My humble thanks to all the artists who have participated in these collaborations.
I find it truly amazing that you all continue to play, even though I offer no incentive/financial reward that often comes with this type of a collaborative initiative.
I am most inspired that this is not a competition,
but instead a collaborative effort,
and not based on "what can I get out of this",
but "what I can give".
Those of you who play have incredibly big hearts, are over-the-top supportive of this artist's community, and I am honored to be a part of your lives.
Enjoy the final results of Collaboration No. 14

I offered up an Invitation to collaborate on this photograph
This is a spinning Christmas tree ornament with little flickering Christmas lights catching the shine as they dance upon the ball. I decided not to reveal exactly what this image was BEFORE the collaboration began, to see how artists may/may not create their art influenced by the knowledge of the image, or the lack thereof. I don't feel that in this particular case it made much of a difference, as it perhaps could have on our last collaboration "Wisdom of the Ancients".
Then, 8 more artists took my image and did their thing
to produce 10 Collaborative Masterpieces
from my one photograph and their imaginations.

You've done it again verbal-d!!! I too find this a very hypnotic piece, left me full, yet still the desire for another taste lingers. I just keep hitting the play button!! I wonder how long I can hang out here on your post without it resembling stalking! LOL!! Your sound always moves me and I am grateful that you are inspired to create such good-feeling vibrations. Thanks for being you and for sharing yourself with the Steemit community. We are blessed!
That's an intriguing selection of pieces for this image -- it's so vibrant and the textures are really interesting. A very high catching transformation @yadamaniart!
Such vibrant colors--I love the way the gold metallic is great contrast. I'm a spiral girl, so that's another element that is a great draw for me. This may be one of my favorites of your pieces. Great job @opheliafu! Again!
@soyjoseluis that was awesome. I love the way you play with your posts and always offer up such a grand story as well. You post in itself is a piece of art. Thank you for bringing yourself to this collaboration!
Ooooooo--that is inspiring!!! What a beautiful duet of expression!! So glad to have you play with us @pyrowngs.
Wow!!! I'm really impressed that you are just learning photoshop and did this already!! PS has been on my list of tools to utilize, but alas, I keep opting for playing outside instead of on the computer. A very fun piece @pyrowng. Grateful for this second piece of AWESOMENESS!
Oh @meesterboom--you never cease to amaze me. There is always a surprise flowing through you. I love it that you made those little bugs. That makes this image all that much sweeter!!!! So glad you play this game with us!
Abstractly search obscure moments,
Weary as the night laments.
Seeking to survive transition,
Discover growth not ammunition.
Embrace the pain then let it go,
Resist the sensual undertow.
Fall then stand then fall again,
Resist ego's desire to defend.
What's past can never be retrieved,
Attempting to won't bring reprieve.
Everloving healing powers,
I'm silent yet my heart it howls.
In the hopes that I am on the ball,
Not teetering until I fall.
Trust the ID to guide the way,
The guise of faith to face the day.
This is quite the post @girlbeforemirror--and quite the piece of art! It is so expressive with the vibrant foreground contrasting with the darkness in the background. It feels like the light inside being released to overcome the darkness. Transformation comes, one little stroke at a time! Art heals. I love that we are doing it together!!!And your poem is AWESOME!!!
Oh YES! This is fun and a great use of my image @aksinya. I'm always excited to see your posts and the creations you come up with. A beautiful expression comes through you. So grateful to receive your blessings!
Hehehehe---clever!!! Great interpretation @aksinya. All-ways such a pleasure!
Everyday I count my blessings for all of the
beautiful people in this community.
