Well folks, I've been trying to expand my creative vision (as it were), and have come to photography.
This is my piano. Unfortunatly, I don't actually play it. Time to get on that. But for now, it provides a lovely subject.
This is just the view out my front window when the clouds are in interesting formations.
This one has a bit more of a story behind it. The front window of my house is rather large, and sadly, birds can see through it to the windows at the back of the house, and don't realize that there is a pane of glass there. As I am one of the few willing to actually go find the deceased birds and take them out of the bushes, I end up walking around to the back of my house with a dead bird a couple times a year. It makes me retrospective. So the last time it happened, I decided to take pictures of it. This is how I found the poor thing, it had landed in the bush by my door. (for anyone wondering, it is a Cedar Waxwing.)
Comments and/or criticism would be greatly appreciated!
But Everyone must have a reason to be melancholy, even if they are a lowly dino. Sherry`s story is most unfortunate. She was once a happy, care-free dino. But one day, she found out that she had to get a lobotomy. Unfortunatly, a severe personality change resulted. Her fancy-free manner deserted her, and she became low-spirited. Poor Sherry!
I was once again struck with inspiration to make some sad critters. So here they are, the newest members of the melancholy community, I'm pleases to introduce Drystan, Arista, and Horace.
This is Drystan, he is extremely cynical. As a result, none of the other bunnies really enjoy being around him. He doesn't have many friends. So he's melancholy. But he is still smirking. His name means "riot" or "tumult" this is, incidentally, what he causes.
Arista's name means "ear of corn". It is refering to her huge and disproportionate ears. She had a repressive childhood. She has trust issues, poor dear. So she won't tell all of the reasons that she is melancholy.
Lastly (for this topic!) There is Horace. He has very short legs. He could never keep up with the other bears.
He wants to be a movie-star, but he is really uncomfortable in front of the camera, making his aspiration impossible. No wonder he is melancholic, poor thing. See the fidgety look on his face?
This is Milton Ohkropir, the melancholic dino. Why is he melancholic? Well, his mouth i in the wrong place, and he is a plastic surgery disaster. Notice how his waist is smaller than his neck? Notice his long scar going around his arm? Poor Milton. No wonder he is melancholic.
I don't know how it works out, but on the soldest day of the year so far, I decided to make a swimsuit.
Forgive the modeling with the shirt underneath, like I said, it's cold
In the pictures it kindof looks brown, but it is in fact black with white polka dots. I drafted a rough pattern, and then used the good old method of trial and error to finish it. I'm really happy with the results!!
I went to a friend's house for the afternoon, and she taught me as much as one can in a single afternoon. Who knew weaving was so involved??
THe parts where the edges get all loopy and not good is where I started weaving We got bored of the green after a bit, and decided to have fun with color!! And then she geave it to me, and I was made happy!!
detail of the end bit. The color is a bit off, on account of my room being north-facing and there being little daylight.
