Lately, I’ve been in a blue mood. I got tired of looking like a total bum around the house (I’m a stay at home wife and mom) and decided to take a couple of self-portraits. I don’t take my own pictures with the thought of “Oh, I’m hot” or any other craziness. It’s more of an evolution for me. Every photo has a different mood and I capture it as I go. Here are a couple of images that I wanted to share.
Do you take self-portraits? What do they mean to you?
Now, normally I don’t post my poetry with my artwork, but this is the exception.
What most folks don’t know is that I write. I love writing as much as art. I have a bunch of stories and poems that I’ve written, however, I’ve been debating whether or not to feature it as well along with the artwork.
I wrote “midnight blue” about a month ago. It’s an erotic, sensual prose. I figured today was a great idea to create an art piece to coordinate with it. Again, I used Illustrator and Photoshop to create this piece. I absolutely love it. I planned to put this on my FB artist’s page, but I didn’t want to chance someone reporting me and being banned from posting images. I figured this is a more open-minded place to post this particular poem and artwork.
Here it is…
his strong, gorgeous body was bathed
in midnight blue mixed with
the illuminating glow of the full moon
his eyes shined brightly like a starry sky
his sensuality was such a surprise
to my eyes–
he captivated me with his masculinity
fantasies of my softness meeting his hardness
as the moon aglow high in the sky
gentle squeezes and sweet whispers
grinding hips and deep moans
songs of passionate bliss
filling the room
i sighed deeply
from my daydream
and allowed it
to burn my memory
as a fulfillment in my heart ©bth2013
I decided to create three more pieces of art to compliment Shine I. What do you all think? 🙂
