YAYYY ART!

I have a newly discovered love for candles thanks to the amazing =nayruasukei who got me started... bwahaha <3
And so this painting was born?!

Nilla is pondering some things. HUMMM.

Read into it what you will! Sometimes I just gotta paint for the soouuullll :P :heart:

I also officially decided that I LOVE painting on cardboard. I might do cardboard painting commissions... you know, once I actually finish everything on my to-do list, and who KNOWS how long that'll take!


anyhoo.


media: acrylic and a little colored pencil on cardboard. Hurray!

Please respond to this XD How long have you been painting with acrylics? Like how old were you when you started? :o You're so good! I am 14 and just started but I am having a terribly hard time using them, all though I won't give up XD

those candles remind me of some that I got around Halloween a little while ago. After you lit them, red wax came out so it looked like they were bleeding, LoL.

I use candles all the time with my tarot cards. It let your mind open up to interpret the cards right. Candles are also very soothing some days when you want to scream at someone! LOL

It makes me giggle obnoxiously when my kitty sits like that, with his tail behind his front paws.

Awesome, I love your use of color, line and form. The piece really flows, and I love the design of the animal (cat?) Your variation of line and application of the paint to the cardboard, I find, very visually compelling. Well done.

But tea flavored candles would be fabulous. I bet they have them.
