So it’s only Christmas Eve. I don’t want to forget and not post to say Merry Christmas. I love Christmas and celebrating the savior’s birth. Where I live we barely ever have white Christmas. Even last year where we had a particularly hard winter Christmas wasn’t white. In fact today it’s raining, and yesterday I took a walk with only a light sweater and wasn’t cold. I don’t have much relatives over during the holidays either. Still it’s fun. One tradition we do have, besides the exchanging of presents, started last year when Jasmine got a Christmas puzzle in a garage sale, so now we do that every year while listening to something Christmas-y. Last year it was Charles Diken’s “A Christmas Carol” and this year it was just general Christmas music. “A Christmas Carol” is actually really funny, which is surprising considering it’s a classic. For some reason classics aren’t usually funny unless they’re Jane Austin or something. I don’t know why. Even my sister who’s a humanity major doesn’t know why. Well, anyway, Merry Christmas!
I finished two colored pencil artworks last weekend, them three pastels this morning. It’s Christmas break, so I have plenty of time. Also as an early Christmas present one of my sisters got blending chalks, which she gave to me because it was basically the chalk pastels I really liked.
This first picture I have is entitled Masquerade. It was based off of a picture my older sister Azure had done. The idea of Masquerade is the idea of wearing a costume that represents something about you with out actually being you. The girl talking to the cat is me, and scattered about the room are my various characters. The idea for my dress came from the fact that I never can understand myself, because as soon as I rip off one layer of me theres always one underneath. The bottom layer is white the color of purity and victory.
Ihe next picture is entitled Come Fly With Me. This was based off of a doodle out of my doodle notebook. There pictured is Dreamer and Harold, my two lovers from Dreamer’s Story. Well, two main lovers. I have lots more couples. Hey, I like romance novels. Possibly because I still believe in true love. People who believe in that are become hard to come by these days. They either think it doesn’t exists, or it’s magic, and it isn’t either, but I’m off topic. Anyway that picture is of them flying on Dreamer’s pegasus Lyric through the sky. That was a lot of indigo blue to make it.
This next one is of an angel in the demon’s cave, because that’s it’s title. I really don’t have anything to say about it.
This one if of a girl by a tree. The title if Found You, which doesn’t seem to make sense but it was inspired by a manga… anyway the girl actually found a spirit by the tree.
This last one is actually somewhat religious. I should state right now I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Have always been one and always will. There is this one bit in the Book of Mormon that is called the tree of life about people pressing through the darkness to the Tree of Life despite people pointing and laughing at them. If you look very closely you can see the people pointing.
