Heather | 8271 comments I just commented in the thread Comments from the Moderator in which I stated that I had rearranged the folders. For some reason, though I had moved this folder closer to the top, it isn't showing on my group page. So I wanted to let you know that it is here!

And now that I have brought attention to it, I want to invite more of our talented members to share their work!

Heather | 8271 comments oh, now that I posted a new comment, the group is showing toward the top now. I guess I just had to 'restart' a discussion here for the folder to move up. Cool!

Okay I'm waiting for your additions!

Deborah Ideiosepius | 136 comments lol. It is funny, at work today I was discussing art with one of our pathologists (I work in a lab) and we agreed that it required a high level of chutzpah to exhibit ones art and open oneself up to criticism.

That is not why I am offering words instead of images though, I will have to wait for a sunny day to take some photos.


message 4: by Heather, Moderator (new)

Heather | 8271 comments I think that's true, though. One would have to be confident enough in oneself to exhibit his or hew own work for all to see (and criticize).

But I look forward to your photos, Deborah!

Deborah Ideiosepius | 136 comments Thanks, I am a pretty insipid photographer myself, I will have to wait for a day with good light, when I can conscript my sister into photography duties. I will get there though.

As a former exhibiting artist and present published writer, I can reassure you. All you have to do is remember that people are criticizing something you made, and not criticizing you yourself.

Ying Ying (yingyingshi) | 75 comments I agree with Ruth. In addition, a criticism is only an offer; it is up to you to take it or not.


message 8: by Heather, Moderator (new)

Heather | 8271 comments Ruth and Ying Ying are very wise.


message 9: by Ying Ying (new)

Ying Ying (yingyingshi) | 75 comments Ruth is indeed very wise.

As to me...Heather, you are so kind with your praise! Thank you very much, warm-hearted, open-minded and creative moderator ;-)

message 14: by Heather, Moderator (new)

Heather | 8271 comments Thank you Jeff!

Yes, there is a thread for that but if you posted there and we missed it, shame on us! I’m glad you drew our attention here.

Thank you for your introduction. And welcome… awhile back! Glad to have you amongst us!

Jeff Roland | 3 comments Thank you so much Heather.. you are very kind. Best from France. I m new on goodreads as an author and must admit i feel a bit lost . haha.


message 16: by Heather, Moderator (new)

Heather | 8271 comments I just now found the time to read the introduction you put with your book to which the link you posted takes us.

I like how you said “Let your mind tell you, and see how your souls deep inside responds.” That sums up art in a nutshell, really.

Great intro to the book! I must say, that before reading the book’s synopsis, I actually thought it was about art in the universe! I am so wrong there!
I hope others will take a few minutes to read what you had to say.

Best of luck with your book!
