Yesterday, I had the wonderful opportunity to model for !YODA and for jewelry designer, Lola de’Carmen. The neckpiece that I modeled is just exquisite. I loved it so much. It’s been about six months since I’d last got in front of the lens for a photographer. However, I had an absolute blast! I also photographed a model by the name of Charlye Lee. I’m currently working on those edits and will share in another post.
Here are a couple of images from yesterday’s shoot. The first image is from the Lola de’Carmen jewelry line. The second is the “Black Coffee” and yes, I was covered in coffee. 🙂
I love both images a great deal. What do you think??
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
There are a few websites that I frequent a bit if I need some design inspiration. Abduzeedo is one site that I absolutely love to pieces. From photography to typography to illustrations, the site is full of wonderful posts. I won’t get into great deal about it, just go visit the site and be inspired!
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.
