because she is awesome! She is so kind, intelligent, and talented it's just darn shocking. This is actually my second attempt at a gift art for her; the first was a months-long digital painting that unfortunately destroyed itself. A moment of silence please, for the lost painting. Thank you. As my journal revealed, I went through a period of misery over this, but I was determined to give =ShePaintsWithBlood
a gift. So after wallowing for a while, I started this yesterday. And finished it today! I surprise myself sometimes. I hardly had a plan for this (very rare for me); my only guidance was the feeling of =ShePaintsWithBlood
--just anything that reminded me of her.
I hope you like it,
If you can think of a cool title, please tell it to me!
Pencil, 9x12 in.
References: The flower is a pretty good likeness for a dried specimen my brother gave to me recently. It's a very dark purple and its stem is a pale gold, very beautiful. My cat, Tiger, was a reference for the cat but I took a lot of artistic liberties with him.
I looked at a few clock towers just to get the feel right.
