What is Deviated Path?

Welcome to ALL!
:bulletred:Anyone is invited to watch the group. Members should have traditional work in their gallery.
This group was designed to connect abstract, surreal and minimalism artists with one another. We also welcome those who have an interest in the abstract and surreal arts. If you have a suggestion for the group please feel free to note us. When becoming a member remember to watch the group as well. Importantly, we want ALL members to have an enjoyable and enlightening experience within the group.
Abstract art is defined as departure from accurate representation. It may be slight, partial, or it can be complete. Art that does not imitate or directly represent external reality. Based on the theory that form, line and color can be a visual language and experience in themselves.
Surreal art focuses on the subconscious, the fantastic, the interpretation of dreams, and the juxtaposition of unlikely elements.
:bulletred:We are not an elite group but the quality of the post is a must.
~Please keep the work within the frame of download. No blurry images.
~No lined paper or doodles.
~The work must also be finished.
~If these rules are not followed the work will be declined

:bulletred:Only traditional work is being accepted. No digital or photography will be accepted.
:bulletred:Please put your work in the proper folder within the gallery.
:bulletred:All members should be able to receive constructive criticism and critiques but there will be no tolerance of being rude within the group. If someone begins to slam the works of other members they will be banned from the group.

Gallery Folders



I want to apologize to ALL the members. I have been having some health issues which kept me from being on here. I will be doing some work in the group over the weekend and things should be running much better by the end of next week. I want to thank you for your patience. I know many of you may have been frustrated to have your work expire since I was not able to accept it in a timely manner.
I will be creating new folders for 2015. So you may find eventually you will not be able to submit to 2014 folders. You may also see that you will only be able to submit a couple of deviations a week as opposed to a daily submission. This may change in the future as I get back into the swing of things.
Again, my apologies. And wishing you ALL a creative and fully inspiring 2015!!

Yet another submission expired.
Would someone here please accept the role of responsible adult and inform dA that you have no further interest in maintaining this group?
