"Art is literacy of the heart" ~ Elliot Eisner

Random Favourites

There are some amazingly talented people on DA and these are my particular favourites! I tend to fave a lot of redheads, forests, mazes, topiary, sundials, gardens, toadstools, cats, cute wild animals, ballet themed shots, landscapes, blue and purple flowers, sculptures and artistic nudes, but there are a lot of other themes to be found in my favourite's folder!

Enter...and enjoy...

Random from Redheads

What can I say? I've always had a thing for redheads, finding them beautiful, mysterious and alluring, and particularly tend to favour long-haired, dreamy/wistful looking models! If you like that look too I am sure you will enjoy the contents of this folder...

Two Loki's...

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 14, 2014, 9:10 AM
  • Mood: Love
  • Reading: Loki fanfiction! *blush*
  • Watching: My manic kitten!

As seems to be the norm with me, I tend to watch movies quite a while after their movie release, and it was the same with the recent (and by recent I mean in years!) bout of Marvel movies. Over Easter hubby and I watched Iron Man 1 and 2 (haven't seen 3 yet), Captain America, Thor 1 and 2, and the Avengers. As a result I was instantly smitten with the character of Loki and the actor Tom Hiddleston. Trying to catch up on the Loki lurve I've been browsing DeviantART for some of the best Loki artwork, which I will feature in this journal.

Around the same time I watched all these Marvel movies, hubby and I got a kitten - an adorable grey, long haired, darling with a love of mischief herself, which is why we called her Loki, despite being a girl!  I am also featuring some of my favourite pics of her in this journal!

So, here is my feature of my two favourite Loki's!

Oh, and a note to those whose artwork I have used...I haven't notified you because DeviantART helpfully does it for you now, so you should get a notification with your messages. I hope it's ok to feature your artwork. If not, please note me and I will remove it.

Some of My Favourite Quotes...

"To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour..."
- William Blake

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
- Buddha (563 BC - 483 BC)

Everything begins and ends, at exactly the right time and place...
- Picnic At Hanging Rock

I wish the ring had never come to me.
I wish none of this had happened.

So do all who live to see such times.
But that is not for them to decide.
All we have to decide is what to do
with the time that is given to us.

Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

- Edgar Allan Poe

Fill yourself with desire and see only illusion,
Empty yourself of desire and understand the great mystery of things.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

- Lao-tzu, The Way of Lao-tzu

Do not fear to hope,
for every time we smell the autumn's dying scent,
we know the primrose time will come again.

- Samuel Coleridge

Time Flies...

John Thornton...

I am just sooo in love with this character, from the brilliant period drama North and South, played by the very talented (and yummy!) Richard Armitage...
