I have been looking at online photo sharing communities for years. I just discovered 500px. It really has great options for sharing and meeting other photographers. You can sell and license your photos with them. They have the option to watermark your work as well. It seems to be a really useful and friendly community for sharing your photography. It was Created in 2009 from Toronto. It’s a global online photography community for sharing and licensing photos. Images on 500px are the work of professional and beginning photographers. Through its marketplace, 500px works with thousands of agencys and brands that use 500px images in their campaigns.

History of Zentangle™ | Tangling Art

http://tanglingart.com/history-of-zentangle/

This is a really inspiring story of Maria Thomas, Rick Roberts and the creation of Zentangle. For experienced and beginning artists practicing Zentangle is very useful.
Maria was an artist and Rick lived as a monk for 17 years. Together they created a format that anyone could use to create beautiful art.

Frida Kahlo and the Art of Resilience: Channeling Pain Through Creativity

Statement & Bio

Autumn Skye Morrison

“My purpose is to create. In that process I find stillness and rhythm, my teacher and passion. With intention, I aim to share honesty and awakening; to celebrate this fantastic adventure; to inspire and be inspired. Each canvas takes me on a journey, and as my paintbrush follows, each time I am lead back to my center.

In this shifting and challenging Time, I feel a deep stirring, a potent blossoming of creativity. It is all around us, gaining momentum and strength; in our own lives, in those of our family and community, and in the collective experience. It is our divine duty to create and share inspiration, especially at this time of change. As we honor our own personal creativity, we contribute vitally to the whole. We inspire those around us to celebrate, we empower them to create, we manifest visual mirrors to the light, divinity, and potential of each viewer.

As in any art form, as we release judgment, silence our mind, breathe deep into the process, and find bliss in each step; we realize that we are boundlessly assisted in our authentic and heart-centered expression. We step out of the way. We realize that the Art is not born of us, but through us, and in this understanding we are humbled, yet profoundly empowered. Each creation is an offering: a positive reflection of ourselves and humanity, a celebration of evolving consciousness, an opportunity for healing and deepening, a vision of a bright future and Now.

May my paintings be a mirror, a reflection of your universal light, your human essence, and your timeless divinity.”

Creation Skateboards is a company out of California that has been running since 2004. It is made by the same lions who brought to you Satori Movement, so the intentions and ethics behind them are good. We want to offer products that help the planet in some way, even if it’s just the information on the graphics or the use of reclaimed wood for the boards. The team riders not only rip but also carry these ethics we support. So help us spread this movement!!
