A La Svenja Jodicke

Inspiration Avenue challenged us to create something in the style of our favourite artist but I love many artists so I chose Svenja Jodicke. She was born in Germany and uses watercolor techniques in her paintings.

Shine Happy People!

Today I am not working so my creative juices are flowing fast. My girls are at home too. One is riding her bike in our yard. The other is having a virtual argument with her boyfriend. How strange! But what is technology for huh?! It is sunny and cool like a spring day has to be. What a lovely inspiring day!Here is my contribution for Moo-Mania. The theme is metal so I used a metal paper to create my tag. The effects of light on the paper are super cool!









And here is a bit of my corner of the world. Isn't it a lovely day?



Have a magical weekend!

When the fairies play

“Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.” 
― W.B. Yeats


I drew the forest and added the fairies digitally.Love the effect.

Lonely Girl

“The dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins. 
It always wins because it is everywhere. 
It is in the wood that burns in your hearth, and in the kettle on the fire; it is under your chair and under your table and under the sheets on your bed. Walk in the midday sun, and the dark is with you, attached to the soles of your feet. 
The brightest light casts the darkest shadow.” 
― Matthew Woodring Stover

Ellora and Spooky

Couldn't resist drawing a witch especially now that Halloween is around the corner. I used watercolor pencils, oil pastels and acrylics. Her name is Ellora and she's a modern witch that's why she's wearing purple instead of black. Her cat's name is Spooky and they live in my heart.

Selene



Hymn to Selene

Muses, sweet-speaking daughters of Zeus Kronides
and mistresses of song, sing next of long-winged Moon!
From her immortal head a heaven-sent glow
envelops the earth and great beauty arises
under its radiance. From her golden crown the dim air
is made to glitter as her rays turn night to noon,
whenever bright Selene, having bathed her beautiful skin
in the Ocean, put on her shining rainment
and harnessed her proud-necked and glittering steeds,
swiftly drives them on as their manes play
with the evening, dividing the months. Her great orbit is full
and as she waxes a most brilliant light appears
in the sky. Thus to mortals she is a sign and a token.

CHAKRA COLORS: BLUE IS THE COLOR OF THE THROAT CHAKRA

Blue is the color of the Throat Chakra, also known as Visuddha. This chakra is located in the throat.  It is linked to the throat, neck, hands, and arms. The Throat Chakra is connected with speech and hearing, and encourages spiritual communication. Opening the Throat Chakra is said to improve clairaudience. Gemstones that will aid the Throat Chakra include turquoise and aquamarine. {See more about chakra colors}


 THE MEANING OF BLUE AROUND THE GLOBE

Coffee and time

Hi Elizabeth and Pia Rom! 

What's the time there? We are observing DST here so I am three hours ahead now. Needless to say my biological clock is not happy at all with the change. But I am going to drink some coffee. Would you like some? We drink coffee all day long here. 

Well my friends, have a magical day!
