For the past few weeks, I have been driving a campaign to offer support to fellow NFT creators and I must say, I have had the opportunity to come across amazing artwork. It is a real adventure in itself…(Read more about it at the bottom of this page.)
Created by artists Jim Carney and Linda Carney
What I see
This one is special for me. I love all animals, but I have a high appreciation of horses. They are magnificent sentient beings with beautiful eloquent eyes. They are naturally wild and they can also accept to collaborate with humans with resilience (sadly, sometimes, under tightfisted unjustified dictatorship). In this artwork by Jim and Linda Carney, I see a radiant world filled with happiness. I see an expression of love towards the subject itself by the artist. I can’t help but also notice that Princess SweetHeart looks peaceful and grateful. She seems happy. I see in her a unicorn who decided to hide her magical horn in order to live unnoticed with the family who accepted to take her in and care for her when she was found with her back leg injured, wrapped up in barbed wire at age 2. (She is approx 12 now.😊) I also see kindness and generosity because of the initiative from which this NFT collection sprouted… Read on, you will understand.
What I feel
I feel happy and touched by the warmth of the vibrant colors. I almost feel like in a dream because of the slight pastel impressionism style of this beautiful image but I am most definitely moved by the reason why it has been created. I feel touched. I feel filled with gratitude and moved because…
Who is Princess SweetHeart?
Princess SweetHeart was the first animal to be rescued by Jim Carney (@favormindedjim) and Linda Carney back in 2012. Since then, they have been taking in and feeding many animals who were old, abandoned or injured (horses, dogs, cats, ducks, chickens, etc.) They operate a small animal rescue shelter in Spokane, WA, USA. Besides caring for the animals they rescued, from time to time they offer workshops where they teach training for dogs and horses. They invite families to come and learn to care for animals, train them, feed them, groom, etc. When the animals turn out to need more resources and attention than they can provide, they also associate with Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Services to ensure continuity and that the animals are properly cared for.
Jim and Linda recently decided to create NFTs by artistically evolving pictures of their rescued animals and selling these artworks to raise money to contribute to their work and help feed the animals on their rescue farm. This is also a way to immortalize these precious souls who shared their lives when they pass out and proceeds from the images of their memory are recycled into more support for the living animals still with them. In our world craving for such altruistic initiatives, I find this idea poetic and beautiful.
NFTs for charity and altruistic causes demonstrate another beautiful side of this “crypto” world that we are building together. I sincerely invite you to support Jim and Linda as well as other causes that will benefit our world and all who lives in it. Thank you Jim and Linda for your initiative. Keep up your great generous noble work!🙏✌️
Here are some more NFTs from Jim and Linda, do not hesitate to support these artists and their noble cause.
About this initiative
For the past few weeks, I have been driving a campaign to offer support (ever humbly) to my fellow NFT creators and I must say, I have had the opportunity to come across amazing artwork. It is a real adventure in itself.
I decided to start writing a few thoughts about random NFTs I reviewed and figured I would create posts on my website in case it interested anyone looking for inspirations on which artists to support or which collections to keep an eye out for.
I am no expert, my only tools are my appreciation of art, my feelings and emotions, my way with words and a true desire to spread positivity in a world where, for the majority, everything is hidden behind by a big cloud of uncertainty.
May this initiative serve its humble purpose and bring support or help or positivity in any way to anyone reading it and to the artists featured in my articles. 🙏
