Pinterest~ Dark Fantasy

I am so in love with that first pin. I found it here: Sweet Leigh. The whole editorial is from Italian Vogue and it is just bonkers good. Total Game of Thrones, but better. If I wrote, I’d totally write a fantasy GOT rip off with a gorgeous black princess version of Daenerys Targaryen. Not…

Pinterest~ Indian Summer

Late August, September, and October are Indian Summer here. It’s humid with no breeze, esp at night. As much as I hate the heat I do love the pale blue sky with the golden green leaves. There’s so much to look at. I just want to paint it all.

I have two modes dictated by the seasons: Magic (or Magick if that’s your thing) and Space. Every Autumn and Winter I gravitate towards everything supernatural and every Spring I switch over to technology.
