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 have been busy creating new works of art in the last few weeks. Again, this incredible surge of creativity washed over me and I couldn’t help but to put it into great use. Here they are!
“Hauntingly Beautiful” is one of those images that I created thinking I wanted to put a flower in the mix, however, it turned out really stunning on its own with the combination of the woods, gradients, and textures.
And lastly, “SoulFlower” rounds out the group of new artwork. I was inspired by a person who bloomed from their tribulations in life, only to shine like the sun when they smiled. The colors represent their happiness and positivity they have with life.
Which one of the four is your favorite? Comment below!
Woo hoo! My 30th post! 🙂
I debuted new artwork on my Soulfully Yours Art Design page on FB. “Carry On” came to me as I finished it. I used different paint brushes, blend modes, and textures to create this abstract Despite what you may have gone through in life, hold your head high and carry on.
What do you think?
Terrible. Yes, I’ve been terrible. I haven’t blogged in over two months!!! *shaking head*
Well, I have an explanation. I’ve been sooooo bogged down with my graphic design classes at school and my older son’s t-ball practice and games. Yes, I’m now officially a t-ball mom. 🙂
Now…back to art. I have been creating a few things. I’ve done another digital abstract painting, a nude abstract, and this latest one called “Headwrap Goddess”.
I used Illustrator to create my goddess, adding gradients and texture. The mud cloth print for her dress I created as well. The background is all Photoshop using a few images with several blend modes. I even added my signature on the bottom right-hand side, which looks way more personal and interesting than typing my name and copyright.
The concept behind the art is to have her surrounded by different elements with her striking beauty: water, sun, wind, and earth.
I really love the outcome. What do you think?
