Weekend Wishes!


There is a storm outside this first advent Sunday. No leaves left on the trees, rain drizzling down and my dog has to squint in the wind. I woke up to a very sweet morning, listening to music and hiding in bed for a while with a cup of coffee before venturing out.

Today I want to pick up a paint brush and just sit around all day painting. I've got some ideas and I want to see them come to life.

As for this wish list, it's all teal, pale yellow and turquoise again, because I love these colours so much. Amazing little finds in my favorite shades to make me smile. I'll need it once I start doing my laundry. Mhmm...

Sinking


I'm so very very tired now. I started this piece last night after listening to a lot of music that really brought out inspiration and emotions that I needed to paint. It was kind of a difficult piece and I prefer my inital sketch because it had more flow and motion in it. But I learn from that, sometimes all the polish isn't needed, I should have stopped earlier. Anyway, it's a new piece and I'm happy I managed to create something personal this weekend.

I haven't put any specific symbolism into the piece, although it has a lot of emotions behind it. It feels like I've been through some of the most emotionally challenging months of my life. Separations and tears mixed with love and passion and care, and I've never been able to really handle it all. I still don't quite know what to think.

Now I need to go to bed and just breathe a while. This piece drained my energy.

Miserable

I woke up too late today, had a facial accident which has me looking a bit like a zombie and somehow the rest fo the day has been somewhat miserable for no real reason. It's a randomly miserable day and I just want to get home and sleep. Whine-whine-random-whine... I have nothing real to complain about except my own bad mood. Silly silly enmi.

Sin

I've felt completely and utterly exhausted after work this entire week. To recover I've been diving back into World of Warcraft, role playing and just talking to friends. It's a good way for me to escape reality and just rest for a while. While role playing as Fawne Westwind, I got inspired enough to draw her as she is now. For those who have followed my blog a long time, this might be a familiar character. I've played her for over a year and she started out as a simple street kid, eager for jobs and easy coin. Since then a lot of things have happened, and this is how she is now.

Her code name is 'Sin' and she has worked her way up the ranks within the Ravenholdt Sanctuary, a group of assassins. It's really interesting for me to look back on what my little creation has become, since she started out as a school project for my University thesis, and she feels like a little part of myself. Creating this piece took most of my day, and I did a livestream of it that sadly isn't complete due to computer issues. But if you want to watch it, click here.

Weekend Wishes!



I sat on my balcony today, smoking like I know I shouldn't, but it was so calm and I had just cleaned my kitchen to spotlessness. I've been so stressed out lately by my personal life that just never manages to just settle and give me some rest. Today though I feel like I can breathe properly, see new hope, look forward to days I hope to fill with art and sweet walks with the dog.

I'm really happy with my job at the moment, getting to do something I've dreamed of ever since I was a kid. This autumn might have been filled with dramatic storms of emotions for me, but today I don't feel as heavy and worried as before. This is my first 'weekend wishes'-post in what feels like ages, but I'm happy to be at it again. It always makes me happy.

Look the other way

Another dark piece. Since I seem to be in this mood I just keep drawing and painting these as a series. I did a livestream of this one as well but for some reason it doesn't seem to have been saved to my channel. Ah well, that's life.

Sweet Picks!


A mix of wonderful photographs I've found recently, all with this murky dark feel to them that I seem to be addicted to. Beauty mixed with dirt and decay.

I've been absent from, well, not only blogging but also real life it seems. I've been so confused over my rather messy personal life lately and I also got a terrible cold that knocked me out for a few days where I could do nothing but stare, lie in bed and cough. It's better now, but my life is still as confusing as ever if not more. So, what to do? More art and beautiful pictures...
