gorgeous!

·
·

Thanks :-)

·

Fab fab fab fab-ulous!!! This is like no other entry @veronicavaldeon! A very clever use of my image and a great feeling interpretation indeed. You've jumped right on in with a splash -- amazing job.

https://steemit.com/art/@veronicavaldeon/my-entry-for-everlove-thanks-for-her-invitation-collaborative-art-journey-power-of-light

·
·

Ohhh thanks!! I am glad you like it!!

·
·
·

I'm glad I like it too! ;D

·

WOW---I love the way you just jumped right on in here and added such great value to our collaboration. This is a stunning piece @veronicavaldeon. Conjures up all kinds of possibilities. Great use of my image and the color is truly great for what you've shared. Thanks for being a part of this journey with us.

·
·

Thanks!! I am really enjoying this community so far!! :-)

·
·
·

So glad you are @veronicavaldeon. It just keeps getting better and better!

·

I would call it Fifth Element)) Fantastic!

·
·

Thank you. Perfect name, in fact ;)

·
·
·

Thank you ;)

·

Now this is really something! So different and still so powerful!! What a great use of my photo @mrssignificant!!! Quite remarkable, really! I love the edges--a good touch to this vintaged photo. Sweet piece. Thanks for the gift!

·

I'm so little!
I'm still at motionless rest,
half unconscious,
but Life is pulsating in me!
I still don't know , what will I be.
...maybe a pigeon, I'd love to fly like a shot arrow...
...maybe an eagle, it's so majestic...
...maybe a peacock, with beautiful feathers...
...a sparrow, always chirping...
...a duck, floating on water...
...an ostrich, running in the savannah...
...or a chicken in your yard laying eggs for you...

Wow! What a work of art! I love everything about both of these expressions @kalemandra. I am really partial to spirals and flower of life. The colors, the words---so refreshing. Thank you for this fine expression - your participation here is truly a blessing.

·
·

Thank you for your kind words. This is just a sketch, maybe it will be a bigger painting. Your photos are very inspirative. Here is my second entry, with some digital pictures: https://steemit.com/collaborativeartjourney/@kalemandra/collaborative-art-journey-by-everlove-my-second-entry-intergalactic-journey-egg-nebula-birth-of-new-world-cosmic-eye

·
·
·

Thanks for the validation.
Taking a photo that has just enough definition yet still enough interest to spark creativity is an a fun process as well.
I'm always grateful to see how it is received.

This is my favorite of your digital pictures.
They are all awesome.
What fun perspective you share @kalemandra.
Thank you for being a part of this journey.

·
·
·
·
·

Absolutely!!! We shall see what this collaboration brings! Thanks for your comment @havok777.

Awesome to see a group of people working together like this, keep up the awesome work, following.

Need some resteems to get out there more let me know, I run Steemit Blogger Central on Facebook and Twitter.

·

@sflaherty I am grateful for your appreciation of this initiative. The artists here are AMAZING!! I am astounded by not only their work, but their passion for art and support of one another.

We could always use a good Resteem and a little extra boost in sharing the possibilities. It has taken us some good time to get our posts seen, though with more of us involved, we seem to be gaining a bit of motion. Thank you for your offer. We are delighted for your services!!!

·
·

That is the power of Steemit, more that work together the more I believe true talent will blossom. I am a musician so I see the benefits of art being really enhanced by this platform. I will post for you right now. If you want swing by and check out my pages at:

Facebook:

Twitter:
https://twitter.com/steemitbc

Doing a great thing so happy to RESTEEM for you all, have a great one, don't be a stranger

·
·
·

I am checking you out already. Do I need to reach out to you with these posts or post it on a specific place for you to see?? Or....? Truly grateful for your assistance.

@verbal-d has been involved in this Collaboration for quite some time now. He is creating an album to share his musical beats and highlight this artwork. If you don't know @verbal-d, I recommend you stop by and give him a shout. Quite the blessing!

·
·
·
·

I am also incredibly partial to the @gardenofeden, a conscious, sustainable eco-village in Texas. Lots of things of value to health and well-being are shared there. Perhaps poke your head in around there a bit!!

·
·
·
·
·

Conscious...great word!

·
·
·
·
·
·

@organicfilms--would love you to stop by @gardenofeden or our website (intothegardenofeden.com). Seems we may have much in common and much to share.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Ok, thanks for the invitation!

·
·
·
·

Easiest way is if you have something you like to have RESTEEMed just message the page on Facebook, I tend to put them on both the Twitter and Facebook when I get a message. I also keep in touch with my followers as best as I can, so I will swing by now and then and see whats new and randomly help you out from time to time. I try to look out for those being so supportive and you are doing a great thing here for the community so it should be seen.

I just sent @verbal-d a follow, when I find a moment I will say hello, maybe you can tell him about me and let him know what I am doing over here if you find a moment. I actually used to be a touring musician years back, not so much now a days but into guitar and piano...was a metalhead but I toned down with age lol. So I have a huge appreciation for the arts so its really great to see a group of people supporting it when we are in a time of cut backs from grants for the arts.

·
·
·
·
·

I will do some sharing around. I'm mostly connected with the artists, parents and sustainable homesteading-type. I will send you messages and keep up whats going on over there as well.

I play the Tibetan bowls, once going to play guitar and piano. Now I mostly just enjoy them--and the violin a lot too. I really enjoy dancing so music touches my soul. I don't follow any kind of genre or musicians in general, but I know what I like when I hear it.

I feel the arts are taking off here on Steemit. It's a very open minded and heart centered community. My kind of people!

I appreciate your interest and your support of this artists community. I feel blessed already!

·

I rather help the art community more than the get rich quick guys any day lol. Crypto is a great tool and believe in its freedoms but the art community is more the kind of people I gravitate to as well so be awesome to include more of that in my postings to be honest. I been playing guitar since I was 5 and the piano a couple years later, I turned 39 hard to believe this year so I am a lifelong lover of music, all types...kind of like you open to liking whatever hits me the best. Not much of a dancer though, classic white guy with rhythm in the instruments but not the feet lol.

Just send whoever you may come across that can use the help. I am always coming up with ways to up my game in this area so I am hoping to grow this where we all just kind of sit back and help each other more and more, use the page only as a way to highlight whats out there but encourage people to connect with each other, firm believer connections with each other is most important. Its a great thing your doing, the art community really needs avenues to strive and encourage talents

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Ok you play the music and I'll do the dancing!! I set out to play both the piano and the guitar. I'm not much on lessons and strict regimented ways of learning, which was how I was being taught piano. Though I always loved piano, I hated the lessons...just wanted to play by ear my own way. Guitar just seemed to have to fit in with the rest of my world and took a back seat when my life got busier with my children. Other artistic expressions have come to the forefront for me, so I'll enjoy them until something else strikes my fancy.

I hope this all grows where we can also sit back and bask in the power of our combined energies. Thanks for doing your part -- and with great dedication.

·
·

Yes, Indeed! I am a bit lost still, but I hope soon will be more helpful!

·
·
·

I hear that @organicfilms. I've been here for about 10 months and am still finding tricks I didn't know existed. I'm not a techno kinda-gal, so I'm just winging it. Welcome to Steemit. I'm sure you will excel here.

·
·
·
·

God hears you! first to find the 3 little lines you told me! kjkjkjjk

·

@artguy!!! What a great interpretation of my image. All the colors, textures and segmented sections give lots of motion to this piece. Magical creatures I see in this world of our own make believe. I love everything about this!!! Thank you so much for the gift.

Beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope I will find time as I ma travelling these two weeks))

·

I took note of your travels. If the time is perfect, so shall it be! Blessed journey dear @aksinya!

·
·

looks like a fertilized egg?

·
·
·

Mmmmmm....sounds so yummy!!

·

This is already very yummy @opheliafu. Giving us a little tempting appetizer, eh? I'll take that!!!

·
·

Well it's been almost a week- I don't want people to think i've forgotten!!
I'm still writing and editing my story so that won't be finished until tomorrow or Wednesday.

·
·
·

It wouldn't be the same without you @opheliafu. I'm certain it will be worth the wait!

The queen of the clouds bent down to the peony and kissed her leaf, leaving behind a tiny blue dew drop. Inside the dew drop, wrapped up tightly in ball, was a small baby rain fairy. She was growing inside the tiny dew drop egg.

·
·
·
·

·
·
·

That would be awesome! I'm shooting first for the Steemit Headquarters!!

I haven't had chance yet to do a post to explain this! I'm away over weekend but I will try to do it when I'm back :-) Of course your image made me think immediately of a yolk, hence the egg (!) and you probably can see the bird is my 'woman-onthe-wing' logo. I will explain fully later, but for now I will have to love ya and leave ya!! Thanks @everlove for continuing to connect us all through beauty and creativity, it really is a wonderful thing :-)

·

Oh my gosh this image just made me smile!!! Very clever dear @woman-onthe-wing. Very clever indeed!! I love that your logo is the perfect addition to this image. Excited to hear how it came together! Thanks for the blessing!

·
·

Thank you @everlove! Hopefully I will get time tomorrow to do a post about it :-)

·
·
·

Oooooooo--awaiting with baited breath!!

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·

I can soooooo relate to what you've shared. Your art depicts it so clearly and your description so real. I thank you for putting this piece in my path @woman-onthe-wing. Your logo is quite the perfect addition to this art. And the egg...brilliant!!! <3 Thanks for sharing yourself with us.

So happy to participate in The Collaborative Art Journey again! Thank you Everlove!! I got super inspired and used some deep dream on this one!!

https://steemit.com/collaborativeartjourney/@havok777/life-stands-still-collaborative-art-journey

·

You did it!!!! This is quite an intriguing piece @havok777!!! It's all metallic looking, and every little piece of the art has it's own little thing going on! Very reptile-ish!! I also just visited your post--you made some amazing versions of this piece. I hope everyone takes the time to give you a visit. Blessings to you.

·

·
·

And thank you---you're a great asset to this community @aksinya!

While internet was not working I have made one more. I used the image of the cat I made by pastel and @everlove's image for collaboration. Here is the result "I wish I could fly"

·

This cat is really really awesome. You've really caught the softness yet texture of the hair...and the depths of color is intensely on point!! So glad you did another @aksinya. Your pieces always move me! Blessed and honored to have you with us.

·
·

xxx)))))))))


Hi!! this is my entry 2

·

Oh yes----this is quite the surprise--and yet so fitting. I very good use of my image @yusaymon. Loving how this came together with b/w as a base. You are too late to be included in the FINALE, but so glad you did it anyway as it will remain in our gallery forever!!

·

I am astounded by this beauty! The overall feeling of this art is so joyous! I feel like jumping for joy or running around in circles or climbing trees!!! An incredible job you have done @mrssignificant in transforming my photo. So very grateful for your contribution. BRAVO!

Hello all. This is my first time joining in. I hope I'm doing this right. https://steemit.com/art/@allforthegood/the-light-shines-in-the-darkness-collaborative-art-journey-21

·

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!! Shazaam!!! I almost named this something about yin/yang, or dark and light.....what a perfect interpretation @llforthegood. i LOVE IT! The font you chose fits this perfectly the bird, the sky....the whole thing is awesome. So so glad you are playing with us!


thank u..! <3

·

OH my goodness!!! This is really something!! What a beautiful piece of art @yusaymon. Truly magnificent. I love all the extra spirals around--they add just right perfect touch. Great job! So glad you are playing here with us.

·
·

@everlove thanks for ur love ever ...!! ^ ^

·
·
·

The say Love makes the world go round!!! <3

·

A very potent interpretation of my image @revostrike! The zig-zaggy effect is very moving and feels very much like spinning with pause, almost like a record that jumps around in its rotation (I'm sure there is a name for that!) I like this very much! Thanks for bringing on the goodness and sharing your inspired passion with us.

I finally finished my collaboration ;) I am getting crazy about those gifs :D so much possibilities ;) Hugs and Love <3

Yayah!!!! You got this going on!! This is a power house of energy flowing out of the screen!! Bam! Great job and amazing transformation. The blushing details at the bottom remind me of butterflies flying! This image makes me want to move!!! Thanks for the love @yoganarchista!

very inspiring, and moving!

·

Thanks for showing up here and for your comment @azracer2000. I agree--what a group of awesome artists participating here! Blessed by your appreciation.

·
·

you're very welcome!

·

I had to look that up!! I didn't know that was a thing! I've not mentioned what the pictures are until the finale to give everyone free reign on their own ideas.

Thanks for the mention!

This is a really cool collaboration idea.

·

The artists here on Steemit are incredibly impressive--both in talent and in spirit. I am honored to host this initiative. Would love you to join us.

·
·

I don´t know where to write the commentaries...hehehe but at least i got how to Re-steem, this nice initiative! I am @organicfilms in Steemit.

·
·
·

Yes I have found you--just prior to finding this comment!! I am very interested in what you do. I love what you are bringing to Steemit. Thanks for being here @organicfilms.

·
·
·
·

Thanks to you! And congratulations for your wise words.."Living in Gratitude! It's Great to be ALIVE!!"

·
·
·
·
·

That surely makes our experience richer! So much can be said for gratitude. It makes being alive a more fulfilling journey. Thanks for noticing @organicfilms.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Wisdom..100% @everlove.

Love all the entries so far! This is going to be an inspiring set! ANd with the circluar shape - in pretty much all of them - you could (or maybe I could) create a great gallery of them all - with thumbnails of each one.

·

Ooooooo....nice idea @pyrowngs. I'm not sure if you're talking a gif kinda thing, or a grid with all of them featured....or.....? I'm intrigued!

·
·

More of a grid/collage type thing... :) Mini gallery.

·
·
·

That would be a cool display for sure! Good idea @pyrowngs!

·

I was unable to get to your post through the link above.
So here it is again:

https://steemit.com/poetry/@sumsum/you-are-my-world-entry-for-collaborative-art-journey-21-l-i-f-e-s-t-a-n-d-s-s-t-i-l-l

I love hearing how in love you are! There is nothing like true love! Your poem spills your feelings out--how tangible they are through your words. I also love how you changed the colors of my image to be so full of life and cheerful. Great combination @sumsum. Truly grateful for your expression shared.

·

I'm glad you waited a few minutes to post this here, as I just had another opportunity to listen to it again. This one feels like profoundly inhaling and exhaling, and having all my cells find their harmonious balance in the space between breaths. Ahhhhh...."life stands still"! Incredible @verbal-d. Simply incredible!!!!! <3

·
·

All of the CAJs have been incredible, just grateful to add the value of our community projects, I feel so energized with this beat with a nice undertone of uncertainty as is life and death and the moments we think deeply about our purpose and existence. Thank you very much as always my friend

·
·
·

Ahhh yes. Agreed! I'm grateful to co-create with you @verbal-d!

·

Feels so good this piece @verbal-d. I love it when you can tell when someone has their heart in a loving place when making their music. I'm humbled to feel such love flow through this sound. Thank you for all you do for this Steemit community....and for coming out to play with us too.

·
·

You're most welcome my friend, so glad I can participate and give back and share what i was meant to share with the world :) Thank you for the opportunity

Hmm... This looks like - well, I will wait to find out. But if it's what I think it is... hmm....

·

Hahahaha @pyrowngs! Isn't imagination an awesome thing!

·
·
·
·
·

I am so in love with this

·
·
·

Fabulous contribution--or do I count that as 2? I love envisioning your world of peace and the tangible way to go about it through intention. Embracing possibilities and maintaining hope is of great value. Thank you for the gifts of love @pyrowngs. The world is a better place because you're in it!

·
·
·

Wonderful @pyrowngs

Hello @everlove great to see there is one again

·

Hoping you will jump on in @louiscpt!

·

YAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!
