i got inspired after reading Inverloch (Seraph Inn). so i decided to make a character of my own.

its been in the back of my head, to make a character with white hair and cherry red eyes. so here is one version of her. trying to figure out what to call her. Leith came to mind. but its a guys name. so her name is Leitha. (which means forgetful. leith means meadow).

i feel this picture needs a background. i just don't know what. i might cut the picture out, and stick it to some nice patterned paper.

yeah, its not the best picture (gah! look at those arms and hands. terrible... and that flame light magic stuff... *hides*) but it was only supposed to be a character sketch. you know, get the colouring and clothes.

Link the dark 20

i am, we are, facing a slight issue at the moment. though, i am sure some people would not think it is, i would tend to think that they have no real clue what this is like.
i am sure, if you are so interested, you could ask.

i was reading psalm 119 last night, and some of it made my heart ache. i want to be like that psalmist. to reach God, and follow his law. more than that, to love His word. his decrees. to experience God through his word. i suggest, if you havent already, to go read through the entire 150 or so verses. it is worth it.

Link the dark 19

i am exhausted from crying. i feel numb, almost emotionless.

why do i let things get to me? why do i care if people show an interest in me or not? i guess i just want to know, and be shown that i am loved and even liked.

maybe i'm expecting too much from people...

gouache, and watercolour. i was originally going to draw it happy, but then my emotions changed.

the face doesn't really look like me.

link the dark 18

this one is birthed from the Jeff Buckley song Hallelujah, and the Matt Redman song "Blessed be Your Name".
it is specially dedicated to Paxton, my most recent commenter, the one who i do not know, who left a lovely long comment. thank you. :)

the background is from some excellent wrapping paper, the words are my own based on matt redmans song 'blessed be Your name'. the photo is of my mum when she was 17.

My semi new years resolution was to pray for courage each day. i do not know why, but i fear. i am afraid. i admire and look up to people who are brave, who don't fear.

i ask of the Lord for courage, to do those things which terrify me, and they seem so overwhelming and numerous.

Link the Dark 16

Done before bed last night. i was in a pretty down mood.
stuff has been going on in my head, and in my life that is trying to get control of me. its getting pretty hard to keep fighting against it.

yesterday, i just wanted someone to talk to, to dump my mind and thoughts on. but no one was being particularly chatty.

the picture i took from Frankie, and is by artist Eveline Tarunadjaja.
pretty green paper, and buttons.

Link the Dark 15

My boyfriend is about as far away from me as he can possible be, and still be in australia.
im tired. and im lonely. i miss having people to hang around with, joke with, laugh with.
makes me feel insecure.

i used the random scraps of paper i discarded from making my other collages. so its a bit messy looking. but i was inspired.


Laura Study

I drew my friend Laura, when sitting behind her in church yesterday.
it looks alright, but nothing brilliant.

oh, and my scanner is dirty, thus the weird looking blob mark just behind her ear. (gah, you know how difficult drawing ears is?! particulary when the person keeps on moving..)

Link the dark 13

he goes up north tomorrow. for three weeks. on the day we have been dating for 6 months. all long distance. me one end of the country, him at the other. two hours time difference between us.

i just want to be able to see him everyday. to go out with him on 'dates'. to the movies. to dinner. to hang with friends together. sit next to each other in church.

to be able to hug him. hold his hand. to just look at him. to hear him speak. to smell him. to kiss him. sigh...

materials: a drawing of mine, 5 wooden hearts, patterned paper, the king and queen of hearts playing cards.
