Sudden inspiration comes at wanton times, awkward moments...places in your life when you aren't expecting it.

Not sure where I was going with that, besides what I was thinking about just now.

This is a journal, is it not? I can write whatever I wish here, can I not?

As I continue, however, I would like you to know this is just my view of it, not something self-centered, not something to put myself on a high-horse.

I find this strange phenomenon in my art, often times, it being that I find my artwork being a sort of window to my soul...a picture of poetry I wish I could place on paper in words. If you could describe your art - do you think it could also describe you in it's own way, right back? If it can't, what is your art to you, just a doodle...something on a page which you were made to draw, or just saw in your mind? Would that something you saw in your mind not be a window to your soul?

I believe mine are. Why? Well, I think of the pictures I draw (the good ones) and when they manifest. It is not always...they come when they please. Sometimes the pictures in my head are beyond my artistic reach, which is a very frustrating sort of time when I often throw papers in my floor and my bird goes and chews on them.

I do feel though that the artwork I do, since I cannot simply think the pictures up, is a window to who I am. It describes me, despite my inadequate skills.

Drawing these things is like a prophet putting into words a prophecy he sees. Others do not quite understand it, but the words are something that gets them closer to perhaps, one day, being enlightened.

Firstly, I'd like to point out that I have been a member of deviantart for 6 years, not 3, considering I changed names after awhile from one I no longer wanted due to ... personal matters. </end bragging here> (the-crimson-heiress.deviantart… - you may recognize the photo of younger, less-silly me, rocking a spider-man necklace. Yes. I was so win in High School.)
There's not much to know besides I do art for fun more than for a career, and that I love to draw for a good pastime and for peoples birthdays etc. I take photographs everywhere, I don't go anywhere without my camera, and I wish there was more of a market for such talent in the world.

Also, some words of wisdom:
In a world of nonsense, everything something is, it isn't, what it could be, couldn't, and what it would be, wouldn't.

Yesterday is History, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift, that's why it's called the present. ~Grand Master Ooguay, Kung Fu Panda

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!

Hi there you've been hugged..by meeee!!
Send one to all your friends who you think deserve a hug (which, hopefully includes the person who sent it to you)!!

You might send it to your enemies as well!
It'll really make them stop and think!!!

If you don't receive this back, nobody likes you, and they wish you'd stop bugging them!

If you receive this back 1 time, open up! Find more friends, enemies, or enemies pretending to be friends

If you receive this back 2 times, you're off to a good start! (Unless you sent it to yourself! That's cheating!)

If you receive this back 3 times, you're a good friend.

If you receive this back 4 times, you're truly loved as a friend!!
