I have the honor of being involved with an online community of artist and crafters who Tweet, Ustream and YouTube in order to share ideas, teach, creatively inspire and cultivate friendships. Recently, this otherwise upbeat and positive group of creative creatures, was exposed to the vitriolic acts and words of a few Internet trolls.
In response to the troll behavior, the community banned together to quiet the hate with the Loving Kindness Project (LKP). The main objective of the LKP was to dedicate one week to creating art in support of loving kindness. To kick-off the week, a team of artist monopolized the Ustream ether-waves on Sat and Sun, Jan 29 & 30 to share their art while hundreds of viewers cheered them on in support.
The color theme for art in support of Loving Kindness was Pink. You will find the numerous pieces of pink mixed-media art posted on the LKP Flickr Group page. The Flickr Group will remain open beyond the LK Week so that artist can continue to contribute to create and support Loving Kindness in the online art community.
