One Last Kiss
Psst. I pop open a can of beer and take a sip. Ahh, that’s the stuff! You humans are so lucky.
Seriously, I am currently sitting around on my bed in a messy college dorm just hanging out and watching Death Note. You guys get all this time to slack off and do nothing. You even have a period of time in your lives dedicated to figuring out what you’re going to do with the rest of your lives. I wish my kind had breaks and choices. I just wanted to get away from it all. So when The Creators said they needed someone to investigate the human realm for a while, I signed up for the mission.
My human stomach drops a little and I get a little nauseous when I think about the mission. I’ve been putting off trying to complete it for a while now. There are a stack of memos and notes from The Creators next to me saying we’re close to the end now. I can feel it too – the air here is thick with mana and I can feel it buzzing in my human heart, making the hairs on thi

Black Cat
There was something familiar about today.
Liz couldn’t put her finger on it, but there was a distinct feeling of déjà vu. Nonetheless it was just an ordinary October day, one like the many others. The sky was overcast, trees rustled in the wind and she was walking her six year old daughter Bettie home, like always. Suddenly, a glossy black cat leapt out from the bushes onto the pavement, blocking their path.
“What the?” Liz breathed, but Bettie ran up to it yelling, “Kitty!”
The cat stayed rigid, only moving its bright green eyes to Bettie as she bent down to pet it.
“Be careful,” Liz said. “That cat could bite.”
“No, he likes me.” Bettie went round the cat and tried to pick him up, which was a struggle. Despite this, the cat didn’t resist. In fact, he seemed to relax, which was odd considering he was being treated quite roughly. Even after Liz told Bettie to put the cat down, it followed Liz and Bettie l

Hello everyone! I am somewhat back. I'm back in Australia at least. England has been very interesting and educational. During my time there I have been encouraged a bit in my art and I've even sold some art at markets as well! :)

I've also finally gotten around to opening an Etsy where I've been promoting my original art, cards and prints of my work: www.etsy.com/uk/shop/Charlenes…

Have a great day!

Turtle Doves

“Two Turtle Doves” from the 12 Days of Christmas under a mistletoe.

This initial reference picture was of two collared doves which I had to modify into turtle doves. I have since found out the European turtle dove are somewhat endangered now due to habitat loss, climate change, hunting and competition with the collared dove which are all a bit sad for the love bird of Christmas.

Let the Rain
"I want to darken in the skies
Open the floodgates up
I want to change my mind
I want to be enough
I want the water in my eyes
I want to cry until the end of time

I want to let the rain come down
Make a brand new ground
Let the rain come down
Let the rain come down
Make a brand new ground
Let the rain come down tonight"

Let the Rain by Sara Barielles from Kaleidoscope Heart.

I also had "Come Clean" by Hillary Duff stuck in my head whilst painting this.
