With Love for Those Who Suffer













:heart::iconallmyloveplz::heart:
Depression, anxiety and panic attacks are NOT a sign of weakness. They are signs of having tried to remain strong for too long. Share the support. Let those who struggle know they’re not alone…

Angels And Gangstas Group Monthly Award by MayEbony
Thank you to all of the very sweet Angels and Gangstas, and particularly to :iconmypeanutgallery: for presenting me with the monthly :iconangels-and-gangstas: Award in June 2014 . I guess it was for starting up the group for all of the dear 'Angels Without Wings' and 'Gangstas of Love' and getting everything off the ground.

Heartist by Nameda
My goodness, I've today (17th Jun '14) been awarded with a deviantHEART from :icondeviantheart: Thank you so very much dear Denise :iconsserenita: and all at deviantHEART: that means so much to me!
The text they so kindly wrote reads...
May is one of those wonderful people that you don't get to meet very often in life. She is a shining example of a caring and loving deviant, and her entire page is a tribute to the community she loves. She is constantly showing her gratitude through special projects and features bringing stand-out deviants into the spotlight. Most prominently, May is a representative for The Angels Without Wings program, as well as a recipient of the award herself!

May is beloved by so many people and is just a shining ray of light spreading love and joy wherever she goes! She is proud of her beautiful family and her gallery is a testament to her love for life. She is truly someone that we all look up to and aspire to be. It is with great pleasure that I bestow the honor of Featured Heartist on MayEbony!

:iconsesam-is-open: Beautiful Couples In Life And In Art - Part SevenIn a time when nothing is more certain than change, the attachment of two people to one another has become a rare thing, but just this increases its beauty.
All of us want to love and to be loved, but this is not easy at all!:icontruesmiles:
Love doesn't means only "I Love You", love means commitment and respect, a strong shoulder who can support your head at any moment, a warm heart who can  receive your joys, an energetic hand which can relieve all pain and depression, a mysterious smile during a dance, which always conjures the First Dance, but above all, love is the only feeling  that shines over time when our hair is white and our wrinkles talk about memories.
This is love and life, this is what all of us dream to have and to share this is what we have to respect and cherish.
I had the chance to meet some beautiful couples in our  dA community and I have the pleasure to dedicate a series of journals to them.
I want to do this because I want to let them know how

:icontoni-r: Interview with MayEbonyMayEbony
:bulletgreen: How did you got into photography? :bulletgreen:
My grandfather belonged to a camera club and asked me to go along as the model for his group one month.  The experience fascinated me.  This was in the days when film was the only choice and they had to wait until they’d finished the roll to see their results.  I was 13.
:bulletgreen: Which piece from your gallery are you most proud of, and why? :bulletgreen:
I still love Wave Spilling Over Rocks   I’d had my DSLR 6 months by then and was finally starting to understand its functions so this is one of my earliest pieces that I’d had to learn a great deal in order to take.  I’d really worked hard to earn this shot.  Plus I love how much there is to look at in the shot as well as the basic colours.
:bulletgreen: Have you ever achieved any awards for your photography? :bul

:iconinspirationstation1: Our Member Feature ~ May Ebony!Hi Everyone, we would like to introduce you to May, our second featured member!  Thank you Blue for a wonderful interview with May!
Here is just a small sample of May's amazing gallery of beautiful photo's:
         
         
Blue asked May: How long have you been an artist and do you remember what it was that lead you down this path in life, to be an artist?
I think I’ve had a love of beauty my whole life, but as far as creating art – that probably started when I got my first camera for my 11th birthday.  That was long, long ago in 1967 and my father bought me films that I could take only 12 pictures with, and a flash cube that gave you 4 flashes before you had to buy a new cube :iconteheplz:  My beautiful and beloved Grandfather was a good photographer and oil painter so I loved photography becaus

Richard is a sweet, dedicated friend who goes out of his way to promote others on his beautiful journal features! He makes sure that all his friends are remembered on their birthdays, making the sweetest polls, which feel like an invitation to celebrate! His funny interactions with his watchers and friends make him unique, insightful, and a real breath of fresh air for those of us who are fortunate enough to have the privilege of calling him a friend!

:iconjeffrettalyn: nominated by MoonyMina and MayEbony

Dear Katie truly is one of the world's beautiful souls. She is so kind and loving and always really helpful... She creates free tutorials, journal skins, PS brushes, wallpaper and gallery CSS and, when you have trouble installing them, or adjusting them to your screen, she doesn't mind spending 2 hours helping you, even if you are really slow to understand. Katie is always so generous with everyone and her heart is constantly considering the needs of others first. She gives PMs, suggests other deviants for rewards, gives llamas, and so many other things above and beyond just normal dA friendship. She is also an amazing handicrafter and artist - her many and varied talents will blow you away if you check her gallery. Katie is so positive and caring in her attitude - a total sunshine to brighten anyone's day!

:iconladymidnightsolace: nominated by Etsuko-Hime

Lady is a friend who is truly an Angel Without Wings! She answers all her comments, she is friendly (and very cute), and works really hard to assist everyone to improve their own art. Lady regularly produces beautiful art features to showcase other artists work, and creates really inspiring art of her own. LadyMidnightSolace is a very kind and helpful person, she is that kind of person, when you meet her you'll say "what a nice girl!" She has this gentle and generous aura that makes it difficult not to like her, and she goes out of her way to help others feel good about themselve. She is positive in nature, and cheers people on. Lady also helps with running several groups that are designed to help other artists get better at making art, stories and characters! Anyone who devotes so much time and energy into helping others surely deserves a pair of wings!

:iconsabakunoshi: nominated by sesam-is-open jennystokes & MYPeanutGallery

Shi is a wonderful artist and friend, not to mention an admirable and supportive member of the community. Always willing and ready to help, she consistently promotes and encourages other artists with beautiful features and encouraging critiques. She also keeps a habit of posting well-thought out articles, and offers constant featuring opportunities for club work. To top it off, Shi is incredibly talented herself; her digital and traditional art alike breathe life and subtle emotion, you can find deviants all around making use of her wonderful journal skins, and her photography holds a sweet sort of glow around it that mirrors her personality. Despite her popularity, she maintains an approachable demeanor, and is a joy to interact with. Thoughtful and earnest, it cannot be denied that she is genuinely enjoyable to speak with. For those of you who don't know her yet, Shi will be an enlightening and lovely revelation.
