Wings by Can-Cat Wings by Can-Cat


Thanks to DestinyBlue for posting her Paint your Wings Lineart  [2011].

Finished version: Paint your Wings [2011], by DestinyBlue


Sorry to see that DestinyBlue has been going through some tough times.

As she talks about in her recent journal posting, Thank you through tough times



Lubbly had a wonderful idea for the community to rally behind DestinyBlue… showing support through art for her [and, all those facing such issues].

We'd like to encourage the community to join us in creating such art.  Be sure to tag these creations with #wefeelublue

Deviations may also be submitted to communityrelations We Feel U Blue favorites folder.” 


Health is such a fragile thing, especially when you’re coping with long-term issues like Mental Health and Disabilities.

My Helpers made mistakes, this week, causing me some painful complications. [ow!]


DestinyBlue’s work is brilliant!

It’s curious that in her rendition, the artist can’t see her own wings;

Only those around looking at her; but, she can’t see them herself.

Shadows and light have always intrigued me.

In this version, I’ve tweaked the wings a little; so, she can see what her Shadow Self, or spirit, would look like, in silhouette, if she did have wings.

Don’t you often get an ache in your back; and, when you stretch, it feels like a muscle memory, as if  our bodies, or our souls, did have wings; or, maybe will, again?

Maybe, it’s part of the Collective Unconscious?

This is a variation on my earlier Paint Your Wings .1., which was one of the first things I posted on DA;

And, Paint Your Wings .3., which is a combination with Remnants Lineart,  by DestinyBlue


For DA 17th Birthday Template, [by Patricio Betteo (betteo)], I revisited this before, adding some butterflies and rainbows.

This was fun.

The first house my parents owned was a small bungalow, on a small mountain.

It was specially adapted to help with my disabilities; and, it did; it was a big help;

Until, my Dad sold it, in a fit of pique.

I’m trying really hard to focus on the good things.

Really, really hard.


When we first moved in, there was bare studs and cement floor.

Using some markers, I drew something on the cement floor.

Wonder if it’s still there.

Doesn't she prefer 'Blue'? :shrug:
[Yup, it's in her FAQ, Frequently Asked Questions]
That would be so cool to see her in Artists' Alley. :nod:

While it may state in her FAQ that she prefers being called Blue, Alice has never had a problem with me calling her by her real name here on Deviant Art or in person, and has never once asked me to refer to her as Blue when talking about her here in Deviant Art, so she's pretty fine with it really, otherwise if she asked me to call her Blue and refer to her on this site as Blue, then I would instead, but no, she's never seemed bothered by me calling her Blue, just as I'm not bothered that she's never referred to me by my username or any other friends me and her both have on this website, so yeah, Alice is totally ok with being called by her legal name as she put's it in her FAQ :)

Plus, we've been good friends to one another for a few years now, so good friends don't need to to call themselves to by their usernames;)
