:iconcuteheartzblue: Welcome to Unframed-Nature's Special Edition Article, Vol. 1 :iconcuteheartzblue:

:iconlovethesunshineplz: MAIN PURPOSE :iconlovethesunshineplz:

In Addition to our FIVE original folders that we've had since the beginning of 2012,
and the News Folder that we added in the middle of 2012,
we added FIVE Special Folders to our Group, at the beginning of 2013.


The main reason we did this, was to bring a deeper meaning to our Group, as far as our love and concerns for Nature.

With special news articles after every three months, which will reflect the work submitted to these folders, we are able to help share and spread awareness about particular issues that have an impact on Nature, which we would likely care about given the original idea for this group, to begin with.  If you joined this group it is because you love and care about Nature, and therefore you probably care about what happens to Nature-- after all, we are talking about everyone's common home, of Earth.

There are many things we can do, to actively help and support the wide variety of environmental issues that we face right in our immediate living areas, knowing that each of us are like a thread, within the WHOLE tapestry, and what one individual does in action, affects the WHOLE, like a ripple from a stone thrown into a lake.



Become a part of the solutions, and find ways to connect with others who feel similarly, and let's work together!

The following bodies of work, are from our FIVE Special Folders, from JANUARY, FEBRUARY, and MARCH of 2013.

Each folder grouping, while with some overlapping general concepts, is meant to reflect and express its own particular message.

Thank you Members and Administrators, alike, who have worked with these folders, both in submitting work, and accepting work to these folders.

Without you, we would not have these important things to share!

The animals presented in this folder, may STILL be available for adoption!
If they are in your area, or even if you could travel to the area, feel free to inquire about these beautiful deserving animals. I am sure these artists would be happy to assist you. :aww:
If they are already adopted, there are certainly many more wonderful animals waiting for their FUR-EVER homes.

Please CLICK on individual images above to find locations of the animals, and websites of the facilities!

And don't forget to also check for animal adoption facilities near you!

Here is one great way to do that:

You can also visit and make a general donation to:

Feel free to do your own research, in order to find ways to help!

Animals of many kinds, not just cats and dogs, find their way to various types of humane societies, pounds, and shelters. Many have had extremely challenging beginnings in their lives, and are waiting for the right people to come along and give them the chance they deserve to belong to a loving family, who will be patient, and understanding with them.

Some animals wait for years in these facilities, and with the passage of time, their chances of being adopted decrease quite a bit, as it is most common to want to adopt kittens or puppies.

Such facilities very often bear the huge burden of limited space, and therefore overcrowding, making it difficult on employees, volunteers, and alas the animals themselves.  With every adoption, space is created in order to bring in and save another animal from starving on the streets, from illness, from reproducing and making even more homeless animals.

:note: If you are someone who does this kind of adoption work often, and you want to submit a couple MORE than the TWO/MONTH limit to this folder, simply NOTE the Group with the image of the animal up for adoption, and we WILL request it! :nod:

:note: If you know OTHER people on dA who take photos or otherwise create images of particular animals which are up for adoption, PLEASE direct them to our Group, and to THIS folder specifically!
OR, you can NOTE the Group, with the Artist and we will go check their galleries to request the appropriate work.

This folder ALSO contains educational and promotional Artwork, in efforts to encourage adoption, or raise money for animals in NEED, submitted January 2013 - March 2013:

Endangered Animals, Jan., Feb., Mar., 2013:…

Besides doing right by our domesticated animals, who often have various great needs, and who are waiting for families to adopt them and love them,
We cannot forget our Wild Animal counterparts, who are endangered, or in danger of becoming extinct, due to different reasons. Most of the time, the reasons have to do with some kind of human involvement, such as encroachment on their natural habitats, deforestation, or directly killing or hunting such animals- and NOT for food!

These animals are integral parts of our life on earth and the balance of our eco-system.  But more so, they also deserve our care, concern, and our protection!  There are plenty of ways to get involved, and to help preserve the beautiful animals of our planet! The first step, is AWARENESS! :heart:

This folder contains work submitted by artists during January - March 2013, which reflect certain animals which, to the best of our knowledge, are considered endangered or critically endangered:

I was shoked, as I´ve seen on the TV, that short movie, that says there are only 3,200 (free) Tigers left on earth!
So two years ago I started to search for informations and do some researches. There are two main reasons, of tiger disappearing :
1. Illegal Trade of Tiger body parts
2. Deforestation
So I´ve started donating money to several organisations, who are saving wild animals. But it doesn`t felt like I´ve done enough.
I talked to some of my friends and people in my school, and recognized, that It´s not like they don`t care about this problem, they just didn´t know about it!
So I´ll paint some tigers and hang up this pictures in the toilets at my school. The text on the pictures will ask people to use both sides of toilet paper, to suspend the deforestation on our earth.
Because, cmon, it´s only toilet paper! We use it for our sh**! so there is no need to use meters of toile

Environmental Protection Work, Jan. Feb., Mar., 2013:…

While these five special folders, do relate with each other and overlap in certain ways, I feel that this folder speaks MOST directly to Earth Day!  

The submissions below to this particular special and important folder, would also be considered GREAT examples of contest submissions to the "Earth Day, Every Day" Contest. [Though, so would many of the above animal works.]

I cannot thank these artists enough for participating here, because their messages speak loudly and clearly about our planetary issues, and the obviousness of what we should NOT do, and what we SHOULD do to and for Earth!

Humans, Architecture, & Transportation in NATURE, Jan., Feb., Mar., 2013:…

Human beings and our actions are not lost on the impact and the potential impact that we have on our planet.

Certainly, as we obviously exist, and co-exist with all other life on Earth, we jostle to make a place and a space for ourselves and our families.  And of course, we seek to be happy and to enjoy our lives, as much as possible.

And yet, in so doing, we have a very specific responsibility to all other life around us.  How we choose to interact and treat animals and plants, and the Earth as a whole, does directly come back to affect us as humans.

So, it actually does behoove us to tread with care and kindness in our efforts to peacefully co-exist with all other life forms.  If we want our future fellow-humans, such as our own children and grandchildren, and children in general to live in a clean environment, and one that is humane to all creatures, we need to act accordingly right now!

For example, as far as architecture is concerned, of course humans need homes in which to live, but, it is all about WHAT we build, as far as materials go, HOW we go about it, and WHERE we build.  We need to do so with MUCH thought, and consideration to the land on which we build, and what is already living there.

It is a matter of striving to strike a balance between ALL living things, which will result in positive outcomes for us ALL both in the present, AND in the future long-run.

As far as transportation, of course human beings need various transportation to get us from place to place, but it helps to be mindful of what kind of vehicles we drive. Are there some that are more environmentally beneficial than others? HOW and WHERE we build roads, highways, and bridges is also very significant.

What about, when could we carpool with others?  When could we take public transportation?  When could we instead ride a bike or walk?

After all, our natural resources are NOT unlimited. They are very limited, and with overuse, we pollute the environment in incredible ways with transportation, alone!

These are simply things to think about with regard to Transportation in Nature.

How we, as humans directly interact within Nature, is very important, too. Sure, we should be able to walk along a beach, hike a mountain trail, walk to a destination in town, but again HOW we do that, matters.  For example,
there is no need to throw our trash out while we are out enjoying nature. It's not only harmful, but it's simply disrespectful.

How we interact with our pets, and domestic animals, and animals at zoos, etc., is of utmost importance. How we do interact and NOT interact with animals in the wild, is equally important.  We have the power to make things better for our animal friends, simply with proper care, treatment, respect, and a whole lot of common sense.

Animals do have needs, thoughts, and feelings, too!

Below is a SAMPLE of works from this folder, which reflect interactions of Humans, Architecture, and Transportation within NATURE!

This collection is much larger than the first three, so I apologize that I cannot include all of them.

Still Life, Conceptual, Abstract, Fantasy NATURE, Jan., Feb., Mar., 2013:…

This folder is a little more "Just For Fun" -- however, I strongly believe that Nature depicted as Still Life, Concepts, Abstracts, Fantasy, and even Crafts, is completely different way to view, understand and interact with Nature. It is a way to think about and visualize Nature in a uniquely creative and beautiful way!

Below is a SAMPLE of works from this folder, which reflect Nature in terms of Still Life, Conceptual, Abstract, Fantasy and Crafts!

This collection is much larger than the first three, so I apologize that I cannot include all of them.

:iconheartcandleplz: Happy 7th BIRTHDAY to UNFRAMED-NATURE! :iconheartcandleplz:

This is one of the oldest Groups, [or Clubs, as they were called "back then"] here on dA.
It was Founded April 26th, 2006, but not by me, as I hadn't even joined dA yet.

When I joined dA in March of 2008, this group was the first "Club" that I did join, a few months later.
For that reason alone, this has always been a Group, that was very special and dear to me. :aww:

Then in early 2009, the Founder began to let go of the reigns little by little, and asked me if I would run the Group, but as a Co-Founder, and I said yes, but of course I was NOT alone!  I had great help from a lot of Admins., from nearly that time onward, many of which, are STILL part of our Admin., Team, TODAY!

Nearing the end of 2011, the Founder had eventually simply left dA all together, and some Members and Admins., went to dA's Help Desk, and soon I was officially placed as Founder, and soon after THAT, we were made SUPERGROUP, by quite a few generous and helpful Members and Admins.! :rose:

It's almost a year and a half since that time, and we and have grown and changed in really wonderful and amazing ways!
While quite a few of our current active Members, have actually been a part of this Group/Club, since before I was,
there are other brand new active Members, who have just joined, and everyone in between!

No matter WHEN you joined this Group, we SO much appreciate you, your beautiful submissions, and all of the awesome support and encouragement that you give to Unframed-Nature, in SO many different ways.  


:iconbluebplz: This Birthday Celebration is for ALL Members and Admins. of: :iconunframed-nature: :iconbluebplz:

No matter WHEN you joined, it is because of every Member and Admin. that this group has been here as long as it has.


To celebrate your positive participation, your sensational support, and your very hard work,
let's have a feature from... none other than, THE FEATURED FOLDER!

These are simply random selections...

:iconyaayplz: Fun With The Featured Folder:… :iconyaayplz:

:iconjoyloveplz: Don't Forget About Our CURRENT CONTEST! :iconjoyloveplz:

Earth Day, Every Day!

:iconearthplz: :thumb360304022: :iconearthplz:

It is also recognized that this very first Special Edition Article, has been published just a few days after Earth Day, which is always celebrated internationally on April 22nd, of every year since 1970.

But the idea of the contest is that Earth Day should be EVERY Day- and not just something to celebrate and learn about once a year.  Rather, it is a call to keep Earth Day and its call to actively seek out what is hurting our planet and how to live our lives each day in ways that benefit and help the Earth, rather than to do harm, or even do nothing.

For BIG prizes, this contest encourages artists to create something meaningful about caring for planet Earth, in some kind of way.

Read for the RULES and the PRIZES, Here:
:iconearthplz: :thumb360304022: :iconearthplz:

Only TEN DAYS LEFT, from the time that this article published!

So get your entry in, as soon as you can!

:iconbeatingheartplz: Thanks and Gratitude :iconbeatingheartplz:

I can't thank you all enough, active Members and Admins., alike who put their time, effort, and support into this group in a WIDE variety of ways. :rose:

This group is unique and special for many reasons, and it takes a whole team to make it as truly AWESOME as it is!


Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!


This is a quarterly News Feature, as the folders highlighted run every three months.
So, for this first volume, work from Jan. Feb. & March 2013, is discussed and featured here in April.

Volume 2, will reflect work from these folders but from April, May, and June, and therefore is due to come out in JULY!

Thank you so much for everyone's participation, help, and support!
