Meeting the wind, for the first time!

Meeting the wind, for the first time!

(Part of my Rodeld stories) The night grew thicker as we approached the long forgotten city, which existence was almost a myth, we glided down through the trees and the leaves moved around our bodies in a welcoming dance. It was a peaceful and quiet night, the wind kissed our faces and caressed Adar's silver armor and seemed to encircle my ancient sword. I could see this sensual dance between this phantom city's air and us, I could hear my breath and the burning beats of my heart, Adar's heart was like the wind itself they would merge and I would hear no difference, while, the wind provoked the fire in my heart to rise, it was pulsating s

The Night Hunter (The beginning)

The sky was red and the ashes were flying, Caring their messages of destruction and death, Phoenix was singing a valiant song of good-bye's to all of those inhibiting it's surface. The morning stars were settling into their daily sleep knowing that when they wake at the  dawn of the next day The world that  use to wake up to their glory would be no more. The blue star was almost a pale white, perhaps it's beautiful color was drained by sadness. This is the only home that I remember, I Was very young when we arrived at the Phoenix surface. I have come to know everything that I know, in this place. I am one with it's ground, one with it

The wedding night...

(Edric Kalyan.) -My Bride awaits my presence in the nuptial chambers of past queens, If she was to tell you this story, at this moment, I would certainly be the villain... And I am, in a way but not in the way the story is been told, perhaps one day it will be all understood and known as it should be but that day is not today, Today I am a husband and a lover, with much anticipation to love, despite the fact that my unloving acts might proceed my warrior, world conqueror and terrifying over-Lord's reputation... In the other side of this wall is a soul that I have loved for many years, even before she was born, then after and then again...

The Night Hunter and his fallen star

The night reigns over the forest when the blue moon is in it's full glory. Her frosty kiss she pressed into the forest trees, to give them, their enchanting sleep. Refreshing them from our fiery land. He shall be here soon...! The trees have fell silent, the nearby creatures rejoice as they sense his presence, and the heart of the forest sings a duet with my heart to celebrate his visit. The wind carries his message to me in the form of whispers... " I am near... I am close...!" His voice echoes in my mind, and paralyzes me. The Night Hunter is at foot, tonight I shall see Ryan. Every cell in my body knows of his proximity... I pace back an

At the altar

At the altar

At the altar he stands as a splendid view before my eyes, I tremble at the vision of him. His well kept red hair, reminds me of the fire that  I no longer possess, Seeing his radiant smile and the power of his stature, I realize some might say, I am fortunate to seal such a fate but my heart won't agree with such replays. Even though my atraction for him I can't denied. There is music playing, the guests are sitting at both sides of my sacrificial road, I suppose the red carpet could be the metaphorical representation of the blood spilling from my heart. All the most red, against this white dress. My black wings urge me to fly, but I do

The wedding day... ( second part of the story )

 It's been a year since I last saw them... I have been told, they're alright! But I can't help but to wonder. They are alive, that I know the guards show me videos of them, when my pain becomes intolerable. My mother's health was frail and my brother is just a boy. I wonder if he cries at night, under the moons, I wonder if I'll ever have his dirty little face in front of me... I want to stroke his hair playfully... Oh boy! he does not like that, he would always say -"I'm not a child Aira! I am a man now, Please don't mess my hair up..." - then he would give me silly smile. I wonder if I will ever hear my mother's blessing. I wonder too

The moons were awake (Updated)

The moons were awake when I rose from my sleep, the guardian was not back yet so I wonder thru this amazing place. There was a river passing through it.   The sounds it made were peaceful, they made me nostalgic, its sounds were much to similar to Adar's heart rhythm. The water was blue but the green and pink moons made a special display of color out of it. I stayed in the forest for days without any news of the guardian. I was very worried but I knew in my heart, he would come for me...  one evening I saw my love flying down to me, it was the most amazing feeling I had ever experience. I could not wait  till he got down so I fle

The day we met (updated)

It was said that one day a warrior with a noble heart will rise from the flesh of my body, to restore the balance in our planet. A warrior with the greatest heart will rise from the descendants of my son, my son who left a long time ago... We have lived  undisturbed for thousands of years past the great lakes of fire. But one morning all changed as I smelled a familiar scent that almost fainted in my memories, The guardian had return and I hoped my son was with him but the smell of him was less significant Than the guardian's scent... ...But I could still feel his presence. I was going to see my son after thousands of years, he has

Devastation( 1 )

"The air was still, everyone was quiet with terror. The smell of burned buildings and decaying flesh was all around us, there was nothing that I had experienced in my life that would have prepared me for this. Our beautiful city in ruins, our king hanged at the top of a tower in some kind of crystal, as a perpetual  remainder of our impending doom. No one saw what happened to the Queen after that terrible ceremony in which she was made to watch, the hanging of her lifeless King, as a trophy for their victory over Brenton city, over all of Phoenix. Our beloved prince was said to have perished in battle the day of the invasion, and our wild

Claws of death ( updated )

Claws of death Everything was still. I felt sick to my stomach and hold on tight to the handle of my sword. We walk silently on a very narrow road between muddy and slimy green waters. The density of trees made it so hard to see, We continued to walk through. Adar signaled me quietly to stop where I was. -"Whatever happens don't wound anyone deadly, fight defensibly and remember I am here next to you at all times."-Adar said to me. There were roars... And then silence and expectations, then we saw him approach us, he looked more dangerous than any thing I have ever seen... -With a question that was more of a threat he said: "

My Bio
"I am always doing what I can't do yet in order to learn how to do it." Vincent Van Gogh (August 1885)

It describes to perfection what I am doing!!!


Hi there:)

My name is Virna,
I am native of Dominican Republic,
I have been living in the states for 13 years,
I've been married for 12, and we are the proud parents of
three boys, Michael, Gabriel and Parker, and our adorable daughter Jasmine:)

I studied business administration in Dominican republic,
it wasn't until the fall of 2010 that I started to take art classes
at the Community Center in Lawrenceburg In.
Discovering there my love for arts.

While at the Community Center I learned landscapes techniques.
I continue to go to the Community Center until the end of the winter in 2010.
After giving birth to baby Parker, I decided to continue my learning journey from home.

Youtube is a wonderful thing!

I enjoy painting every thing but Surrealism and fantasy are definitely my favorites!
Most of my painting will have a story to go with them, and they are of equal importance to me,
I truly hope you enjoy viewing my paintings and reading the descriptions.

Thank you for stopping by,
I hope your day is beautiful:)


Thanks for being my companions in this creative trip:)
