Clockwork Heart Girl

“Steampunk is...a joyous fantasy of the past, allowing us to revel in a nostalgia for what never was. It is a literary playground for adventure, spectacle, drama, escapism and exploration. But most of all it is fun!”

T stands for Love


Good Morning My Lovelies!

Today I don't want any coffee. It's very hot so just a glass of passion fruit juice for me which is my favourite one. We are never satisfied. I wish I could be contemplating some snow from my window right now but I've never seen it. As a matter of fact, this is what I see from my window:

The water is very clear and inviting.

 But I don't dare going to the beach.

The sun is very intense today and I believe it must be around 35°C.


 Here is another creation from my poetry book, I used watercolor pencils to color my little girl,.The poem and the drawing is a tribute to my furry friend Babi. She is sick and the vet suspects it is osteomyelitis again. I don't want to make her suffer another amputation so I have been quite blue since I got the diagnosis. Life is strange. It always finds a way to hurt us somehow.





The little girl in the drawing is me. The puppy is Babi. I am just five right now and I am glad she is still here with me, lying down on the floor under my chair as I write this text.

Have a magical week my friends and don't forget to visit Elizabeth!

Snow

 Snow 1

Snow 2


"Snow was falling,
so much like stars
filling the dark trees
that one could easily imagine
its reason for being was nothing more
than prettiness.” 
― Mary Oliver

Mary Oliver is one of my favourite poets. I love her.

Poetical me

Hello my lovelies.  How are you today? Hope life has been treating you well. Although it is summer here and needless to say it is steaming hot and unbearable most of times, I have been painting flowers. I decided to create journal pages using watercolor. to adorn my poems and affirmations.. It is going to be my visual poetry book. Why watercolor? Because it is a challenge for me. The right page was done using watercolor pencils but the left one was pure watercolor and it was fun to use brushes to paint. I finished altering a book and it took me three years to do that. I started in october 2015 and finished this year. It is a mix of everything but there is no watercolor in it so this one is just for my studies in watercolor. Therefore right now I am creating two books. One is just for cut and paste collages and oil pastels drawings and the other is just for watercolor and poetry/ affirmations. I don't know if I will have time from February on to dedicate myself to my watercolors because I will start work. I am on holidays. What a bless! Besides poetry is so demanding. It needs so much from me. Words are so complex to weave but I love them as much as I love painting, drawing and digital art.


I have just found a quote to celebrate poetry:

Poetry is plucking at the heartstrings, and making music with them. 
― Dennis Gabor

I have been plucking at my heartstrings with my art and poetry.

Puppy Love

“I like dogs
Big dogs
Little dogs
Fat dogs
Doggy dogs
Old dogs
Puppy dogs
I like dogs
A dog that is barking over the hill
A dog that is dreaming very still
A dog that is running wherever he will
I like dogs.”
