This is week III of #Whisper! If any of you know of the game Telephone, this is a take on that. The beauty of Whisper is that it has no winners, and the excitement of it comes from the creative interpretations.
Steemians, welcome to Whisper Gallery II!
Whisper Gallery II, Week III: Featured Artist is @pyrowngs!
This week we have a new creation by @pyrowngs inspired by @soyrosa's piece from the previous week. Check it out. It is not what it may seem. This painting to me seems like a memoire of a dear friend. A reflection of the beauty of that artists combined with elements of their struggle. The musical theme was a great carry over into this. It's amazing how these themes can transform. The almost pop art style of animation done by @soyrosa pairs nicely with a sweet, reflective, slightly sad but also celebratory memoir of Jack.
I will post this twice, and forgive me @pyrowngs if this isn't what was anticipated. I strongly encourage everyone to go to this link and listen to the songs while viewing this art. It has a whole powerful meaning and putting sound to visuals is stunning.
I think it is important to check out @pyrowngs process on this one. It is so personal, and the layers are so deep and beautiful. This is a shockingly beautiful contribution to whisper. Thank you, @pyrowngs.
I think it's only appropriate for those inspired to check out Jack's work as well as linked in @pyrowngs post. Here it is for all of you to lay your ears on. https://www.reverbnation.com/jackhigginbothan/songs

What is Whisper?
A chain of artistic creations that are each initiated by a seed idea/art piece (one piece of artwork inspires the next piece, and so on). Each week we will have a featured artist who will create a piece that is inspired by the piece from the week before.
The beauty of this trail is seeing this creative interpretation and reinvention take place on a high level.
Helping Build an Art Community
We want to collectively build an art community. This is a great way to connect us, support each other through up-votes, comments, and follows. Steemit can be a slow-growing platform for creatives starting out, and the future goal is to roll this into a community event where people can be perpetually submitting to the chain.
With Whisper Gallery I now behind us, I have found so much gratification in the ability to bring more eyes to artists as well as create a showcase beyond the contest level. Art is often abstract to people, and I think when we're able to tell a collective story in our own styles, it begins to unravel that mystery for some. If our goal is to make more art, more appreciators of art, more supporters of the art community, and more people happy in general, I think we've succeeded. More to come!
Steemians, I encourage everyone to re-steem this post to gain more eyes on the project and allow the artists to get more rewards for their high-quality work. Every comment, upvote, resteem, and follow helps!
