|All dreamers welcome here. We all have our own set of dreams just as we all have our own way of making art. This is a home for those just beginning and those already well on their way. Here's hoping all our dreams become reality.|
Anyone can join! We do not examine your gallery first. Just click on the join button and you're in. All skill levels and forms of art are welcome.
Please submit only your own works to our gallery.
Members are allowed to submit 6 works each day. To submit work to our gallery, you must be a member of the group.
Make sure to submit your work to the correct folders. Our folders are set up much like DA submit categories to make things easier. For anything you are unsure where to submit, we have a Misc. folder. If it needs to be moved our admins can do that for you from there.
The Featured folder is where a different member will be highlighted each week. The featured artist will be chosen at random each week from our active members. Please do NOT submit your art to this folder, but instead submit it to the gallery folder it belongs in.
Please remember we have a wide age variety here, so use Mature Filters as necessary. This keeps the group a environment for all members and locations.
If you would like to see us create a specific folder please send a note. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
If you have any problems or suggestions, please send a note to myself or the other Admins. We will reply and fix the issue as soon as possible.
Thank you all for being part of this dream!
Nightmares and ThunderstormsThe rain had been coming down all night long, rapping out a constant beat on the roof, lulling everyone in the house to sleep, only to have the thunder clap over head around two in the morning. It shook the cabin, making Elizabeth jump awake at the sound, her heart hammering quickly in her throat as she looked around the room in a panic. Her room was nothing but darkness, only lighting up with the sky flashed, letting her make out the silhouette of Kat's sleeping form in the bed next to her's. She took deep gulping breaths, shivering badly as her chest tightened making her wing tremble tautly, her other bare shoulder starting to ache.Nightmares and Thunderstorms by jackofalltrades0097
It hadn't always been like this. She could remember before her accident, storms were just an excuse to go out and be reckless. Her and the others from her first flock would let the wind scoop them up and toss them around in open areas, and it was almost a game. She knew she shouldn't have been doing it that night, the weather was s
Clipped - (Flightless side story)The dry air pumping through the small RV was barely enough to keep it cool as William drove down the empty road. It carved through the Texas hill country, the sun shimmering off the black top in the heat. Mid summer here wasn’t like mid summer back home in Colorado, where the highest it got was eighty, and he was definitely feeling it. Pushing his blond hair out of his eyes as he drove, he wiped the sweat off his hand onto the seat, turning the air up more.Clipped - (Flightless side story) by jackofalltrades0097
He wished he had thought about this before he agreed to buy such a piece of junk. The salesman even warned him that these older models weren’t worth the trouble, but this was supposed to be just a one way trip in this tin can, and the he was going to fly back. Not the way he wanted to fly, but still. It was going to be better than his road trip in this piece of junk.
“We’ve got another hour to go.” He said, glancing over his shoulder, his passenger sitting in the back in silence, “You excite
Flightless || PROLOGUEIt was funny how one week could change so much in a person's life. Kaitlin tried not to think about how her world would never be the same again, but driving in silence, with nothing but her windshield wipers slapping across her window to keep her company left her doing just that.Flightless || PROLOGUE by jackofalltrades0097
She wished she could just turn back the clock to the previous week, back when everything made sense. The only way to sort any of it out was to just make a list of things she had lost, and a list of what she had now. She was feeling very glass half empty, with most of what she had now being something she didn't want in the first place.
'Last week,' she started in her head, 'I was graduating college, had a stable relationship with the man of my dreams, and an internship for a job I could see myself working in for years. This week-'
"How much longer do we have?" a tired voice from the backseat interrupted her thoughts.
She didn't look at him as she tightened her grip on the steering wheel of her jeep, staying
The MoviesAshley sat in a movie theater, her feet resting on the back of the red chair, watching the movie in front of her. She had brought popcorn, the movie popcorn, of course, which set you back a small fortune to have the delight of tasting $1 worth. She smiled at the cost of the popcorn, and the nagging couple over her shoulder. One lady sitting there quietly nodding and saying, not a word, her companion, talking at a great rate, in tones about subjects that were, to her bland and benign. For a minute the lady did not stop, her bellowing voice producing waves across the whole theater. Ashley sat there listening, hoping that she would not have to turn around and tell this lady to politely be quiet or worse.The Movies by tinaaw
Ushers moved up and down the seats. It appeared the movie was full to capacity. Their lights, flipping backwards and forwards across the darkened theater. With a slight shove, Ashleys' popcorn ended up on her lap. She had no companion, she just wanted an escape from the hospital, and esca

Behind The LensHello everybody, welcome to my darkened realm You're used to me sharing various kinds of journals, so hopefully you will like this brand new concept :iconnerdplz: Once in a while I'll be interviewing a friend whom I find special in one way or another You'll get to know a bit about them, their art and what makes them stand out to me.Behind The Lens by TheDarkenedBride
Luckily the first person I'm going to introduce you to is a great guy who made it so much easier for me to come up with good questions. He has a sparkling sense of humour, he likes Van Morrison mushrooms :iconshroomplz: and on the other hand he doesn't like me thinking too much about everything... well, too bad for him :iconpotatodanceplz: Last but not least he's a fabulous photographer (he tends to be modest about his skills, then better don't listen to him )
Please welcome :iconbuntcone:
:iconthedarkenedbride: You said you started taking photography seriously about 2
Help a friend get over the loss of her pet/CONTESTArtists, please please read this:Help a friend get over the loss of her pet/CONTEST by Malleni-Stock
I want to share this contest with you and it would really mean a lot to me personally if you took part,
and it would mean even more to NarsisBlack, a talented artist and great member of our community.
She has lost her beloved cat these days in a horrible way and is going through some hard times now.
To get over the loss easier and have some nice memories, she asked for some support to hold a contest.
Some people reacted to that in a really rude, respectless and insensitive way which made me really angry and
disappointed about some people in the community.
Please help her get over this bad experience and take part in the contest.
The task is simple - manipulate one of the photos of her
little 'Zazzles' to create a beautiful memory of him.
She is taking prize donations as well (:

This article discusses the world of online MOOC's – Learning online – a personal look at two current MOOC's and what they offer your art.
I have recently been fortunate enough to have discovered online MOOC's – Learning online from top professionals in many fields. I learnt this through my social network connections and had some spare time, and thought – "It's Free" I will give it a go.
I signed up for my first online class last September, called Modern and Contemporary Poetry from University of Pennsylvania or 'Modpo" as it was happily referred to by the other 20,000 plus students completing the course online.
The course was free.
