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? 🙂
I love the deep richness of the tones and textures here. I’m thinking that maybe I should create a series based on this.
What do you all 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?
Today I was very surprised by a beautiful rendering from NY-based photographer/illustrator Leon PhotoWerks. I met Leon through Model Mayhem when I first tried to get my break in maternity modeling a few years ago. I’ve been in touch with him ever since. I just couldn’t get over the details. He’s very gifted both behind the lens and on paper. This really makes me want to pick up my pencils and sketch book to draw again. I’m so grateful to know a fabulous talent such as him and hopefully we’ll get to collaborate on a photo shoot soon. Thank you, Leon!
