Sadly after more than two years of this great weekly event “Meet And Greet Fridays…” I came to the decision to suspend it for now. Lately l have seen that there is not much participation anymore, like it used to be. We used to have great time every weeks full of Blogs and their links left here. I noticed that observing the past few weeks, fewer people came here, very few left a real link to their Blog in the comments, mostly only left a “Like” without any word or comment related to their own blog! How new bloggers are supposed to know who you are without a link and few words. Today only four lovely people came here to leave their “like” and I appreciate them very much.  I take time to make this post every week, and I make sure to share the event on other social media platforms to make it successful for you! I made this weekly event for you to be able to connect, engage and meet others here in the “Community ” I also made this especially for the New Bloggers so that they don’t feel lost and lonely on the blogosphere. We all know how hard it is in the beginning to find, friends and followers and be able to find an audience interested in what you write and what your blog is all about. It is almost scary when you are new here and nobody reads your blog because nobody knows that exist. You all are the ones that can make this event successful with me and if there is not participation or interest to share your own blog, then all this effort doesn’t fit the purpose of giving the opportunity to connect and be Featured on my Blog. I really gave my time and space with all my heart to help others.  I am sorry but I think it’s time to take a break from this event, I don’t know for how long, maybe sometimes I will host some Meet And Greet again.
We had amazing connections made here and I want to thank from the bottom of my heart everyone that participated during the past two years. I will keep the Archive Page up so that you can always come back and dig through the many links left, sure you will find great blogs.

Right now I will focus on my Art and on other interesting things in plan here on my Blog.

Thank you love you all ❤

– James Graham –

Today I am sharing with you my New Digital Portrait!

James Graham is the singer of my favorite Scotland band The Twilight Sad their great and unique music and the beautiful photos of international Music Photographer Mauro Melis , inspired me on creating this new Digital Portrait in honor and to celebrate today James Birthday!

The Twilight Sad just ended two days ago in Miami  their amazing and successful North American Tour as guest band opening for The Cure! I attended their amazing and unforgettable  concert last May in Los Angeles and I was lucky to met James, if you haven’t you can read my Blog Post here.

This is a black and white with a hue of blue portrait in connection and symbiosis, reflecting  James unique style and stage presence as mirror and shining light of The Twilight Sad  music.

For this special portrait with the courtesy and kindness of Mauro Melis I was able to use some of his stunning photos from this Tour.

Digital Art – When Nature Meets Humans – Portrait #6

Portrait #6 Ewian

“WHEN NATURE MEETS HUMANS”
Digital Portraits Collection

Portrait #6
– EWIAN –

Today I am sharing with you my New Portrait for this unique Digital Art Collection “When Nature Meets Humans” created out of digital photo-manipulation, each portrait is a blend of multiple photos representing nature and persons. I started to develop this concept about two months ago and since then I created  five unique portraits.

This is Portrait #6 – EWIAN

Last week Ewian was the Featured on my “Weekly Featured Blogs Event” taking place every Saturday, if you missed the post you can see it here.
Ewian is a great music composer from Germany and his beautiful music and videos, inspired me on creating my new Portrait for this unique Collection. A black and white portrait in connection and symbiosis, reflecting  Ewian style and Alternative Post-Rock music.
I used some of the great photos found on EWIAN Blog blended with photos of the “Black Forest” located in Germany. This beautiful forest rapresent the nature greately.
I like to experiment and continually evolve with my Art and creativity. From years I love to work in digital searching and testing new ways of visualization. I love Photography and like to work with photos, manipulating images and transforming them with my personal artistic touch. You can see the other 5 Portraits in a Gallery here.

I love this idea to mix nature with humans and create some unique and very different kinds of portraits…This Collection is created mostly for my own Artistic purpose and to share with you some of my digital abilities.

If you’re interested in purchase a custom and unique portrait like the ones in this Collection you can do it here on my new page Shop Custom Digital Portraits. I will create your own personal and unique custom Digital Art Portrait, for info and details please contact me or visit my new page.

As always I love your comments!
