FAITH, HOPE & LOVE - THE SISTERS OF TRINITY

hi lovely friends💜

it's almost christmas. it's almost a new year.
 how deliciously fast 2018 happened😊

are your thoughts tinkering tiny plans for a new year? i am:)
...
but
...
first
💖
 i am to think of what i am glad for having created in this year we are still in
the image below is one of my faves from this year. 
the trinity sisters
faith hope & love
are their names
this (manipulated ) self-portrait was created 
around 6.30am in richmond london 
early may of this year called 2018

this week howevery
...
 i have finally started to prepare for a christmas
 filled with loved ones like my mom aunt and my step-fathers. i call them both step-fathers since my aunt is my second mother (too my chosen god mother of my mother).
here is a tiny tiny tiny bit more organzied art table / flat of mine
decorated with some tiny christmasy things


mere christianity by c.s lewis
 was recommended to me by my dear friend elizabeth when i lived in new york,
 this book changed my life
 during this time i was a student and could not afford to buy anything extra so every day for some time i went to barnes & noble ( a real bookstore chain, not sure if it's still existing?) to read it for free, i was sitting on the floor of their shop on the second floor on the upper west side for a few days and all made sense.
 i have now bought this book and am re-reading it💜💜💜
letters to a young poet though is a first time reading and i am already felling so inspired by it

&

 then life is just filled with angels angels and some more angels
i have angels in my hair

a roses home filled with light of mine

i am too planning two shoots. one winter solstice one and another inspired by the works of deborah turbeville. i am trying outfits for both ones, here is an option for the deborah turbeville one that i might shoot in the wonders of high gate cemetery
i think i am to change the blouse. i have another white one filled with lace. we'll see...i think the images are to be black and white so the white might be more of a contrast and goodness for the cause
this is me. no make up since creating outfits is not a special occasion or so😂


inspirations for another project i hope to create in the spring of 2019

always always mademoiselle anna pavlova💜

oh and yes
look at that flowery braid!!!

le spectre de la rose

as i am sure you know i do take notes on all i listen to (books and podcasts) each mornings, here is some from this morning💝

"such a sight having never occurred before was almost as wonderful as it was welcome 


before fanny overpowered by a thousand feelings of pain and pleasure could attempt to speak but quickened by one sovereign wish she then called out oh cousin stop a moment 🦋


2019
get my act together and start studying seriously and create art daily
take my gifts seriously and leave madness behind. put madness in to my creations
set up design my life accordingly 🦋
identify based habits 
the artist journey is the journey of getting to know myself and what i am set on this planet to investigate 🦋
study practice create ideas


2019 = my 1st year of my own created MFA program 
the end of my heroe’s journey and beginning of my artist journey 


read kieth richards book


mansfield park 
when they entered the park her perceptions and her pleasures were of the keenest sort
it had been 3 full months 
and the change was from winter to summer her eye fell everywhere on lawns and plantations of the freshest green
and the trees though not fully clothed were in that delightful state
when father beauty is known to be at hand and when while much is actually given to the sight
yet more remains for the imagination 




I AM IN DEAR NEED OF AN EDMUND DEAREST GOD


IMAGINE OPULENCE 


thy will be done this day
today is a day of completion 
i give thanks for this perfect day
miracle shall follow miracle
and wonders shall never seize 


look with wonder at that which is before me


INVEST IN BEAUTY 


MAKE BELIEVE 
with
FAITH & TRUST


ETERNAL YOUTH ETERNAL LIFE 


LIVE IN THE WORLD OF THE WONDEROUS"

ohlalala!!!

so yes now i have finished mansfield park by jane austen and how i loved thee. i now know that i am to read all her books.


i am sending lots of faith hope love and wish you a wonderous christmas and new years filled with joys magic and miracles.


twelve christmas angels

twelve christmas angels met
up near the milky way
to discuss why joy was missing
from the christmas holiday

it gave them such sadness
as they tracked the negative trend
so each decided to do their part
to bring this madness to an end

angel one would touch memories
reminding of the blessing of life
angel two would tenderise hard hearts
removing bitterness and strife

angel three would gather families
from far reaches of the earth
then stir feelings of love and peace
giving hope and joy new birth

angel four would return merry
and christ to holiday greetings
angel five would clear calendars
to make time for family meetings

angel six would flame enthusiasm
angel seven would spread cheer
angel eight would grow generosity
angel nine would diminish fear

angel ten would dispel darkness
by lighting colorful decorations
angel eleven would draw lonely
to warm and friendly celebrations

angel twelve would have the hardest job
bringing wonder back to each heart
and reminding all the people
of how christmas had its start

then, with haste they met the challenge
and made everything alright
they restored the joy and happiness
before that christmas night

so merry christmas to one and all
may every tongue employ
and thank you christmas angels
for bringing back the christmas joy

- loyd c. taylor

hey beautiful creatures😊

how are you all doing?
 i hope it's all good and that everyone is feeling the joy of christmas coming around the corner:))) sunday it starts with the magic of advent. 
it's been such much rain here in epping these past couple of days but other from that there has been beautiful mornings filled with podcasts and books. just started reading mansfield park by jane austen. i hope to get as good a read as tolstoy's anna karenina which i read about a year ago or so.

here's some glimpses of my life this past week💜

i am playing with various tones/ shades/ colors on some of my most recent self-portraits
a nature spirit bewitched by the beauty of the planet



the scenario 
epping forest

a couple of other versions of my candy cake ballerina princesse faerie
she was reaching for the moon and instead become one with the stars 🌟

found this image in my google drive and memories overwhelmed me
i miss my daily afternoon walks in this garden
such magic places
peckham rye park

at home i am having fun exploring with water colours
play play play

 sunday = 1st of advent💓
of course i have invested in advent calendars,
 waiting for 2 of them 
while
