Förnuft har inget med kreativitet att göra...

... därför stannade jag uppe alldeles för länge ikväll, ba'fö'att jag drabbades av kreativitetsfnatt! :) När jag egentligen borde sova, sova, sova. Vågar inte ens tänka på hur trött jag ska vara imorgon. Men det är det värt! Sova är bra, nödvändigt, viktigt. Men kreativitet är viktigare. I långa loppet.

I raise a glass
Make a toast
A toast in your honor
I hear you laugh
and beg me not to dance
cause on your right standing by
is Mr. Bojangles
With a toast he's telling me it's time
to raise a glass
Make a toast
A toast in your honor

(Tori Amos, "Toast", The Beekeeper, 2005. Full lyrics here)

In memory of my mom, my gran and my auntie B. I will always miss and love you guys.

Aren't You Sweet? - Not Especially

Photobucket
(Mixed media. Acrylics, water colours, collage. 31 x 41 cm)
800 kr

A quote from the Charlaine Harris novel Dead until Dark came to my mind as I was pondering what to do for the Illustration Friday prompt this week, "Sugary". In the novel, a vampire asks the heroine:
- Aren't you sweet?
And she promptly, wonderfully answers:
- Not especially.
I really love that line!
And seeing as how women are often supposed and portrayed to be wee sweet things, when most of us really are not especially, I thought that this would be fun to work with for this prompt. I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I did working on it.

For Inspire Me Thursday - "Papercut":
... draw inspiration from papercutting, the art of cutting paper designs
Not sure I did this "correctly" :) but hey it's my interpretation and I did cut out figures ;)

Originally, this was supposed to be much more light and fun, but then the queen stepped in and took over completely, having all the fun herself, as queens tend to do - and keep in mind, this is a rock queen :)

For Inspire Me Thursday - "Storyteller".

This prompt had me thinking about women and our histories, the difficulties to tell those stories in our own words, since there has always been and always seem to be Someone Else to tell them - or ignore them. Also inspired by the Dixie Chicks documentary "Shut Up and Sing"

Suck, detta halsband är helt omöjligt att fotografera - måste förklaras (för att inte tala om ses)! De små pärlorna är genomgående trädda silver och petroleumblå om vartannat. Sötvattenspärlorna är mörkt silverblågråa. Rektangeln (snäckskal) skiftar i grått och petroleumblå. Glashängena längst ned är mörkblåa. Det ligger mycket tanke och jobb (pärlorna jäklades med mig hela tiden) bakom detta halsband, därav namnet.

For Illustration Friday - "Island".
A truly disturbing song, which reminds me of... well, let's just say that I loved h** too much...

Lustigt, egentligen...

... hur fort lek kan övergå till allvar när det gäller skapande...
... to be continued!

i'm trying not to move
it's just your ghost passing through
it's just your ghost passing through
and now i'm quite sure
there's a light in your platoon
i never seen a light move
like yours can do to me
so now i'm wishing
for my best impression
of my best angie dickinson
but now i've got to worry
'cause boy you still look pretty to me
but i've got a place to go
i've got a ticket to your late show
and i'm worrying cause even still
you sure are pretty
when you're putting the damage on

(Tori Amos, "Putting the Damage On", Boys for Pele, 1996
