Hi there guys :heart: A bunch of thank you's for all who have kept this group colorful. :tighthug:

I wish to formally thank these colorful individuals for their contribution and to welcome them as Contributors to our group:

Sunset Fire by NovaHeroiMonmouth Beach Sunrise by Ryser915sunrise... by killforhire07

Hello all :wave: :tighthug:

I want to say I am happy so many people love us, contribute, and keep us colorful. I do hope more bright and colorful pieces make it into our vast collection. I am still sorting and have finally found some time again to continue after two months off. I apologize for any confusion in folders and I will work on making it clearer for everyone. Our rating of colorful is holding at about 90% so keep it up.

I will be removing contributors and demoting those who are inactive making way for anyone who would like to be a staff member . If you do Note me and I will invite 1 or 2 of my own choice. I can take care of group logistics with a few moderators so now contributors will be the top of the colorful crop should they choose to be. They contribute to the group the most and lead by example, which is awesome and an inspiration to us all. :squee: :tighthug:

That being said no one is excluded or any less so keep doing your very creative colorful complete best!!

Happy May to all and may we have a colorful spring and a not too hot summer!! Now for our Artists of the Month and then a mega-feature of color. :wow:

Folder is full. Maybe you should seperate the folders. Having all art pieces submitted into one fills it fairly quickly.
OcularFracture Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2014  Professional General Artist
Which folder, exactly? We have several different folders for different types of art.
