tkayolson2 : @janewallor Above comment for you. :)
booksandshit : Its so sad to hearabout your loss. I lost my mother (then aged only 52 i was 24y-old) too.Its exactly five years and one month ago. There isnt a day that i dont think about her. I also was in therapy for two years that helped nothing. finally two years ago my family had called a doctor which came with two cops to get me to a mentalinstitution because i started to drink one or two bottles of vodka a day and screaming around. I drank so much to get rid of constant panic attacks. I only was in the hospital for six days. But that was enough to scare the shit out me. I got sober and began to plan a book about these years. That was all i did the last two years: planning a book. Ok i read a lot since then. 2 years leading to a state of complete apathy because of meds and the total disgust on people. Now i met so many creative and wonderful people here especially on the abstracters_anonymous group, who got me going again. I am not saying that im back with full power but its a start and the plan is still that book. But with another ending. So please promise me to write or kik or something, when you need to talk or just have a chat. I dont want to tell people or in this case you how to live (and i'm not religious at all!) but i know sometimes its just good to have a talk with someone. Keep your head up youre a wonderful artist and i am totally sure your mom is proud of what you are creating.
tkayolson2 : @booksandshit First.... I am so sorry about your loss. Losing your mother is one if the most traumatic experiences a person can go through. My heart is with you. Second... Thank you for sharing your story. It sounds like you have had a very tough time, and I am truly sorry. I have also struggled with substance abuse and depression so I understand your struggle. Congratulations on your sobriety as well as your efforts with the book! You are a super talented artist so eel ahold of that. Creativity will only lead you to good places. I would love to chat more with you. I'm not familiar with kik, but I'm looking into it after I post this! Bravo to you and thanks again for reaching out. :)
abstracters_anonymous : This is a wonderful thread. Im so glad to see people reaching out to each other. Art has a way of helping people heal. Its my hope and prayer for all of you who posted here that you all find healing, through art, through each other, and otherwise. Bless you all.
tkayolson2 : @abstracters_anonymous @oshamey Your kind words are so very appreciated.
tkayolson2 : #newhomework10 #blendiferous
realgenius : Blessings on you! I watched my mother die in 2007 and to this day think of her and cry for her loss. Not mine, hers. She missed so much due to my truly evil sister and her husband. I'm so amazed and admire yours and @booksandshit art, story and journey to wholeness, your art amazes and inspires me. My mother was an artist, she taught me that there is no right or wrong way to draw, paint or photograph. You just do! If its pleasing to your eye others will take away from it what they want or need. I'm delighted I found you thru @pedraterra , I love good art and I think I've found a new niche!!!! Thank you🙏
sugarama : Wow, you have been on quite a journey! Always look forward and be the best you can be, in all struggles there is a lesson to find...

matuk1 : No such problems since using the app, it can be funny when using the camera, found it best to just use the camer roll images.

gunnelsvensson : Wonderful! Very good! What is phonto?
karibaskets : @gunnelsvensson #phonto is the free app I used to add the words. Lots of font and customization options!
karibaskets : How fun to discover a #photocontestswords the day after I added my firsts
gunnelsvensson : Thank you!
karibaskets : this is me -- #a_a_workinprogress When asked to edit a self portrait that tells people who I am, this covers many of the points - a gardener and lover of architecture and design, a photographer/artist who is more comfortable remaining in the shadows while her art goes public
matuk1 : Fantastic silhouette 😃 is that a fav photo of yours on the wall

nefelim : I'm not sure if I get that cubism stuff but from my view it looks like you got it haven't start my cubism jet a bit scary and I don't got any good idea what I shall do. But I hope it comes to me soon
fredragland_ru : @nefelim I'll be watching for yours! 👍
addy76 : Very interesting😃👍
truffin : @fredragland_ru Yes, this is a very interesting pic.. I had to spin it around a few times because I see something different when at an angle👍@nefelim just creat an image as usual & break it up then put it back 2gether..u'll be surprised at ur results😄😄hope that help sparks ur creativity😉
abstracters_anonymous : Very nice @fredragland_ru boy do i hate giving critiques! Thanks @truffin for jumping on board with these! I was looking at my own attempt and saw it would br better for me to try to flatten out the images/ get rid of shadows. Thats the only thing Ihave to say for yours.
tymejumper : That's really awsome!!!!
fredragland_ru : @addy76 @truffin @kaprice20 Thank you! 💐💐💐
kikimstq : Well done! I do love the colors and texture. My only comment would be to try not to fit it so nicely in the box/frame on all edges... Does it make sense?
abstractbydesign : @kikimstq agreed. Im workimg on my next edit now :$
abstractbydesign : #a_a_cubistedit after all that work i still think i like this one better so ill enter it too :)
