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!

The new beginning for Snapping Turtle now has its home cozy here at CardCastles. We are adding to the gallery with both old & new designs as fast as we can. With a lot going on in our personal life, some of these newer designs have been a welcome break. This concept is planned for greeting cards and children’s wall art for kid’s rooms and possibly even classrooms, we’ll see depending on who bites. 🙂

Have a peaceful weekend!
