I’ve been away for awhile…

Posted in Uncategorized on September 1, 2013 by Angelic Shadow

I want to apologize at my absence. Seeing as my last post was almost 2 years ago! I have had quite a few drastic life changes happen to me during this time. I am no longer with my Knyght. It seems he was not meant to be. He chose a different path leaving the children and I. It was best. I wasn’t really happy with him. I struggled for a year and a half with this. I feel I am over it and is much stronger. I still have alot to look forward to in my future. I now have a job as a School Age teacher, I am attending college classes again, and got a new car. I also have been taking care of myself more. I have been on a diet and lost 30 lbs. I feel much better about myself. I still struggle with seeing my beauty, but I hope to change that through time. I see beauty in everyone and I shouldn’t downgrade myself anymore.

Currently, I am taking a Digital Photography class. I decided that even though I am self taught I would like to take a class to see if there was anything I had missed. So far I am taught things I already knew. I do, however, enjoy the assignments. My latest assignment is to take photos of rural landscapes. I have had much fun with this. It is one of my favorite areas to do in photography. I now have the opportunity to get out of the house and travel through my area to find great landscapes!

One of my assignments is to visit the St. Louis Art Fair. If anyone is attending I hope to see you there. I will not be putting any artwork up but perhaps in the future that will be an option. It is free admission so that’s a plus. You only have to worry about parking.

I hope to continue posting my art as well as others in the future. I have found many great artists and is anxious to display them on my blog. If you want to send me links to your portfolios I would love to check out your artworks. As for now I want to feature my dear friend Kyle Paul’s artwork. He is a man of many talents and I adore his work. Here are a few of my favorites:

No Emotions…

I thought I might as well start featuring great artists I admire. I have always gain inspiration watching these great artists on DeviantART. Why not share with everyone 🙂

So my last blog was of Alex London Designs who I just recently discovered. I suggest you check my last blog to see their beautiful photos.

Now I would like to introduce Rebeca Saray. She resides in Madrid. I have been watching her since I started DeviantART back in 2006 and fell in love with her makeup portraits. Through the years of watching she’s went through many stages:  from makeup to retouching to digital art to cinema etc…

She also has a website so check it out too.

Here are her latest uploads on DA that I loved:

My Heart Is Free

Photo/edit: me

Sadly I get my inspiration at night so my table lamp is my light source. I used a Nikon D7000 which I had to return. I was beginning to like it, but I guess my Canon will do 😛 I have been using Tumblr so I forgot about this blog. I did make another one on Blogger so feel free to follow me there too.

Holding Onto Miss Sanity

I wonder when I will actually break?

You avoid me and I want to listen…

I’ve had a tough couple weeks and I’m not sure if it will be better. I had a job, but had to lose it. My patience is wearing thin. I try so hard and it seems to never be enough. I’m exhausted! I tried not to care anymore and it somewhat helps. Then sometimes it just comes flooding back…

I feel angry, hurt, insane, and emotions that I cannot describe. When can I have a vacation?

I need a shoulder to cry on and I don’t trust anyone to do that with. The one person I do trust avoids me…

My love,

I am confused and all I ask is for you to tell me what’s wrong. I will feel better knowing I was there. You say I never listen when I do. You just don’t understand me like I don’t understand you. I am still learning who I really am. I found fears I never knew I had. I remember things I thought was forgotten. Did we lose each other for good? You say it’s not me it’s you. I don’t believe you.  We both changed and I want you back. You blame things that is not meant to be blamed. You take your anger out on those you love.

I’m a fighter and I will stay strong. No matter how far I keep falling I still get back up. I won’t let stupid shit stop what we had. I know you are not weak. You can stay strong too. I am here to help you through the tough times. Let me listen to you…

Cirque De Soleil Makeup Challenge…

Posted in Photography, Self Portraits on February 6, 2011 by faythrose

Here is my Cirque De Soleil theme suggested by my friend Heather.

Cirque De Soleil

Conform

Poisoned Kisses

These are inspired by the Dralion Océane which is the sensual goddess of water: Dralion

Dralion is a harmonious blend of Eastern and Western acrobatic prowess.

They came to St. Louis back in January and I didn’t have the pleasure of seeing it. I hope to see them next time though 🙂

I have more images dedicated to this theme on my DeviantART if you would like to check them out: http://faythofdespair.deviantart.com/gallery/?catpath=/
