Big Heart of Art - 1000 Visual Mashups

Newer Older

A blended heart made from the art of 1000 Visual Mashups!


A celebration of the 1000th work of art being added to the Visual Mashups pool, and the hearts of 100 Visual Mashup artists!

This image is a processed blend of some of the most "interesting" red hearts on flickr, then converted to a mosaic using almost every single one of the first 1000 images added to the Visual Mashups pool - from red and pink to black and white, from mosaics of flowers and roses to abstract fractal landscapes!

With love and congratulations to the Visual Mashups group!


When the Visual Mashups group was 2 months old and had 200 artists, I continued the concept of this heart of art mosaic, creating a second digital mosaic, containing 2000 works of art, in "Two of Arts" here:

Two of Arts - 2000 Visual Mashups!



If you haven't had the chance, I ask you to visit my tribute to Whitney Houston, may her soul rest in peace.

A Look Back at Whitney Houston


I thank you so much. For this, for the years of love and support, for much, much more...

    I thank you all for the years of kind words and support you have given this piece, a Big Heart, from the Visual Mashups group to the world of Art.

    I'd like to invite all of you, in fact I'd like to ask all of you, to take a moment to visit my tribute to the great Whitney Houston, suddenly and tragically taken from us, may her soul rest in peace.


    Thank you.

    Congratulations on receiving more than 50,000 views -- that's quite impressive! Now that you've reached this major milestone, you might want to consider graduating this photograph from the 'Views: 25,000' group to the 'Views: 50,000' group, which can be found here:

    Once again, congratulations and hopefully your photos will receive many more views in the future! Reminder: Per group rules, photos should only be in one 'Views:xx' group at a time. Once you have graduated the photograph from one 'Views: xx' group to another, remember to remove the photograph from all previous 'Views: xx' groups.
