HeartbrokenTheres no easy way to ever say that a family member has passed away, but thats what I find myself doing all over again not 6 months after we lost my dad.
My father-in-law Steve passed away on the 11th of June after a very hard fight against prostrate cancer and Lee ReapingFields and I are devastated by his loss. Words can not ever express how our fathers influence and guide us and to loose both of them in so short a time leaves a hole in our hearts which will never be filled.
We were so lucky that both dad's were able to be at the wedding.
On Friday we traveled to France to visit my French family and to scatter my dads ashes on the summit of the Baou just north of Vence by Nice on fathers day. My dad now has the most amazing view looking out over the village where his mum grew up towards the coast but its hard to know his resting place is so far away.
Steves funeral is on the 1st July - so

Photomanipulation Contest - ZodiacHi, everyone!
So, it's time for another photomanip contest!
The theme of this one is the zodiac. It is one often used; however, rather than just focusing on the star zodiac (Aries, Capricorn, Aquarius, etc.), I thought it would be interesting to incorporate other types of zodiacs. I have found pages that give information on some of the more well-known ones (however, you are welcome to dig as deep as you'd like and go further than the ones shown below):
Astrological zodiac: http://www.whats-your-sign.com/zodiac-signs-and-meanings.html
Celtic Tree: http://www.whats-your-sign.com/celtic-tree-astrology.html
Egyptian zodiac: http://www.astrologyoftheancients.com/egyptian-astrology/
You are welcome to incorporate more than one zodiac into your entry (in fact, you're encouraged to!).
For example, I'm an Aquarius, born in the Year of the Dragon, and my Celtic Tree is Rowan - I could use all of those elements if I
The New Millenium 8,200 FeatureBut but... isn't the new millenium the year 2000? Well yes. So... why 8200? Because 8200 is the number of points the we are sharing with the winners of the The New Millenium contest at CRPhotomanipulation.
Oh, but you're already taking part... You're not? Why aren't you? You still have 12 days to make an entry!!
Here's a little reminder of what the contest is about:
The New Millennium
The theme clearly calls for science fiction entries, but it can stand for many things:
What do you associate with the year 2000? If you are old enough, what expectations did you have of the new millennium when you were young? Do you have any specific childhood memories?
On the other hand, where do you see us and our Earth in the year 3000? Will our planet still be the same? Are we fighting yet another war? Will nature finally strike back? What technological advances can we expect?
So many possibilities that only depend on your apocalyptic vision
Independent Photomanipulators. Marquise-des-Angels
I'm pleased to introduce a new feature series that I will be doing for our group, Independent-Manips. This series will highlight some really great DeviantArtists who create photomanipulations from only their own stock photos and resources. This practice is becoming more and more popular in the photomanipulation community; in fact, using your own resources is the wave of the future. It gives the artist a lot more artistic freedom both during the actual creative process and afterward, when it's time to consider whether to sell the art or use it commercially.
Today, we are featuring Marquise-des-Angels
a Russian artist with a knack for creating beautiful color harmonies and using fantastic composition in her work. Through her art, she takes something ordinary, such as a leaf or a flower, and creates something extraordinary from it, such as a fairy's resting place. I hope you will
Artistic WarriorsI recently read a very endearing journal that focused on something I find very important.
There's about 8 billion people in the entire world. Each one of us set apart from the next
by only one thing...the fact that we are all unique in our special way. While we may share
a common interest with others, we have our own tastes, our own likes and dislikes, and we
each know exactly what it is that brings our spirit out to play.
I enjoy art. I live for art. It has been a passion of mine since I was a very young girl. I use to
doodle on every coloring book I owned until I started school, then it was notebooks and...well...
the occasional textbook. When I was 8 years old, my world fell apart. I suffered from
a broken family that was far beyond repair. While most kids living with parental separation
were fought over by their parents, I was abandoned by mine. Left to the care of the state, and
not even given visitation. I was moved from the home of one stranger to anothe

I'm Jaimie, but my friends in "real life" and online call me Jade.
I have a Ph.D. in public health. My work takes a lot of my time, but in my free time I enjoy creating art and spending time with friends and family. My best friend is a golden retriever; my two-legged best friend is amazing, too.
Here's my goofy golden:
When I can find the time, I enjoy photomanipulation and dabble in painting with acrylics. My favorite styles of photomanipulation are fantasy and emotional, but I love all art that is done creatively and with heart.
My personal favorites are the color red and anything Halloween-related.
