    I wish I knew what year Norm Darwish made this photograph. I tried to contact him on his website but, no response back. I can find information on a lot of his work, just not this series. I guess it might have came from his flowers theme. It is so beautiful, it is so mind boggling that he does this flawless of work with color pencils :)

    I have been reading where Google has released information that it may start putting it's first page ranking up for bids on search. To me this would hurt the small business people that do not have the budgets of the large corporations.

    The example that I saw used one dollar per click as an example which could be bid as high as five dollars per click. Man...I can just see Google sending me a bill saying today 5000 people clicked on my sight and bought nothing...that will be $5000 please. No way! From the statistics I have seen that 70% of potential customers will not click on adds that come up under search anyway.

    I suppose this is a way to hide paid advertising from customers by charging for search ranking. Plus they do not guarantee first page ranking anyway-even with the paid search plan.

    For those of us trying to maintain a sight I suppose we could try for page 2 or 3.

    I could better understand the system if it was a commission on sales results of some sorts.

    My humble opinion is that Google in it's largeness is becoming very greedy. I understand that they must make a profit but it should not come at the expense of putting the small business out-of-business.

    Google should remember that Yahoo and Bing are waiting in the background for the opportunity to become # 1.

    It is the 12th time.

    The 12th time that I made a motif for a award winning company.

    The award is the Danish Industry InitiativeAward 2009.

    The company is the Fittings Specialist in Fredericia, Denmark.

    It was a couple of months ago.

    As always I initiate the job by talking to the CEO. His name is Finn Roy, and he thorowly

    informed me about products, organisation, etc.

    We managed to drink three cups of coffee.

    The chemistry between us was right.

    Now you must see the robot, Finn Roy said.

    The robot???

    First I thought of Gyro Gearloose

  2. Hello people...Sorry I haven't been on here but have had all kinds of things going on.....like new drawings and playing with digital painting.....What fun it is learning a lot and still more to learn I think its endless...lol......

    I got into the field of animation because animation is beautiful. Taking something that is still or something that you have created and moving it. You are creating and bringing life. I've always loved movies and I've always loved animations. The stories were great, but there was more to it. I could feel what the character felt and it felt like they were real. The movement was beautiful, close to life but not quite, it was very different. Anyway, animation opened up a whole new realm of opportunities for me. There's so much more to it than people realize. It allows me a chance to indulge in all of my senses and forms of expression. Background design, character design, object design, hands-on sculpture, stop motion animation, texture, sound effects, music, story, writing, and more and more, the possibilities are endless.

    That's all I wanted to say for now. My gallery is small right now but I have tons of projects in the works (I have so many unfinished ideas) as well as some projects that need to be finished for my freelance clients. But check back often as I will keep on updating. Be sure to check out my other places on the web as well!

    If you ever want to find me somewhere, just search ShinyHubbCap (my internet handle!)

    Meaning of ShinyHubbCap- Well, my name is Julie Hubbard. My nickname is Jewels, everybody calls me Jewels. Jewels are shiny. "Shiny" is another nickname somebody gave me. When I think "Hub" I think Hubcap. My last name is Hubbard. so ShinyHubbCap is like my name. 'Get it? :)

    My grandparents have come under some major financial stress and they're house is in jeopardy. They had these paintings they have collected over the years and are trying to find out if they have any real significance and might have something that could help them financially. There is one that appears to be one of the "Highwaymen" from Florida in the 50's and 60's that I have had someone on the Highwaymen website verify that it is Livingston Roberts' work, but he never replied back to me to give me a title of the painting or any other information. Any help anyone can offer would mean a great deal to me and my family. All the pictures in the link above have all the information I have under them. I think most of these were purchased in Florida if the helps any.

    Thanks in advance,

    Kevin

    04-07-2012, Today I took a step in my plan to make a difference in the art world. Over the years I have worked in sales and marketing but my heart has always belong to the world of art. As a high school art student, I fell in love with copper etching. oils and pastels were ok but I could not get enough of the copper etching portion of the class. Once the class ended and I could not find a way to continue on my own, I experienced withdrawals. My desire to be an artist begin to burn out and finally I turned to sports to file the void. Over the years I would dabble in oil painting projects but I could not rekindle that fire that once burned within me. It was not until I met an unknown artist by the name of Jay Burley that I begin to understand my place in the Art World. That brings me to The Curator's Shadow, the Art Book. I begin trying to help Jay get his work seen by the world. We put his work on Tee Shirts and other clothing, even coffee cups. His work was all over the web, Youtube, Myspace even Facebook. Working with Jay reminded me of all the talented people I have come across with limited or no way to get their work seen by the public in a way that would do justice to their talent. The Art Book was the answer, a way to record a piece of history that would last and be shared for years to come. The Curator's Shadow will become a National Treasure, showcasing the work of artist the future may someday label great masters. To give our new website a look see click here

    Death

    Ever since I was a little child I was afraid of dying. The thing that scares me the most is the fact you are no more; your just not here anymore. I’m terrified of leaving everyone behind once I go; just that thought alone scares me to death. What happens to you after you die? I am also worried by the unknown of dying and, what happens to your soul. I have had many people in my family pass away. The one that had me face my fears the most was my dad’s own passing.

    My dad passed away when I was eighteen years old; it will be two years in February. My dad had cancer and was put into remission, but about six to eight months later he was diagnosed again and was terminally ill. After we found out he was terminally ill the doctors said he had a month to live; in the end that’s all we had left with him.

    When we brought him home we got hospice in right away. Hospice is a service where they bring in a death bed, have a nurse that comes in a few times a week and I want to say she was a social worker who came in to be there for us. My mom, brother and I all witness he slowly pass away. The only good thing about him passing that way, instead of a freak accident, is that we all got to say good bye to him.

    It’s hard to admit that there are good things that can come from someone close to you dying. After you go through something like that it changes you; sometimes bad but also it can be a good change. I wouldn’t be the person I am today if I haven’t faced that; it has also made me face my own fear of death.

    I believe that my dad is still with us; I believe his spirit is here watching over my family and me. I have always believed that there is some form spirituality out there; even through my own confusion with my belief of God. My belief of there is life after death became even stronger after my dad left us. When I didn’t believe in God anymore I used to picture where my dad was. I would imagine a lake in the middle of the woods, at night time, even though it was dark outside it wasn’t freighting. Knowing my dad is with us gives me comfort for when I die one day.

    If I were to die tomorrow I know my dad would be there. I wouldn’t be with the rest of my family and friends, but I would still be with people I know. I would love to see my dad again but I can’t until I met my end. Just to hear him say I love you again would be amazing. I hold on to the hope that we will see each other again one day.

    After watching my own dad die I am less afraid to die. I know he will be there for me when I need him, just in a different way now. Of course it stills scares me, but I feel a little less scared of it now. It’s going to happen one day, so why not try to see the positive from it. That’s how I like to view the world; always look for the positive in a bad situation.

    So, first entry.

    New here, so on and so forth...I'm a hobbyist photographer, with main interests lying in photographing insects/other invertebrates. I don't have a fancy camera, but I do spend time making sure everything that needs to be in focus is the light conditions are just right etc etc.

    So yes, will hopefully be uploading some images soon.

  7. Well, I did say that it would be a while before I managed to get around to uploading the photos from my brief little break in Denmark at the end of July/first week in August this year. September is nearly over now, but I have been busy with work - (which, for me, working on ships, generally means very poor to non-existent internet...) And, aside from that, I had to earn some money first, in order to be able to renew my subscription for the software that artfreaks.com runs on, so that I could get it upgraded to the latest version. Now that's done, I have found uploading photos to be a breeze - on my laptop, at least! (Hopefully, the have done something to improve photo handling on mobile devices too? I will let you know, next time I give it a go.)

    After leaving my previous ship in the port of Kalundborg on the island of Sjaelland - (the same one where, København - or Copenhagen, is located) - I needed a few days to finish-off some reports and decide just exactly where I was to head next.

    I found this very inexpensive, comfortable and quiet little B&B just a few miles outside town:

    Holmehuset Bed & Breakfast Kåstrup Holmevej 23, Illerup, Kalundborg, Denmark, 4400

    I nice four mile walk through the glorious late summer rural Denmark countryside to the King's Pub in the centre of town. (Well, why walk two mile to the nearest supermarket when you can walk four miles to the nearest pub?!!)

    Needless to say, I enjoyed those walks. The photos tell a better story. Beautiful countryside and not much traffic on the roads - on average, about four or five between Kåstrup Holmevej and Kalundborg!

    I must go back there some day...

    I was looking for some kind of art blog sight to use that wasnt all mainstream so a bit more freedom of expression instead of having to listen to people actually know critzing me and telling me how ridiculous my thoughts are, hopefully this will work out but i dunno

    i guess ill upload something later but for now im just trying to get the feel of this website and ramble a bit, although this website seems rather under used...:DDD Well i dont know what to say but i feel like writing, so yeah and as far as art goes im still crazy amateur but i dont care at this moment.

    ive been so strange lately, not that i was ever normal, but im just done worrying about things, but it feels like im drowning in apathy and i hate saying how apathetic i am cause it sounds like so such a poser emo kid thing. Just with all the drama that im always surrounded in and i dont see any point in wasting my time caring, although i always feel like im wasting my time but thats not the point. i dont know, some people express their frustration/depression/ectera with talking crap about people and i just write about irrelevant things and paint/draw. But i generally feel ashamed of things i make since im well aware they arent good enough but i have to do something to maintain sanity in way other than alcohol

    My mom and her boyfriend are fighting once again so im at my brothers grandpa like 30minutes from 'my' house and my mom was yelling at me to hurry up so i didnt get like any of my stuff so ima go shopping or something so i actually have something to wear, and i also forgot my sketch pad so im going to just doodle on computer paper. well i dunno im sure this website is more art gallery-ish then blog-age but i dunno, ill upload some stuff from my deviantart later so ill feel like less of a failure, lol

    well whatever talk if you want
