my father lived in India
my father is a man of many colors.
on the nights when the moon stays asleep,
he lotions his palms with pomegranate juice.
the sugared blood pools in the creases of his
skin, staining it India’s red.
sometimes, my father scrubs his hands until
they are nothing but flesh & fruit rinds.
when he was younger—all skinned knees and pocket
knives—he must've slipped on a thousand marbles.
my father’s father was a welder who rolled and spun
steel into tiny spheres.
when he died, my father’s hands became blue and
free of pocket knives. to this day, he keeps a bag
of marbles on our mantle.
from time to time, he shakes the cool metal into  
his open palms and waterfalls it back and forth.
see, this is the trouble with blue hands:
they never let go of the things that scar them.
they try so hard to be red again.
my father doesn't like whistling because
an old woman in India told him it was uncivilized.
she perched herself on the edge of the Ganges River
and kneaded

The artwork looks great! I love the way it goes from light to dark. The motion of the ribbon and wings looks great and very convincing ...

Like always, this is a beautiful work by you. I love the way the glow is added to the ground and that giant lamp. The girl is beautiful...

Calling out for mentees

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 28, 2015, 10:13 AM

Hey all!

So I've got some time on my hands and thought I could mentor a few people in both photo-manipulation art and drawing/watercolor painting. I will be creating a Facebook group for it as I am not too active on dA anymore. So you must have a Facebook account. If any of you are interested, please let me know. I will only be taking a few mentees at the moment. 

Additionally, if you have any requests for a tutorial, let me know.

Oh and a quick question, I just realized, no DDs at the bottom. Is that the new dA thing? No DD thumbnails on all pages?

Hope all my dA friends are doing well.
