If you have not contributed yet, please do and encourage others to contribute too!

There is a saying: “A picture is worth a thousand words.”

Let’s see if it’s true!

I refer to pictures as images, because the word “image” seems to suggest a deeper meaning to the subject captured.  Images are, or can become, stories.  Stories often evoke emotions and that is what I’d like to try to get at with all of you who choose to participate in the inaugural Joanne Bartone Photography Collaborative Art Projects with me.


Art Project #1: The 1000 Words Project v1:
I’d like to collect 1000 words to describe your thoughts and feelings when you look at the image in this note. 

Feel free to contribute your thoughts and feelings under Comments beneath this note as one word meant to describe what the image is or what feeling the image evokes in you, or as a number of single word descriptions, or as a poem if you so choose. 

Please encourage everyone, young, old and in-between to participate in this project.  If you are a teacher, share it with your class.  If you are a student, share it with your teacher.

I have some great ideas for where the collection of the Art Projects I have planned will end up – and this is just one of many Art Projects I do have planned.  Perhaps the end result will be a book with all of the projects in it, or perhaps they’ll just stay here, virtually.  But either way, it’ll be OUR collaborative art project and I am very interested to see how we all relate to the same image as individuals and collectively!

Fun, yes?  Enjoy!  Be INSPIRED and try to inspire others with your goodness every day!

THIS PROJECT WILL REMAIN OPEN until we reach 1000 words!

BIG love, Joanne Bartone Photographer  ::  ::  tele: 412.418.8075

I have to agree with Barb (the view from my cruise ship balcony). But for me… I see new life
