Welcome to this new article series that aims to feature a few artists you might have not seen before.
Feel free to suggest artists in a comment below :heart:

Juupion's gallery is full of gorgeous creations with color and character.
 Hotspring by Juupion Memory Keeper by Juupion   
Peace by Juupion

Bailey II by M0THart

Northstar76 has beautiful scenes of natural glory, it's easy to get lost in this gallery!
Lorien by Northstar76 In good faith by Northstar76 
Nostalgia 2 by Northstar76

nawkaman's pieces are powerful and creative, showcasing powerful ideas in a few lines.

IfWe can
draw lines and give them names
like elements
as they are discovered
Or etch into our skins
this soloecal desire
until it is impossible to tell
where words stop
and life begins.
I would
Find a common rhythm that includes
you in my arms, my hands
and lungs and thoughts
tracing the outline of you
entangled with me
colliding like two lost particles
locked in a shared gravity
drifting through the vacuum
of space.
  I could.
Exhale, and
sentence structure.
  In Search of PunctuationThe exhausted traveler hung his
on its hook, dragging his eyes across
                  and through the curves
  looking for any signs of sharpness
 or flatland meadows; somewhere
                      he might rest.
         He found nothing but
           rhythmic swells and
the faint hands of an impresario
              crafting the journeyrock
                         below his feet.
                     "No matter,
    I suppose." But his cellular
        structure was ringing
               in his ears,
     demanding audience                & sleep.

Hopefully you found someone new to see!
Thank you for looking and I hope you have a great day!

Praising Life Project

Praising Life Project
Praising Life ProjectWelcome to the Praising Life Project

It's really hard for anyone to stay positive all the time. I definitely agree with that.
However, when things go wrong, it's so easy to forget how much you've been blessed. It's amazing that we have the internet, people who care, and hope...
Although there is a lot of bad in this world, there is also beautiful joy and countless things to appreciate. :love:
And that makes me praise life.
The memories, the laughter, the joy, the hugs through hard times.
In this life, we only have one chance! I think one of our life purposes is to spread love throughout this world and leave it in better shape than before we were here. 

It would be much appreciated if you help spread the word! (:+fav: & Comment!)
