Pure Love

“The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.”
― Johnny Depp

Baby First Year

I have an Art group - ALL THINGS BEAUTIFUL- in another site that hosted a contest. It was open to all mediums, for any "baby "below 1 year old for either scene,or portrait and whatever artist got there!
It's titled BABY FIRST YEAR It was aptly themed for
the (Chinese) new year so i thought it was just right celebrating a new life! A new contest and yes focusing on any artwork for "Baby" first year. I also include as bragging right that "All top 3 winners will be featured in a macro blog outside that site" That why am featuring them all here. On Voting Rules

Carrie Pray

Kai by Carrie Pray went home with her 1st place finish.

    Medium:Digital Art - Digital Art Using Natural Media Software
    Description A piece from my upcoming book, "What Are Babies Made Of?"

Carrie Pray is from Chicago, Illinois. Form her profile she wrote:
Art is what keeps me (relatively) sane. I'm a mom to a beautiful baby, wife to a great husband, human to two cats. I studied at Loyola University Chicago and graduated with a BA in fine art. I work mostly digitally (because I have a baby and I don't need one more mess to clean up!) using software specifically made to replicate the look of drawing and painting in natural media. I'm currently working on a book, 'What Are Babies Made Of?,' which I hope to publish in 2015. I love to paint figuratively and explore both realism and abstraction. My most recent work is focused on portraits of babies. Nothing makes me happier than the sound of my daughter giggling and playing while I work.

Shelby Young

"Baby Goat." by Shelby Young earned the 2rd Place.

    Medium: Photograph - Photographs
    The domestic goat (Capra aegagrus hircus) is a subspecies of goat domesticated from the wild goat of southwest Asia and Eastern Europe. The goat is a member of the family Bovidae and is closely related to the sheep as both are in the goat-antelope subfamily Caprinae.

Inge Riis McDonald

Blue Eyes by Inge Iris McDonald took the 3rd Place.

    Medium: Photograph - Photography
    The big beautiful blue and curious eyes of this baby are just irresistible


After two weeks of contest some 97 participants who submitted 144 Pieces of Artworks the above are the best of the best.

Again congratulations to all!
