:thanks: Thank you to my very dear friend Jo :iconjamminjo: for: RECOGNIZING EXCELLENCE VOL 2Hello Everyone :wave:
 RECOGNIZING EXCELLENCE is a new weekly feature to recognize one artist that stands out within our deviantART Community. This deviant must be an outstanding deviant within the community, someone who cares about other deviants and the deviantART Community! This deviant can be anyone, anywhere on deviantART. I believe it is important to recognize outstanding deviants for their time and dedication to our deviantART Community.
RECOGNIZING EXCELLENCE VOL 2. Dedicated to TeaPhotography
TeaPhotography helps to administrate several groups Unframed-Nature, PetPicks, CloseToNature, Profits-For-Animals, DevNews, dAWishingWell and several other groups. Additionally, TeaPhotography has successfully run "The Shelter Project-Cats and Dogs" for two years. I truly appreciate all she does to help administrate groups, her dedication to e

:thanks: Thank you to my sweet friend Quolia :iconquolia: for: Spreading the dA Love: Volume 16:heart: :iconGoldendAplz: :heart: :iconGoldendAplz: :heart:
As the title suggests, this news article series aim to promote wonderful aspects of the deviantART community, from showcasing beautiful works of art, to informing you of great groups, and to interviewing inspirational deviants. I feel so happy being part of such a wonderful community and I hope to make it better, even if it's only a little bit, by making these articles. My goal is to bring to light everything that impassions me and, hopefully, inspire you!
:squee: Showcasing Gorgeous Artwork :squee:

A showcase of art that has simply left me speechless from all genres, from digital/traditional, artisan, emoticons, fractals, etc.

What an humbling honour for me, that she would even think of me to interview...
It was a pleasure, she is TRULY a sweetheart! :aww:
Please visit her and her lovely work and activities HERE:

Hi everyone! This is a new monthly blog that will help you in finding and submitting members for Seniority and deviations as DDs! But we can't do it without your help.
:damphyr: Seniority
:iconteaphotography: TeaPhotography
Tea, apart from doing a lot of work for the Shelter Project, an outside DA activity (telling us a lot about her type of personality), is totally UNSTOPABLE... This lady is a BIG soul always helping deviants, encouraging people and giving a hand to ALL AND SUNDRY!!!! I am sure her wonderful "hands and heart" have touched a lot of lives, both at a personal level but also artistically.... Tea is a powerful force in many groups like dAWishingWell, DevNews and right here at deviantHEART! I cannot praise Tea enough... because I am sure her reputation surely follows her, and therefore my words are just what you all know.:iconPrinceFuyu: rioIu
Vincent is a deviant wi

Administrator Application for Unframed-NatureUnframed-Nature's Application for Administrative Position
Accepting Applications for Administrator Positions at Unframed-Nature is now: OPEN!
Before you apply, please know that volunteering for a large and active group here on dA, such as Unframed-Nature is a real and true commitment, which will take up some of your time on at least a weekly basis, maybe more.
Unframed-Nature is special in many ways, but from an Administrative view point, it is very special because we have always had good luck with our current Administrators, most of which have been with the Group, as Administrators, for a very long time.
We are a very friendly Team, both with each other, and with the Members, as well. This means when we do have to decline works, we do give a reason, and we are friendly about it.  It means, that upon occasion if there is something that we disagree about within the Admin. Team, we disagree nic

Thank you for an amazing Staff Appreciation Week!The dASAW 2012 has come to a close, sadly.
I would like to thank each and every deviant who participated in our events, projects, or contests, or those who donated points or volunteered their time to help plan and execute the week (starting all the way back in MAY of 2012)! :omg: 
As is the dASAW's mission, we hope that ultimately the staff of deviantART (the people who make it work smoothly  for us each and every day!) felt the love during our small but (hopefully) impacting event. :dalove: 
StaffAppreciation will be shutting down like it did last year, which means you will not be hearing much more from us until it comes time for the next Staff Appreciation Week. We hope that you had a fun time, at least, and again, we thank you greatly for participating! 
In the coming days, we will be judging contest entries and announcing the winners, distributing prizes from our events, coordinating the Secret Project 2.0 (which has now

TreeLovers :icontreelovers:
This awesome group is holding a great year-long project:
:icontreehuggerplz: Art for Trees - project:iconspringtree-1plz::iconspringtree-2plz::iconspringtree-3plz::iconspringtree-4plz::iconspringtree-4pl5:
"When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. The second best time? Today."
- Chinese proverb
2014: This is the 3rd year of the project. There are many people supporting it, featuring it in their journal and offering art. BUT... There have been NO trees planted for it in the last year (I don't count mine). So, instead of talking about it, how about getting up and actually planting a tree, if you are able to? There is a lot of wonderful art waiting for you as a reward!
Trees are important, valuable and necessary to our very existence. It's not too hard to believe that, without trees we humans would not exist on this beautiful planet. Trees are the largest and longest living organisms on earth. To grow tall the tree has become a miracle of engineering and a complex chemical factory. It is able to take water and

Also, the Founder and my friend Mirach, :iconmirachravaia:
is holding a game! WIN POINTS :points: ! :nod:
sifro. - solve the codes and win points! IMPORTANT: the login into the submmitting system currently doen't work. I'll try to fix it somehow, but until then, the "Try it without login" link still works. If you submit the solution to a cipher, it will give you a link to the next one. It just won't remember your position in the game, so better save that link, or remember the solution so you can get it again.
:new: July/7/2014 - After a year and half, we finally have a next winner! It's Dimensionwalker21, winning 360 points. Congratulations!
Dec/24/2012 - We have a next winner! It's WintersRead, winning 306 points!
Nov/11/2012 - The second winner is nuvak! He generously refused the point reward, so there is still a lot of points in the pool for the next winner!
Oct/12/2012 - We have the first winner! It's ninquetari, who wins 475 points!
The easy day was yesterday! Today, the game begins! And It's just in time for dA's birthday! :D

Ballerina ( Marching Ahead )Ballerina ( Marching Ahead )
Early in the morning
Is when the end begins
The air smells moist
Of mist and choices
New day's about to bring
Many a field shall come to waste
Instead of grains it'll only taste
New leather boots and blood and mud
When strangers reach out hands
To take rather than give
Inside their heads these voices scream
Nameless, undefined
Concealing, deceiving
Shaping and raping
The beauty that is human soul
Fooling it until it's foul
And cracked like poor drained soil
That won't feel pain
Of heavy rain
Painted with red too warm
Bonfires feed on violins
Applauding pounding drums
A ragged group of old sad clowns
Wanders from town to town
Pulling a wooden chariot
Their burden hardly breathes
Upon the stage in iron cage
A danseuse, a grey swan
Performs in fright
A joyful flight
For heroes who have won
Locked up like locket on her neck
Whatever it contains
Her eyes remember golden days
Their funeral she now celebrates
Blackberry RainBlackberry Rain
Your hands I find amid blackberry rain
Ever they wander from bitter to sweet
What if we really were destined to meet
When buying tickets on runaway train?
Your lips are mild just like soft ripened peach
Seducing my sad eyes of child forlorn
Day after day our love shall be reborn
You say; but good tends to get out of reach...
Laying my head on your shoulder to rest
Sweeping arms around me like clinging vine
You are my prayer and I am your shrine
Closed for heresy willing to infest
Your heart is where angels peacefully sleep
When world has left their wings dirty and ripped
Burdened by fear and by doubt cruelly nipped
They, caskets made for souls' secrets to keep
Your eyes like drift-wood from faraway shore
They tell me stories of days yet to come,
Of turns and corners, how they mislead some
Adherent drops and what life has in store

Repeat business, is not even all that a few of them have done, even though that's the epitome of awesome, and is direct help. But the repeat & ongoing promotions on the Journals and Profile Pages of Philippe, Jocelyne, Cheryl, Dana, Cecelia, Sandy, and Teresa, is phenomenal.
They have worked so hard to help promote, in addition to their purchases. I never could have imagined, not just awesome customers, but as if partners, throughout this whole Project. :nod:

Strawberry Decadence by Quolia Going Under  Sunlight sparkles high above me
  out of reach, rippling;
  shimmering and fleeting like
  a ribbon, beckoning.
  Minute spheres of glass ascend,
  resembling balloons escaping
  from a child's careless grasp,
  fading beyond sight.
  My throat is sealed, invisible hands
  compressing; my body accepts,
  shifting to stone and dragging
  me below.
  The moment to act is long gone and I
  let go, readily accepting and
  no longer keen on clutching
  to threads of time.
  Silence suppresses me, my eyes
  flicker then close dreamily as I
  sink further into Death's
  icy, gentle

For a walk - 022 by ThePancakey Two SeasonsIvory skin and the fresh taste of apricot,
    Flowers that blossom and yet soon, forgot.
With winter, lives are cut away...
    And yet, another year arrives in May.
Epiphanies of memories, rest deep within,
    And though you may not be aware,
      It's our choice to remember...
Young hearts so true and fair,
    Until arrives yet another December.

Special Random Artist Feature!

:bulletorange: Special Random Talented Artist Features Began in March 2009!! [Boing! Boing!]

In over three years that I've been doing this certain type of feature, I've finally featured ONE-HUNDRED Artists! I hoped this day would come! [Party]

[New] The 103rd Special Random Artist goes to my dear friend Mel :iconarte-de-junqueiro:
Feel free to visit his amazing work! Here are a few examples below:
The Question by Arte-de-JunqueiroPine Needles by Arte-de-JunqueiroCervantes I by Arte-de-Junqueiro
A rocky place IV by Arte-de-JunqueiroWashing away your woes by Arte-de-JunqueiroAn Old Place to Worship II by Arte-de-Junqueiro
With a little dusting of makeup on by Arte-de-JunqueiroTagus Sunrise II by Arte-de-Junqueiro

[Bullet; Blue] Active on dA for 1 year or more.
[Bullet; Blue] 10K page views or less.

Wanna spread some happiness by NamedaPAY IT FORWARD by luffsfromafriendEncourage others stamp by Ramen27

Page views alone do not necessarily reflect levels of creativity & talent. I think there's a lot of wonderful art/artists out there who just haven't been seen enough.
[For all the immense support and generosity that I have received since being on dA, I Pay it Forward ...]

Special Edition Feature: "Transportation"

As Summertime begins to wane, [at least in the Northern Hemisphere], the most popular travel season also begins to wind down. Last time, this section featured "Architecture & Travel"... so now, how about all the various modes of transportation, which can transport you to various destinations, be they far and abroad, or just a day trip away, while showing you all the wonders along the way?!
