This group is dedicated to all the events and changes that happen in our life without expectation. The unforeseen joy that brightens a day and the downdrafts that test our faith and strength. a wind that blows across our face just before the storm, can lead us to a path worn by the steps of creative discovery. Share your experience, as life is what happens to all of us.

Group Rules:
1. Paintings, photographs, digitally altered images and digital art are all welcome.

2. Strong limits on nudity. Please keep a PG rating so we can be family friendly.

3. Submission limit of two (2) images per member per day please. This provides balanced exposure for all members in the group.

We feature the unexpected when it arrives that reflects the spirit of the group.. We welcome your submissions and look forward to the benefit we will all experience when 'Life Is What Happens'.

Congratulations to our Showcased Artist for September. Barbara D. Richards describes herself as a self-taught photographer who has spent years perfecting her technique.
