Abstract and Surreal DDs for December

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 31, 2011, 6:00 AM
I think we're much smarter than we were.
Everybody knows that abstract art can be art, 
and most people know that they may not like it, 
even if they understand there's another purpose to it.
(Roy Lichtenstein)

Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only 
what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision.
(Salvador Dalí)

Thank you for sharing your fantastic artwork!

My apologies to those of the featured artists who had to deal with lots of ignorant and hateful comments.
I've been told again that I'm retarded and incompetent, so I guess that I'm doing everything right. :B

Happy New Year everyone!

It's a tough job - featuring the lesser known and lesser appreciated. I have been honoured to pass the reigns over to someone who I know is fantastic at picking out the best of the best :B Haters gonna hate!

Too much honour, dear, too much honour... :blush:

Thank you very much for your encouragement and support, Katy! :heart: I'm not sure if I should pity the featured artists who have received these hateful and ignorant comments or if I should rather pity the haters and ignorants for their lack of imagination.
:shrug:

I wish you a very happy New Year! :glomp:

Do not apologize.
Also choose artwork to create a collection of art
is an art form, because it requires artistic sensibility
not only expertise in art.
So no one can be accused of incompetence, when he
chooses according to its sensitivity and personal taste.

No one can exactly be retared or incompetent. They're just words =) But to the people who call others that, they mean nothing and don't know anything about kindness.

Happy New Year!

Thank you very much for your kind and encouraging comment, dear Jenna! :heart:

I can deal with these comments, I'm just afraid that some of the featured artists can't. It has happened in the past, that Deviants deactivated their account after receiving hateful comments on a DD feature. :(

you keep doing what you're doing love. the naysayers aren't worth the time or effort, and i truly hope no one else deactivates. this community is about support and positive energy, and i plan on doing my part to keep it that way. :tighthug:
