Why hello! it has been awhile! it has indeed...
It really didnt even cross my mind to post once again on this lil blog o' mine but my dear friend decided to begin again on hers and suggested that i do the same so therefore....
Check out her New Years post here 
Ok here goes my New Years Post.
I do have tons of art that i could be displaying here but since its not scanned and stuff i just opted to go with a photo i took on a lovely winter stroll. 
*clears throat* 
This year was quite the year. (original eh?) 
I really dont know how to begin to recap it but i shall ramble on for awhile and maybe it will be a coherant ramble and maybe not. We'll see. 
I did a great lot of traveling this year which made it a wonderful and fascinating year!
I do believe i traveled across the big blue sea 6 times! And i went touring in Budapest with friends(which by the way i recommend most highly! The Paris of the East is an enchanting city indeed!)
And yes there was marriages of friends at which i bridesmaided(is that a word?) Many a bittersweet occasion...
And lots of growing in Grace.
I think i could ramble on for awhile but i must run.
Have a Happy New Year!!!!

P.S. i'm hoping to do more posting of art this year.

The Saddest thing.

The saddest thing is that slavery still exists. On our street corners...People are being sold and bought everyday . I wanted to do something to help end human trafficking. So i painted a painting. Many prayers went into it. Prayers that it would open some eyes and prayers for all the girls who are living a nightmare. Everybody needs to know about this injustice. It needs to stop. Can you imagine your little kid or sibling being sold into slavery? Imagine them being forced to do horrible things and unbearable labor all day long, day in and day out. Imagine yourself in that situation. When i think of slavery i feel despair at knowing what i can do to help. But i'm starting by spreading the word. The more people know about it the better it can be fought. There's strength in numbers you see.
 Here is something i wrote to God a few years ago when i saw something that made my soul cry.

Dear God
Tonight i remembered that sad little girl we saw in that public washroom. We had been shopping in a small mall in a rather seedy part of town. We were taking a quick bathroom break. As i walked into the bathroom i saw the girl. She had her makeup spread all over the floor which i thought was rather strange but i tried not to stare and retreated into a stall. When i came out she was still there wearing her very tight revealing clothes. As i washed my hands i glanced in the mirror at her, curious. I noticed her shaking uncontrollably as she tried to apply make up over a bruise. I wonder if the shaking was from drugs or fear. Both options are terrible. As i walked out i looked her in the eyes and saw she was crying inside, and for some reason that was more heartbreaking than if she would have let the tears fall. Down the narrow hallway i walked and toward the end there was a man lurking. I realized then that this guy was probably her pimp and my heart wept for her. I wish i could have done something for her. Why hadn't i asked what was wrong? Me with my practically perfect life and her with her torn heart, abused body and tortured soul. Could i have done something even if i'm only 16? Dear God teach me and show me some way to help the less fortunate. You gave my life so that i could reach out and help the ones who don't have anyone else to help them. Help me remember that i am yours, for you to use to help the broken hearts. Please help me not to forget to shine your light. Please Jesus help all the many slaves around the world to be rescued, to find a way to get out, to find a better life in you. In Jesus name, Amen.

That was 3 years ago and I will never forget that girl. I wonder where she is right now...If she's still alive. I don't know if you know this, but there are around 27 million slaves in the world right now. 80% are women and 50% are children. And pregnant women are increasingly being trafficked for their newborns.:'( Its horrifying.

Marie Antoinette

Marie Antoinette is the lady that inspired me and broke my drawing lethargy. Her story is an interesting one! Anyway I do hope i shall draw more again...and paint...life gets busy though. Tis sad!

 So i went without painting for about 3 weeks and then i painted this...it was a bit of a creativity explosion. I think autumn has that effect on me...I love fall!!! I stopped painting for a few days after the top version and then i continued on...I think that i might like the Before painting better....what do you think?Not that it matters because there's no going  back to the older version.
I actually still might work on it more because im not completely satisfied with it yet....im fairly content with the right side but Not the left side. If i happen to work on it more i shall do an update post.
What do you all think i should name the painting? I have zero inspiration in that area...
And i leave you with some lyrics to the song that plays in my head every time i see the colourful leaves flutter through the autumn air...

I saw the autumn leaves peel up off the street,
take wing on the balmy breeze and sweep you off your feet.

You blushed as they scooped you up on sugar maple wings,
to gaze down on the city below, ablaze with wondrous things.

Downy feathers kiss your face and flutter everywhere.
Reality is a lovely place but I wouldn't want to live there.

I wouldn't wanna live there!

Weighed down by heavy lids and lunar lullabies,
I knew you were wide awake because you smile with your eyes.

Downy feathers kiss your face and flutter everywhere.
Reality is a lovely place but I wouldn't want to live there.

From the green belt balcony, the wildfires look so pretty.
Ponderosa canopy, I’d never leave if it were up to me.
To the ruby redwood tree, and to the velvet climbing ivy:
painted all mahogany, I’d never leave if it were up to me.

..If it were up to me..

With a starry brush, paint the dusk venetian blue,
because in the evening hush, you’ll never believe the view.
And when the leaves return and their whisperings fill the night,
they’ll freeze and burn where fire and ice collide.

Can you feel a silk embrace in the satin air?
If we dissolve without a trace, will the real world even care?
Downy feathers kiss your face and flutter everywhere.
Reality is a lovely place but I wouldn't want to live there.

I wouldn't want to live there!

I saw the autumn leaves peel up off the street,
take wing on the balmy breeze and sweep you off your feet.

Anya Jean

So! i haven't posted since august! tsk tsk....it wasn't exactly because i wasn't making art(cause i was...at times) but i just haven't been posting it all...
I drew this portrait quite a long time ago...at the beginning of summer. It looks like the subject(well maybe it doesn't since alot of my family try guessing who it is and fail miserably...lol) but she will have to grow into it... she doesn't look quite that old yet...I'd say that in two or three years she will have grown into this portrait. :)

hope all of you had a delightfully awesome summer!

Spring-time in London

In March a happy thing happened! Some good old friends came to see me and the rest o' my family out here in Ukraine. And during their time here we flew to London England for a few days...4 to be exact..It was a AWESOME to say the least:)  Twas delightful to see all the beautiful old buildings and hear the vibrant history of the places that we visited...I admit, i would have been perfectly content if all we had done was just walked around and looked at the quaint places and majestic architecture. But of course we did the red bus tour and saw the changing of the guards, walked through ancient castles and all those other interesting things:)
I do believe i fell in love with the city. One place in particular i remember. It's in the back of Westminster abbey in a little enclove where there's the college garden with it's beautiful green lawn and old trees, flowers and a cute fountain with school kids in uniforms lounging around...I found it so peaceful and gorgeous stuck in-between the large gothic structure. "There is something about the green against the ancient stone that is just magical...You can see the fairies emerging and dancing up on the flowers and the lawn" quote by Jim Barkman.
One more thing, if any of you guys ever visit London make sure you go to Covent Garden cause its great fun!
I always dreamed of touring London with some friends but never really thought it would happen..goes to show that Dreams do come true!
Cheers to Brittany, Shanda, Josh, Brandon, Mark and David and the great time we had:)

I started painting this soon after i got home from our London experience..um if it looks crooked its because its quite a large painting(like 2feet by 1 and a half...or something) and it was really hard to scan and it had to be pieced on the computer..Its not that crooked in real life(i think...and hope)
Also its for sale.

sketchy sketch sketch

Another drawing of my little sister...done on the same day as the previous one...
twas a different, harder angle to draw...

And now enough about the drawing.. i feel like blabbing. I'm in the blabbing mood, you see.
Life is weird...it really is..How come does time speed up the older you grow? Time....Its such a elusive thing.
How can a period of time feel so long and yet so short? Tis slippery, time is!
Talking about elusive things...Wind.
I love the wind....
Whenever it comes, it calls me to drop whatever i'm doing, to go and be wrapped in its wildness...It brings with it, nostalgia...many memories are swept along with it in its wandering way...
One time the wind picked me up and carried me off...and now still it has the ability to sweep me away...only not bodily now of course(surprise surprise!guess im not as little as i was then)
Outside is the place i see God the most...when i look around at all the beauty and when i'm wrapped in my precious wind i can feel His love all around...He is breathtaking.
Remember to open your eyes to the beauty that's all around you.
