transformation.
I would like to play some more with you.
This is the way to play:
I offer up this creation to be used as a base for the collaborative piece.
This is a portion of my painting/drawing on canvas with
watercolors, acrylics, colored pencils and ink.
Print the image or do whatever
it is you need to do to add to/or alter it.
(i.e., including but not limited to painting, drawing,
adding other photographs, collaging,
altering it digitally or however you wish . . .
or perhaps even adding a tune like @lloyddavis did for our Ned's Head collaboration, or perhaps a music video like @allgoodthings did with the artwork of others.)
We're artists, so anything goes!
Then make a post about it,
sharing your process and anything about it that inspires you.
Note: Making a post is not a requirement to play, so don't let any time constraints or "rules" get your patties up in a wad. But, if you do make a post about it with your process we can share our works more prolifically and people will likely be intrigued by seeing how it developed.
I know I will!
Tag your post with #art and #CollaborativeArtJourney.
Copy the link from your post into a comment below.
(If you don't make a post--though I hope you will--
please just post your finished piece in the comments below.)
After the deadline I will make a post featuring all the collaborations
and highlighting all the different pieces inspired by the same original photo/art.
This round I will be donating any rewards from the post to my favorite and most honorable group doing humanitarian works: the @gardenofeden.
(I am a full-time volunteer at the @gardenofeden, living the vision of @quinneaker, creating a life based on sustainability, freedom and responsibility--holding space for the betterment of humanity and freedom for the children! This is an incredibly worthy cause I support with 100% of my energy! Here is a taste of just two weeks in the @gardenofeden vortex.)
Deadline for this submission is
Wednesday, November 23, 2016 at Midnight CST. Just in time for another day of gratitude.
Together we are building a strong art community,
getting to know one another,
and creating some masterpieces along the way.
Here is my most recent post following my trip to Steemfest that highlights all of our other collaborative works.
Links are provided for each artist's contribution. Enjoy!
And for easy access, my post of our completed works on our first piece is here.
I hope you are inspired to play with me and the other Steemian artists.
If you know other artists, musicians, videographers, photographers or others who would also like to play, please share this post so we can get the artistic juices and steem rolling!
