The only thing that has finally gotten me into the holiday spirit #letitsnowcinnamonandpowderedsugar #thisisheaven
In the darkness of the forest he saw her, and whispered her name, Melusina, and at that summoning she rose out of the water and he saw that she was a woman of cool and complete beauty to the waist, and below she was scaled, like a fish. She promised him that she would come to him and be his wife, she promised him that she would make him as happy as a mortal woman can, she promised him that she would curb her wild side, her tidal nature, if he in return would let her have a time when she could be herself again, for just a little while, a water goddess once more. She knew that being a mortal woman is hard on the heart, hard on the feet. He promised her that he would give her everything, everything she wanted, as men in love always do. And she trusted him despite herself, as women in love always do.
The tragedy of Melusina, whatever language tells it, whatever tune it sings, is that a man will always promise more than he can do to a woman he cannot understand.
A man may love her if he keeps her secret and lets her alone to bathe, and she may love him in return until he breaks his word, as men always do, and she sweeps him into the deeps, with her fishy tail, and turns his faithless blood to water.

So I’ve been commissioned by lovely botanycameos to make another Khan paintings and how could I refuse? ;)
Recently I’ve been trying to ease up on all the textures and brushes, but with this ones I let myself go bonkers and it was just pure joy to paint (especially the colour one) :)

Just a few months ago, we had no idea he’d be gone from our physical Earth so quickly. The last thing he said to me was to go out and enjoy my life. I know he had many adventures, successes, loses, and tests, and lived a full life, and only wants the best for everyone staying here. Through death, he has taught me the beauty of life and how it is so important to cherish each moment and treat this time as a gift. After a short but hard battle with cancer, I know he’s at peace now, in Heaven with my Granny Thelma. I know they’ll both always be watching over me and I’ll never forget any of my memories of them. It’s almost perfect how I can only recall happy moments with both of them. I love my Poppa Bear and Granny Thelma so much and look forward to seeing them again someday. #restinpeace #iloveyou
What’s the matter with you people? Don’t you like amusement parks?
When you arise in the morning think of what a privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love.

An arrow can be shot only by pulling it backward. So when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means that it’s going to launch you into something great.
So just take a deep breath and keep aiming.
" I suggested him [Billie Joe] that my secret dream was that someday he would play Saint Jimmy and I saw a little light behind his eyes, a flicker of excitement. He said ” Oh really, you think so? ” I’m like ” Uh-huh! “. And the next day he called and said ” Oh my god, are you serious about this? I’m shitting! “
