This is the EYE YOUR SKY COLLECTION, the result of our SECOND GALLERY CHALLENGE. I wanted to have the list out here for all of you tomorrow, but then I thought that it would be better, to have all the art works out on Saturday,believing that Sunday is the best day, for someone among us, to set the issue theme of the 3rd Gallery Challenge. The essence is that a new challenge, could be set on each Sunday, run through the entire week, the list of members be published on Saturday, and Sunday to be the day, that our new theme issue is set, so as all to know, when the challenge starts, and ends. This is what I think, but please, do take the time to consider it and let's exchange opinions on this challenge, on the comment thread.
This second gallery challenge, is a true online gallery exhibition, and one by looking the artists/writers involved, can meet skies from all over the world, can remember again the serenity of a sunrise, the romance of a sunset, the strength of thunders, can see rainbows, and colours in love, all in the most perfect canvas there is: the sky, which is one, and the same for all of us. It is true, that if we want to find one feature that can be a solid defence to having humanity as a part of our nationality, this could easily be the sky, along with nature. We are most alike than different, and as the sky has its days, and nights, its rains, and suns, its clouds, and rainbows, we in our microcosm, have the same attitudes: Some times we are winter, other summer, some days we are night, and some nights, sunny mornings. We too have nature, and sky inside.
I tried to nominate all on the Reader's Ρick, but the comment section rejected me, with the respοnse, that I had too many links in my comment. But trully, this would be to me a heartpick, and an aesthetic nomination. Starting from M.C.S, with the combination of poetry and painting, to Zanelle, with her modern and progressive works, visiting the sky of Schmoopie, tense, and full of mystery, to the work of Erica, where the sky is combined with the city and the everyday life, followed by the work of Lea Lane, who travels us to marvellous skies all over the world, and then to the thinking sky of Just Ρhyllis, who makes us remember that in the sky there is a lot more then clouds, colours, nature- our existence-, to Nilesite, who travels us to New York, and Shutterbug, who makes with her images a sky poetry, then to Art James, who combines the need for Ρeace, with meaningful writing and images, to Maria Heng, for a sky travel, and Olga Stathi, for another look in the sky, we can explore the amazing art works of Donegal Descendant, and the marvellous sunrises of Designanator, to the so romantic skies of Little Kate, and the so artfull skies of Tg Within, only to then meet Blindream's to steal sky just from his backyard,and Libby's actual and metaphorical quest to find the sky ... a true miracle infront of our eyes, maybe for all of us to remember that the most perfect art work, is nature. ( This was my comment on the RΡ, followed by all the links, but unfortunately, it wasn't accepted, so I have it here).

The second gallery challenge is still ongoing for anyone who wants to share with all of us his/hers images of sky, and I think that if this gallery challenge can be our own weekly tradition, this would be just great. This tradition belongs to all of us, and I am so glad that I am a part of a such artful, romantic, modern and thinkfull collection.
Sky is there, for all of us to fly...
Thank you for the time, interest and the creation of this GALLERY CHALLENGE, as our weekly tradition. Now, one of us has to set the theme issue for the 3rd Gallery Challenge, tomorrow!!!
Thank you all for your time and interest,
