SO PURTY--

Post  nahn-SEK-wuh-tuhr on Thu Mar 03, 2011 10:29 pm

Derp, apologies for the inactivity. It's due to writer's block, but no worries: once I get artist's block instead, I'll bounce right back. /vicious cycle :I But anyways, I feel like wasting everyone's time here despite the fact that I'm not contributing to the rp. WHAT AN AUDACIOUS PERSON I AM.

So, I've picked up painting, which has led me to look up photos of non-humanoid things I might want to use as inspiration. Which subsequently led me to just go on a search for random stuff I think is beautiful.

In short, I like pretty pictures. Let's share some. :I /BLUNT.

Portuguese Man O' War

If I were religious, I'd say that heaven looks like the Omega nebula.

Glass sponges.

SHROOMS. /shot

Volvox. ...aka Algae. I am becoming such a faggot for biology. /sob

The hamsa+evil eye. Very meaningful symbol for middle easterners. I love the style of this tattoo. <3

I can't decide if I like reddish or black henna better.


YOUR TURN. Show me some beautiful stuff; the more unconventional, the better. B) So that I can steal some ideas for things to paint. /SHOT

OH MY GOODNESS--

You know whose paintings I think you would really like? Eugene Von Bruenchenhein's. They are so beautiful, all done by hand. I went to the AVAM for the exhibit and I stared at each one for at least 10 minutes XD

@babby: ALJSGLKDSJFD--oh my god those colorrrrrrrrrrs-- I read this first thing this morning, and when I saw this, I was like, "This is my reason to wake up today." So so beautiful~ <3 <3 <3

@starvist: lmao, my art classes were such a joke in high school. First year, I was taught by a soccer coach. Second year, my teacher decided she had enough and we watched her through a window as she walked outside and drove away, leaving us with no instructor for the rest of the year. Third and fourth year, my teacher was so grossly overweight that she literally moved around the classroom on a rolling chair. Then the chair broke, and she couldn't come around to check our projects. So I sat in the back, where I could pretend to be working while actually drawing comics.

...I wish I was joking. :I

Yes, and his paintings were at the American Visionary Art Museum (the best place on earth, probably) which means he's had no formal art training or anything. XD I'm glad you liked it <3

Ours is a hippie. :I I ignore her and do whatever. Mostly silk paintings and I just finished printing with a linoleum block I carved to show a Kayaw girl, 'cause Dolly inspired me. :3 It actually came out well. I'm currently painting a Dia De Los Muertos based piece about Juárez.
