Be a dreamer. If you don’t know how to dream, you’re dead.

Boredom

“Do you know what it feels like to be aware of every star, every blade of grass? Yes. You do. You call it ‘opening your eyes again.’ But you do it for a moment. We have done it for eternity. No sleep, no rest, just endless… endless experience, endless awareness. Of everything. All the time. How we envy you, envy you! Lucky humans, who can close your minds to the endless deeps of space! You have this thing you call… boredom? That is the rarest talent in the universe! We heard a song — it went ‘Twinkle twinkle little star….’ What power! What wondrous power! You can take a billion trillion tons of flaming matter, a furnace of unimaginable strength, and turn it into a little song for children! You build little worlds, little stories, little shells around your minds, and that keeps infinity at bay and allows you to wake up in the morning without screaming!”

Terry Pratchett quote A Hat Full Of Sky

Phoenix Jacket

Phoenix Jacket

This is my jacket I painted using acrylic colors, pens and gesso. Well, I call it a phoenix jacket. It is kind of tribute to different elements we are surrounded by and also salutation for ancient ones whom has dwell here on earth in past.
The idea in the painting is something like this. On the bottom red and orange area, the sun is being reborn in a shape of bird, green forest king is watching the show as the bird gives nutrients to the earth, birds middlefeathers has some negative colors marking it as a bird from other side, from death, middle parts of tale-feather are green in color sending touch of springtime to the earth, Venus and other planets. In top right there are some icy clouds and rain blowing changes with the wind, next to the space skull are other warmer winds blowing, changing the icy bird-feathers to warmer elements. Space skull is watching the show somewhere around milky way. Sucking or giving life to a sea ender the spaceskull.

All in all I painted it from the heart and I’m pleased about it.
