A heavenly choir of engines
Fills the steepled night
Lit up by the holy stars
Of the building’s light
A dazzling puzzle of dull grey glass
Built up of words unsaid
Try to piece it all together
But it falls to pieces instead
All the people’s prayers for more
Answered by department stores
The owners strike fear in the masses
With threats of sales and taxes
If you listen closely,
On the sickly breeze
You can hear the quiet cries,
The softly muttered pleas:
Is there any blood inside
This whirring ticking heart?
Anything still alive
That hasn’t yet been torn apart?
Over shimmering fields of concrete
And great pluming c
Painting is addictive.
We become addicted to the sense of satisfaction we get from finishing a painting. But yet, our thirst for it is never sated, because we always want to create larger, more beautiful, more complicated, more meaningful art, to get more satisfaction from it.
There's always that gnawing feeling, the need to create, the need to satisfy the hunger. If the whole is not filled, we go crazy, the need is too much, and after hours of thinking and gnawing on pencils we explode and end up splatting paint furiously onto some available surface, to get some temporary form of gratification.
Well, that's what I think anyway.
I just found out that an anonymous deviant gave me 1 year premium membership :D
So to whoever is the amazing person that gave this special Christmas present,
thank you so much!
It means a lot to me and I was so excited when I found out :)
A very happy Christmas and a happy new year to everyone ^^
Since I actually have some watchers now (Yay!) I think I'll write a journal :D
So... I'm on summer holidays now, so I have a lot of time for painting and what not.
Next year is my final year, and we've already got the themes we have to paint on for art:
- the world within us
- the world around us
Which are pretty broad topics :)
So I guess I'm going to be trying to experiment with styles and meaning,
and hopefully along the way I'll think of something good to paint for my final next year :P
If anyone has any suggestions, leave a comment :)
Also, it would be great if people could comment saying what type of artworks they would like
