Comments14/10/2017 #18 Lisa 🐝 Gallagheromgosh @Cyndi wilkins you sure do go all out and put me to shame. Why I've never been into Halloween, I'm not sure? I've been sitting here trying to call my creative mind...... wow.... it ran from me lol. Don't laugh, but the first thing that came to mind was the Realty show, "The Kardashians," maybe you could do a "Meet the Kardashian's, creepy style." It might be challenging but fun if you could pull it off. Caitlyn (formerly known as Bruce) could be the the star with Kim coming in second. You are very creative, I bet what ever you do will be fantastic! You go girl!13/10/2017 #17 Cyndi wilkins#15 That sounds like great fun @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador!!! Maybe we 'girlie bees' should plan a trip to Mardi Gras sometime in the future;-) Thanks for sharing that...I'll bet you make a grand sorceress!
#16 Thank you @Aaron 🐝 Skogen...It is quite a commitment of my time...It took two and a half hours just to get that web fastened correctly with the body and spider positioned as such so as to not pull the web down with their weight...A lot of thought goes into it so I appreciate the sentiment...I've created a monster of my own with my daughter (zipper face)...who says I need to "bloody things up" a little more...So proud of my little fledgling 'gore master!'13/10/2017 #15 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand AmbassadorI love your fun read, @Cyndi wilkins. Halloween is my favorite day of the year. Many moons ago, I went to Key West for Fantasy Fest, which is held in the last week of October. I dressed as a sorceress and I wore a wig that was so long it almost touched the ground. I was in the local parade and Jimmy Buffet was the Grand Marshall.
The costumes worn at Fantasy Fest can be very elaborate, and some take over a year to make. -http://www.fantasyfest.com/
It's a lot of fun and similar to Mardi Gras, but on a smaller scale.13/10/2017 #13 Cyndi wilkins#12 Absolutely agreed @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee...

#6 I have to give my sister credit here @Harvey Lloyd...By challenging me to put on my best creep show, she pulled me out of the 'doldrums' I had been sinking into over the past couple of years...Losing my dad had a tremendous impact on all of us...and like she said, "You're the one that carries the torch now for all of us...So let's do this thing!" That was a gift in and of itself, and it is all in great fun for the whole neighborhood!
#7 Thanks @Pascal Derrien...as you can see, I do have a rather 'twisted' side;-) A couple of years ago I rigged my front porch with all kinds of motion detected paraphernalia to scare the dickens out of the neighborhood boys that liked to get out early and grab the entire bowls of candy that folks who weren't home would leave out for the kids...You know that "just take one piece" sign doesn't work with middle school boys;-)
Anyhoo, they tried to grab my entire stash and everything on the front porch was triggered simultaneously as they lifted the bowl...As you could probably guess, candy was flying everywhere and they all ran from my house screaming bloody murder!

WilliamsSometimes I feel so blessed to have come on beBee and meeting you all. As I've grown in mind and knowledge from just interacting with the rise of intriguing questions in my head. A conversation within the self! Thank you Sara for you have been one among the few that has/is made/make me realize and immerse myself in the best process - The creative one! I hadn't dwelled deep into the concept of the self until I read the book "Trust your sense" Thanks to @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee and the realization of the self, the acceptance is the testimonial of that imagination that we can conjure up the things, that as yet, do not exist but that which we can project into the future.
"Meaning is then created by the interactions between our internal and external environments and those sensory experiences. This is the ground work that is laid for choices we make in the future as we continue to interpret and associate the information we receive" - Sara Jacobvici
I would say I am at this stage of finding meaning from the choices I choose to make. It's wonderful to be able to experience what you write. Like Shawn says "Focused and brief, yet filled with such deeply reflective and resonant information"

Focused and brief, yet filled with such deeply reflective and resonant information. It is an accomplishment to communicate with such clarity. I am truly impressed and inspired!

Thanks for this!!16/06/2017 #16 Joel Anderson@Sara Jacobovici I just love this one. It really made me think about past experiences and experiences yet to come. Organizations (and people) trying to change, adapt or innovate. How many times have I heard, "We want you to think out of the box." Most often with that comment, nobody ever explained what the box was, and as a result challenged the intent of the creative and thinking process desired. We had no reference. Not always necessary, but sometimes the context is important, in doing just that--creatively thinking out of the box. Often times the value of creativity and thinking thinking comes from life experiences over time that serve as a reference point, not necessarily the reference point within the process and help us move forward. Thank you for your insights along your 100 day journey. Creatively thinking and thinking creatively and using our senses, experiences, our bodies and physical and virtual environments to discover and "take the creative leaps and conjure up things that, as yet, do not exist." Bravo.16/06/2017 #12 Cyndi wilkinsIt is the creative process of imaging that channels use to interpret information coming from higher frequencies...When we combine these 'sensory images' with their symbolic meaning through language, we are able to develop a new dialogue...Very interesting stuff @Sara Jacobovici...looking forward to the launch of your website;-)

I thought maybe it was some weird term since my grammarly didn't pick it up as a misspelling LOL. I just made the word up, well me and Snoop Dog while we were working on his next rap song haha. I got a kick out of your fantasy of Catholics having more fun, better food etc... I think a lot of looked at Catholic girls in that way when we were younger!! The food thing, I always felt they were eating better foods than me but most of my Catholic g/friends were Italian! For some reason, I'm craving chinese food now. ;-)07/03/2017 #10 Shelley Brown#9 @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher Thanks so much for sharing my story. It's nice to be here and nice to hear from you. I don't have much time these days to read or write and hurts my soul however; I am trying to make some changes. I am not sure what Shiztwich is. If you didn't make it up, Snoop Dog did :). Happy the story made you laugh. I can't wait to catch up and read your writing. You have to let me know what the most appealing part was. For me it was that my ex let me have my own Chinese food entry and my Jewish dad made us 4 share 2 entrees. :)07/03/2017 #9 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher@Shelley Brown, It was nice to read a buzz from you, you've been missed. I loved this and had a good laugh. I secretly wanted to be a Catholic too and married one as well. It wasn't so appealing after we married and I actually became one! Have a Shiztwich on me lol.

Not for any religious thing, it's just that a girlfriend's mother made this INSANE brisket braised in Pepsi.
I loved that brisket and seriously considered marrying the girl who's mom it was. Then I realized that my love for a dish just wasn't sufficient grounds for matrimony. Besides, she couldn't cook worth a damn. Maybe I could have married her mother

because his clarification is on the sport.
Dec 24, 2016 #21
Simply a clarification : all of what we produce in our lifetimes as creatives is "artwork" not "art". Artwork is the "thing" that we work on and produce as a product which can be purchased. Whether "art" emerges from that product is another matter all together. Painters, sculptors, dancers, writers all want to produce, one day, that humungously important work that reaches out beyond our navels and touches and moves others to the point where they are transfixed by the power emanating from that creation we have made. That's all we can hope for - that some of what we have made becomes motre than it appears to be in the beginning. Basically, money is never associated with "art"since art is un-buyable. As it is an enigma, a wondrous non-thing which is spiritual rather than physical, it cannot be bought. It is free to whomever looks upon it and is moved. Yes, we can buy the thing that holds the art (for example : the painting of the Mona Lisa belongs to the Louvre museum in Paris, but Mona Lisa "herself" belongs to the world - free and gratis. This is what “may” one day make our artwork valuable - i.e. : when it lives and breathes within others and beyond its physical self. Only then is there art. Only then are we "artists".
"17/03/2017 #32 Tiina HolliHello everybody. A new angle :
Here are two examples of what artists all over the world are up against and have always been.
My ponderings and point today : why is it, that it is so hard to understand that creative work is work, also when an artist is the creative worker ?
At the moment creative workers of all kinds are getting rights as workers amongst workers, and what do they do?
They are abusing artists' work.
Who else is stealing artists' designs in the internet, copy pasting it and presenting it to Zara etc as their own design then creative workers that are not creative artists themselves ?
Tsk tsk tsk.
First example to discuss in the theme Art and money :
a rip off of by some random nobody making money with a dead artist's work and name and fame :
Frida Kahlo Infiltrates the Snapchat Generation with a New Set of Emoji
Second example to discuss in the theme Art and money :
Could Blockchain Put Money Back in Artists’ Hands?
Thank you Eeva Maria for initiating this discussion !
What do you think ?25/02/2017 #31 Phil FriedmanEeva > "It's obvious to buy art one must be rather wealthy."
With all due respect, I believe your statement only applies if one mistakenly assumes that the only good art is that which has achieved notoriety in the "art world". There is much good art to be had and enjoyed for affordable prices, if one is patient, does not pay for big names, and buys to keep rather than for investment.
https://www.bebee.com/producer/@friedman-phil/a-look-at-my-personal-collection 30/01/2017 #24 Eeva Maria Al-Khazaali#20 I absolutely agree on your views of choosing carefully if you are going to be an artist. Of course, many in the creative industry say that money, numbers and figures are easily confused by the less corporate type in the art world, working more on the creative side of things on itself.
thank you for your inspiring story of collecting art.

Only then are we "artists".21/12/2016 #20 Phil FriedmanIt's necessary for would-be artists to face a couple of truths. Foremost, that not everyone who aspires to produce worthwhile art can do so. Yes, "beauty" (read artistic value) is in the eye of the beholder, but if it is only in your eye, consider taking up auto mechanics or some other trade, if for no other reason than to support yourself. Second, consider pricing your are so that it is affordable for ordinary people to own. My wife and I buy and display only original art in our home. We once bought a beautifully framed fairly large piece that we absolutely from the Miami artist Jeff Laibson for $800. We would not consider selling it, so have never had it valued, but I think it must be worth more than 10 times what we paid for it. Could not afford one now, but became big Laibson promoters because we could buy one then. IMO.21/12/2016 #19 Paul KemnerIt's tragic, but most university arts programs set their students up for failure. It's time the arts establishment got over the Salon de Paris, and put the narrative of the Starving Artist aside as a toxic product of 19th century Romanticism.
When making art for *any* audience is construed as selling out, it's time to reject that worldview. The barriers to finding an audience for your art/music/whatever have never been lower.
Educating the public that art or craft is worth paying for is a separate issue, and one that's particularly bad in the USA.21/12/2016 #12 Eeva Maria Al-Khazaali#6 You have a very romantic idea of artists. Many, who are cold hearted and yet passionate, professional and strict about it, might not want to compare vital bodily functions to the importance of work. But nevertheless, a good reply and nice that you wish me so well. Thank you!
