Welcome to Photo Art Friday!
This virtual gallery is for anyone who wishes to showcase their digital photo art in a friendly forum. We always have an optional theme and the one for March is "Abstract Flower(s)". If you have another piece of photo-art you are wanting to showcase, you are always welcome to do so!
Even though the Inlinkz link-up button will activate, at the bottom of this post, Thursday, March 6th at 11:00 EST I am putting up this post early (Wednesday) so that you can familiarize yourself with some of the details about the new voting option.
However, before we proceed with our virtual photo art showcase, allow me to tell you that all texture sets in my shops are discounted by 25% for the rest of the month of March! The discount is automatically applied to your total purchase. No discount code needed.
Even though my ad images say the sale begins March 7th, it is already in effect as of March 5th!
For the first time in the history of Photo Art Friday, you are being invited to cast a vote for the submission that most caught your attention - your Photo Art Fav.
'Favorite' does not mean you vote for the one you think is the 'best' (if there even is any 'best'), but for the one that most grabbed your attention, that made you smile, that tickled your fancy.
The submission that receives the most 'fav' votes will receive a mini-mini set of two of my textures. You can read about it all here.
May I suggest we vote for some one else's photo art and not our own? Of course, you are free to do as you wish. The votes are anonymous.
There is an option where Inlinkz will show how many votes each thumbnail is getting during the voting period. I have chosen to disable that option. I'm concerned about how those who do not receive any votes in a particular month may feel if the vote tallies are visible under the thumbnail. If you would prefer to have that option enabled, let me know in the comments and if there are enough of you, I will reconsider doing so for next month's edition of PAF.
Since you get to see my photo art in this post, I do not link up. This means you cannot vote for me. I consider your comments my 'vote' and I don't really need any textures anyway! ;)
Here's my piece of abstract flower photo art:
One of my textures applied to a section of a bouquet of flowers. Love the light in it!
The next edition of Photo Art Friday will be April 4th to 6th.
The optional theme for April will be:
Selfie: a photo you take of yourself
Quirky: unconventional, playful, unusual, bizarre, unorthodox, surprising, peculiar, strange, different
If you fiercely guard your anonymity, you can camouflage your selfie to your heart's content. Let's just have a little fun. You have a month to ruminate about this and experiment with your version of quirky selfie ART. I can't wait to see the creative, artsy 'portraits' you come up with!!!
I think we should trademark the term "Quirky Selfie" just for use on Photo Art Friday!!! :-)
If you take a few selfies soon, you will have a lot of time to play with them in your editing program. Save your edits and you will have a few to choose from when it is time to link up next month. Other quirky ideas will surely occur during the month. I bet I'm going to be able to hear some of your giggling across the miles! :)
