Hello, everyone. Here my entry:


"Paradise is the place where your body wants to be doing what your mind would like to do forever."

Thanks Julien :)

Once again grateful to @uliakponsford for their motivating contest, my presentation today is following the idea of juliak relative to paradise, my personal paradise is a beautiful, almost deserted beach where the waves of the sea invite us to dream and be in harmony with the universe.

It can be a musical composition?

Sure, and if you can include proof of date that it was made specifically for the contest that would be ideal :)

Thank you for joining, I am intrigued!

hello, here my entry for art explosion week 45, for the theme PARADISE :


Thanks peacegeneration :)

Interesting technique, thanks!

You are welcome @juliakponsford for your response... 👌👌

Just out of curiosity, why aren't you accepting writing anymore?

For a few reasons, there are already many writing contests on Steemit , I was receiving a lot of foreign language writing entries and using google translate it never sounds very good. There are so many different forms of art I figured it would be easier to stay focussed a bit. Also on peak weeks I was receiving upwards of 100 entries so it was taking a significant amount of my time to keep up :)

Well, I have to agree in everything you said. There ARE already so many writing contests, but just a few visual arts contests and Google Translate always screws up any text.
