The Queen of Technical Nonsense

I drew her eyes 3 years ago and swirled around them in a abstract fever whose meaning I never really understood.

Each time I entered my parent's home I was captivated by her look from the other side of the corridor. I always wondered what unspoken thought could hide behind her pale forehead, what mysterious secret could drive me hypnotized to the depths of her pupils.
One day at in a sudden impulse I grabbed a random blank canvas and started to sketch my Queen again. I painted during one month. Feverishly.

I struggled with the hues to keep her face cold but still feel the life breathing underneath.
I blew wind in her hair and colored her lips with purple.
I spent tenth of hours with tiny brushes to carve the surface of her mechaorganic coat.
I reworked her eyes several times until I felt trapped in her look again.

But I still wonder so many things about her.

I was much pleasantly surprised this morning to find out my Queen had been featured as a daily deviation. She told me that she felt really honored by such a great distinction. Allow me to transmit her words of thankfulness to all of you.

Wow and wow again. I do not understand how you can make her look so soft with oil. I have never used oil paint because they often look yucky and messy to handle. When I was younger at school teachers do not encourage us to use oil paint.

Each time I look at her I am captivated in her eyes, just as you say you were. No words can truly describe the brilliance of this piece, which truly displays what real art is.
