Sleepy Sundays: Jellies

Have you ever seen a jellyfish in its natural habitat? Ever been stung by one? (I hear it’s quite painful.)

Many moons ago, when I was just a teensy little daydreamer, there came the realization that I was very much drawn to the water. The ocean has always been a place where I find a deep calm and a strange sense of belonging. Maybe it’s the fact that my zodiac is a water sign. Perhaps, it has something to do with a past life. Whatever the case may be, I’m still fascinated by all of its mystery to this day.

This artwork was inspired by a day at the beach where I scooped up a jellyfish in my hands just to get a closer look at the details. I was careful to keep the intruiging little friend still submerged in the water. Surprisingly, I was not stung. Seconds later though, my cousin, however, was—right in the butt.

What kinds of creatures have you met at the beach?

Have a relaxing Sunday, loves! Some exciting things coming up!

Sleepy Sundays: Lighthouse

It’s been quite a long while since we shared any photos here. This week, while making some tough decisions, I decided we do just that. This photo is extremely old. It was taken around 1991, and I’m not very sure just which member of my family took it.

If this site stays standing through the rest of this year, (much like this lighthouse still is) I plan on working this into my art somehow. I already have some ideas.

Have you taken any trips lately? Do you plan to?

Have a bright Sunday!
