| FEBRUARY 2013 - Our Group's First THEME of 2013!|
Opens: Feb. 1st, along with our other five original Folders!
Closes: Feb. 28th
ONE Entry per Member!
Submit One Entry that contains a visible and obvious HEART within Nature or made from Nature.
It should either be a heart that is occurring Naturally, or at least one that appears Natural- such as if it has been "placed" there, like in a photo-manipulation, as long as it is a HEART that looks Natural, OR
it COULD be a heart that is created using materials FROM Nature, such as in a Conceptual or Still Life piece.
This theme is great for a wide variety of Art-Media, which is good, since we are an ALL-Media group!
This idea can be represented with photography, traditional, digital, photo-manips., fractals, animations, etc.,
it could even be presented in literature, by writing about hearts found in Nature!
Common examples of this are:
heart-shaped leaves, flower petals which are heart-shaped- usually with using two petals, two flowers that appear to make a heart shape, two pine cones together, leaves or other things in Nature placed in the shape of a heart, an animal lying down in what looks like the shape of a heart, two or more animals which when placed or laying together are making a heart shape, two or more insects which when close together create a heart shape, heart-shaped clouds, a heart seen within the refraction of a water drop, and probably MUCH MORE!
Be careful with humans, architecture, and transportation... it is possible such items could be present in the submission, since we do now have a special folder where these items can be PART of a NATURE submission.
Just be sure that the submission is actually about NATURE!
Similarly, if it's a Still Life, Conceptual, Abstract etc., as long as the focus is about Nature, and we can see the heart that is Natural, or made to look Natural, or made FROM Nature, then we can accept it!
There really is lots of lee-way, so HAVE FUN WITH THIS!
