Sun and Moon circled, Day after Night, Night after Day, As summer grew, Eagle spread his wings, but Falcon, She eyed him, jealously, and shrank away. "Oh, he takes night from me!" she cried, "fewer eyes To gaze upon me and my stars!" So envious Moon Could take no more, and chased Sun away!
Night followed Night, and Night followed once more Where Day should be, but Sun could not be seen. Proud, Falcon spread her wings but found them dark! "My light!" She looked up, angry. "Stars! How do you shine When I have no light?" The Stars laughed, "Foolish Moon!" They called, "you do not see? "Sun gives his light not only to Day, but to you, too!"
Falcon was vain no more, but cried out for Eagle, Searching across the world, but he could not be found. "Bright sun!" At last she called, "come back! The Sky, It grows cold and dull without your wings. The Night Shines with naught but laughing stars." A brilliant light cloaked Moon, and she closed her eyes And she knew it was Sun.
"I have spread my wings too wide," Eagle called, "We will share the Sky; in Summer I will fly long, and in Winter, you shall take my perch." And Falcon felt joy. Twice a year, when Day and Night are equal, Eagle and Falcon fly together, each shining bright in the sky.

3 Rumbelle pieces within 20 hours.... oh yeah. I'm having a problem. But it's the good kind.
I had honestly hoped SO HARD that true love's kiss would restore Belle. I think that's maybe what Rumple was trying when he kissed her (or maybe he just wanted to kiss her .) Either way, it's freaking depressing. "In The Name of the Brother" tore my heart out and stomped on it. And I am having such angst for them right now... But yeah, you knew it was gonna happen, with the camera working and all... showing their feet and the town line and all that... Darn them. AGHHHHH!!!! SO DANG SAD.
I needed to draw this picture as therapy for all the Once Upon A Time insanity that's taking over my life right now. I needed to draw them together... even if it's a sad moment.
Commissioned by New West Symphony for their Spring 2011 "Music to See" performance of Rimsky Korsakov's symphony "Scheherazade".
I was chosen among 4 other artists at my school to take on this project. Cropped images from this painting were projected for the audience while the orchestra played the 2nd movement. An amazing experience!

Oh hell yes, Mr. Jared Leto again. I love this guy and the rest of band a lot, as you must have noticed very long time ago
I've wanted to use this particular reference photo since the moment I saw it for the first time, but I've never had guts and courage to give it a try. It was way too tricky. His hair, his clothes, the background, all these things used to make me stay away from this wonderful photo [in my humble opinion: one of Leto's best pictures]. I surprised myself one month ago, because finally I felt like portraying him from that photo. I promised myself this would be my best portrait ever. Then I thought: "If it doesn't turn out to be the best of the best things I've drawn, it must be the best portrait of Jared at least". To decide, if I managed to do it, is up to you, guys :> Anyway, this time I'll skip the advantages/flaws part. I only tell you, that it's the most time-consuming portrait I've ever done. It took me a few weeks to finish it, of course, with breaks. The total time might be [approximately] 45h. The title... I like his gaze here. So oblivious... so it's certain why I chose "Oblivion". It's the title of one of the Thirty Seconds To Mars' first songs. Considering his clothes, "This is war" would fit, too ]. Check out the word on the pocket... "calf". Not sure if such a phrase exists in English, but in Polish does - if someone's gaze looks abstent or dreamy, we call it "a calf gaze", so it fits here One last thing to tell you... it's the last portrait of Jared I've drawn. Yes, you read well: I did mean last, not latest. I've portrayed him so many times, that I decided to do a little break and rest. It's time to draw Tomo and Shannon, don't you think? I haven't drawn them since months so they need some attention for sure! Though I'm pretty sure I'll come back to the younger Leto one day.
Sorry for my long speech. It was kinda farewell speech Every time I want to describe sth briefly, I end up writing an essay
P.S. I must confess something: can you imagine I had to re-draw his hair? When I drew it for the first time, I didn't like the way it turned out, so I erased it and drew again Only I can be SO stupid.
*THIS IS UNFINISHED.... and to be honest not something I am happy with, no matter what way Ive tried to do it... the concept is how art can help you escape reality, so unfinished as it it is, I dont think I have the heart to finish it properly...
I used watercolors (half pans and tubes) on pastelmat (yeah the paper that does crazy things when its loaded with washes ) Going to enter this to the thematic folder of December thefavouriteshowcase.deviantar… in (one of the best groups out there with an amazing founder and solid dedicated art lover )
Big cuddle and credits to for his kind permission to use as a ref!
At this point it is only fair to wish to all and every single one of you a very merry Christmas and a prosperous 2015 filled with joy, love, happiness, inspiration and art!!! Be well and smile my friends!!
The facade of Petrossian in NY is super detailed and awesome, so I just had to paint it to relax, sorry:/ btw I'm sooo pissed off with this romantic holiday atmosphere and lack of snow:/// how about you? anyways, happy holidays everyone! xoxo M.
This is an acrylic painting of a photo I took down in the Niagara gorge this summer.it took 30 hours to complete . its just a small bit of nature that was down at my feet ,growing wild as nature intended but it was so beautiful .
After some master studies on landscapes and scenery I decided to do my own compositions using acrylics. Here's the first one, more will come. Sorry about the image quality, many details lost on this photo... I will try to get a better photo of it. Acrylics on 60x52 cm hardboard canvas (hardboard ripped off from my bookcase )
last edit: I could get a good photo of this picture at last
Take a look at other acrylic landscape paintings of mine:
It's been a while since I last submitted a painting here Nice to be back! A client wanted me to re-paint my old painting [link] on a larger canvas and with some additions, so I did this. This painting is sold.
