“Painting is poetry which is seen and not heard, and poetry is a painting which is heard but not seen.”
Leonardo da Vinci

Your sleek slender form curves in all the right places.
So smooth that your hands just find exactly where to go.
With a mouth that opens spills your hearts desire.
Tastes like heaven so early.
You are my only lexapro.
Ahhh… my lovely coffee mug.

Make Professional Animated Videos. Making a Video Shouldn’t Be a Drag. It Should Be Drag & Drop. GoAnimate’s mission is to enable businesses, schools, and individuals to make videos — quickly and easily. Videos could and should be everywhere. Businesses use them to explain complex topics, train employees, or just show their soft side. Teachers and students use them to exercise higher-order learning skills, such as creativity and critical thinking, in the classroom. What’s the problem? Making a video is hard. People perceive it as one of those black-box processes they can’t even wrap their head around. If they think it through (most mentally run screaming before even getting this far), they think it’s going to take a long time, cost a lot, and be really, really hard.
Cool Photos On 1x
Very cool photos. What is 1x? Do you have what it takes to be published in one of the world’s most exclusive art galleries? This is not your average photo site. All photos on 1x are selected by a team of professional gallery curators. Just like in a real photo gallery. Our curators have experience from well-known institutions such as Sotheby’s and Tate Modern Art. Yes, standards are high, but don’t let that discourage you. We believe that everyone has an inner photographer, just waiting to be discovered. Learning is very important for us and we provide many tools that will help you take your photography to the next level. In our critique forum, especially appointed senior critics write expert feedback on your photos to help you improve and we have the largest collection of quality tutorials online. Getting published on 1x is a great achievement. Many photographers whose works now hang in art galleries, were once discovered on 1x. It’s no coincidence that Art directors, book editors and magazines all over the world use photos from 1x photographers. Every day 350 million photos are uploaded on Facebook alone. 1x is something different. We publish only a small amount of photos every day, giving them the exposure they deserve. One million unique viewers visit 1x every month, because they know that we only have the very best. Where do you want to be seen?

Since it was founded in 1870, The Met has always aspired to be more than a treasury of rare and beautiful objects. Every day, art comes alive in the Museum’s galleries and through its exhibitions and events, revealing both new ideas and unexpected connections across time and across cultures.”

Michael Bach made this site dedicated to optical illusions. Bend your mind around these creations. “Optical illusions don’t “trick the eye” nor “fool the brain”, nor reveal that “our brain sucks”, but …are fascinating! They also teach us about our visual perception, and its limitations. My selection emphasizes beauty and interactive experiments; I also attempt explanations of the visual mechanisms involved where possible.”
Deviant Art, a wonderful website that gives talent of all ages a place to post their work for the world to enjoy. There is a lot of up and coming talent here so enjoy.

Time & Life Photos
Digital photo contests on different subjects. “DPChallenge was created in January 2002 by two friends, Drew Ungvarsky (drewmedia) and Langdon Oliver (langdon). The original idea behind the site was for it to be a place where the two of us and a couple of our friends could teach ourselves to be better photographers by giving each other a ‘challenge’ for the week. The idea quickly took off and became much more in the months that followed. In December 2002, we released the 2nd version of our site with a number of new features, including concurrent challenges. We also added site membership as a way to support our ever-growing physical and time demands.”
