Medium: Watercolor, Mixed Media
My niece (who thinks I’m a really good artist, which is really sweet) asked me to paint “smile, be happy” on a canvas for her birthday. I was touched that a 11 year old just wanted my art for her birthday lol. Which was in October and I just now finished lol… pretty typical for me, actually…
I want to change the world
Instead I sleep
All that I know is I’m breathing.
-Ingrid Michaelson, “Keep Breathing”
Pretty sure at one point of my life I listened to this song on repeat for about 3 months. Also, maybe I need to make a separate category for my stuff instead of just lumping everything under my “mixed media” page like a lazy bum.
Death is a part of everything that lives.
-Zeddicus Zu’l Zoranders, Wizard’s First Rule by Terry Goodkind
At face value I suppose this quote may seem rather depressing, but as someone that struggles with the concept of death (other people’s – not my own), I found the idea of death being a necessary part of life and its certainty somehow comforting.
Seek me out
Look at, look at, look at, look at me
I’m all the fishes in the sea.
-Fiona Apple, “Daredevil”
The text seems rather stupid taking out of context, but her voice at this part of the song is really incredible. Did I mention I love Fiona Apple? Because I do.
The cream in my tea
Spells out something to me
And they say
That I’ll heal by the day
But, the message I give
Kills off all will to live
I’m afraid that I’m losing my way.
-Bonnie McKee “I Hold Her”
I loved every single word of this song so much I had to use it all, but I’ll save you the burden of reading and just post the text that inspired me the most.
Everything I have to look forward to
Has a pretty painful and very imposing before
-Fiona Apple, “O’ Sailor”
