Resurrection (IF - Atmosphere)

I have awakened, soaring from death, my dreamless slumber.

What can I say? My fascination and utterly bewildering attachment to these exotic images are proving to be quite a blissful catastrophe up there in my head. I see them with my eyes widely opened throughout the day, and even more so as I close them at night. Strangely enough, I see each beginning transforming from a single line and shaping into a vivid imagery even before I put the tip of my pencil onto paper. Quite exhausting, don't you think? I feel like being in a rush and running in a race with only myself as competitor.

Though I have no idea where this intoxicating drive is taking me, I know I am enjoying the thrill of the unknown, daring me to unfold and push myself just a bit closer to the edge. So please bear with me and wish me a little luck on my expedition into the depth of my own curiosity!



  1. i like the expression on the lady's face

  2. :D AMALIA! I wish you luck, I know you're brave enough to complete this expedition. I'm curious to see what treasures you're going to show us while you explore your curiosity...
    I'm here, relishing the wind that shakes the girl's hair in your picture

  4. mmmh.... the girl in your drawing is blind? or she only has eyes that reflect her thinking? I am amazed :)

  5. Continuing your perfec series! I love these paintings!

    WHOOOOAAAAA!!! That's a big snake!

  6. Love the dreamy quality to the skin. How are you creating these pieces - what mediums are you using? They are really incredible.

  7. This is really lovely Amalia, I like the textures you're adding to your pictures recently, they create a whole different feeling and depth to the picture. Oh and good luck exploring your curiosity, I hope you find many beautiful things there :)

  8. AMALIA!!!!! I LOVVVVVVVVVVE this, each new piece you do is better than the last. I am truly loving these new works. They are breathing with life.

  9. Oh my goodness..this is stunning, Amalia. You are AMAZING! I've said it before, haven't I?!! She is so beautiful and the textures and how you've interwoven the beautiful rich color of the dragon, and mimic it on her robe is lovely...compositionally, graphically...lovely! I am just absolutely enjoying this ride with you as you continue pushing yourself to the edges of your mind's eye. Fantastic!! : )

  10. Very Nice! This has a strong adventure and fantasy vibe.

  11. How heavy and strong the dragon is and how tamed he looks in her tender arms! It's difficult to analyse this time - I just look and what I feel is energy, strength and determination... Go ahead, dear friend, follow your curiosity and dreams, explore them and look deep inside your soul and mind. No boundaries, no hesitations! The path is yours and it will lead you somewhere... There's nothing "par hasard", I believe!xx
    Oh, I like the coloured reflections on her face!

  12. So beautiful-- have a lovely rollercoaster ride! Creativity is so amazing, sometimes it relly feels like it has a life of its own!

  13. Really amazing Amalia. It is so much fun to be 'in the flow' of an artistic outpouring I think. You are producing so much amazing work! I love her eyes, they look almost dragon like and the printing on her gown is fabulous.
    I would love to know what medium you are using too.

    I leave inspired, as always.

    Smiles and hugs

  14. Amalia, this is just exceptional, and I am loving the visual ride! Hold on tight and let it happen!
    I can say no more....


  15. Beautiful piece! Your journey is taking you to very powerful places!

  20. Okay Amalia. Cease! Desist! Your work is just saoring and I fill sixk with dissiness.

    Hmm: I really type. Your work is just soaring and I feel sick with dizziness!

    Just a wow for this one. So dark and yet so heavy! I just love your last few works.

    Heh. That ephiphany must have been gestating. What gem filled dragons lurk in yonder brain field.

    I wonder. :)

  21. Hello, hello, everyone! Thanks so much for your kind and generous comments on my work. Each one means a lot to me, and I really mean that! You have no idea how much I'm encouraged to do better just by reading your words...

    I'm sorry for not answering each comment, but my head is still in a rush, remember? Right now, I have something needs pouring out...hehehe.

    I see that some of you were questioning about the medium I use? Well, I'll try to post something about that next time, ok? If my head doesn't completely break down from exhaustion, of course... :D :D

    Ciao!! oxox

    Mulan: Uh... I, I, uh...
    Chi Fu: Your commanding officer just asked you a question.
    Mulan: Uh, I've got a name. Ha! And it's a boy's name, too.
    Mushu: [whispering in Mulan's ear] Ling. How 'bout Ling?
    Mulan: [pointing at Ling] His name is Ling.
    Shang: I didn't ask for his name. I asked for yours!
    Mushu: Try, uh, uh, ah, Chu.
    Mulan: Ah Chu.
    Shang: Ah Chu?
    Mushu: Gesundheit.
    Mushu: [chuckles] I kill myself.
    Mulan: Mushu...
    Shang: Mushu?
    Mulan: No!
    Shang: Then what is it?
    Mushu: Ping! Ping was my best friend growin' up.
    Mulan: It's Ping.
    Shang: Ping?
    Mushu: Of course, Ping did steal my girl...
