Very easy! You use a chisel!
I love poking holes with sharp tools.
This is such a lovely evocative piece. Oh I know why I am talking about sharp objects. geeesh! Look who's talking. Who is embracing thorns! Huh?
Eggrolls, Pansit, fried rice, water melon. Later pizza, drinks and ice cream. 7 beautiful Asian-American girls, very cute, very smart and intelligent, very respectful. I love them! They are in the pool swimming and getting fried by the Texas sun. But they have sun block. Her are your egg rolls. my dear!Tsup!
BWAHAHAHAHAHAH!You said it sister.Little pricks are nothing!HAHAHAHAHA!You want a big prick?HAHAHAHAHA!I can hear Renee hardy Har Harring now!HAHAHAHA!I will use a gauge 18 and a 60 cc syringe.
ahahah! I remember :D in any way, your eyes have seen more than I... you saw elephants, the sun... I'm talking with moles right now :) [and I'm looking for flora inspirations... do you know some place here where I can find beautiful drawings about nature? like flowers os bugs...]
Aren't pricks all the same? I mean a prick is a prick.
Hmn...HAHAHAHA!Aaaahhhh!Oh god, what a riot. I have to stop. I am coughing so much from laughing so hard.
mmmmhhh... now I behold this:that girl is the sun and she is embracing the night
(the preview comment its about your drawing) adn yes :) that makes the world so rich!
oopppsss.... mmmmmhmmm :} I'm doing some types in woodblock (that's why I was looking for nature inspirations)... and I forget the hours...
oh wow... yes....
Hahaha! You are so cute. You are making me blush!
Ohhhhh my. Embracing thorns, and yet she does not flinch. It seems the embrace is worth the pain. Resembles a little yin and yang. There is such beautiful movement and flow to your drawings. You take my breath away each time!
I think this is wonderful... and for response at your question ... I think the story behind this painting is, as always my story ... The rest from all wars and struggles to assert its point of view ... change attitude and let things go. A little more breath ... a little more love for themselves and a little more strength in love ... a big embrace ... !!!
You know? This embrace frightens me in a way! I'm not sure whether it's not stronger than the thorns... Don't you think the time for her awakening has come? Still the roses and the blond hair like a contrast make me breathe lightly.. By the way, this is the face of the Sleeping Beauty for me! Lovely movement in this drawing!
I must thank you all for your kind words and of course, the wonderful interpretations of my work. Your thoughts are like a breath of fresh air to me and so very often help me see things more clearly! :) Of course, this 'embrace' must mean differently to each person. So...Julia and Ces, the thorns are there just basically to remind us of pain. But yet we see buds?? Will they blossom??Amba, the girl is embracing the night? Hhm, I'd like to ponder on that... (Oh no! That will take all night!)Bella, "It seems the embrace is worth the pain". Oh, you are GOOD!! :DRossichka, sometimes the dark has unrevealed beauty underneath and yes, I do hope the girl's awakening will come soon... :)Again, thank yooouuu!! oxox
Amalia, I truly understand when you say the bond gets stronger. Probably because we are older and wiser. I can't get how beautiful are, those eyes of yours.Okay, I know I asked you this before. What did you use to draw this? please don't tell me colored pencil because I am going to scream with envy.
Dang! I need to take lessons from you. What brand?
Which goes to show that's it's tlent that makes art, not the supplies. Hehehehe!
Such beauty from pain..... Hey Amalia! Thanks for stopping by. I always enjoy a visit from you. Thanks for the kind words. Your words are like a paintbrush and your paintbrush like a magic wand. Your artwork is so beautiful, and your poetry exquisite! Have you ever thought of making a book of your words and art? it would be amazing!
youre really good at what you do....and thank you for visiting my blog.
