The Prophetic Gaze by S-doll The Prophetic Gaze by S-doll
The bees sting secretly
behind my ear
making sweet honey puss dripping with
"dying dying"
behind my ear

don't you see?

I told you it was going to
happen

The flower and ants are behaving quite well
don't you agree?

And from the moist depth of my my head
I extracted the egg

A prophetic gaze

Follow the lines in the palms of my hand
as a road map
to the sun

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`
ps:
there is a 5 day storm down here in California, so lighting was unavailable for a decent picture....
so i scanned it, and of course, the scanner ate up all the delicate colors and lines D:
i will upload a better pic of it soon

on another note, i have grown derangedly obsessed with details...

this piece is actually very symbolic

it is free for interpretation :- )

i used a reference for that giant insect as part of her arm.. it is called, a Harlequin Longhorn... drawn completely out of proportion and scientifically incorrect. i also used a reference for the flowers, but i'm not sure what those flowers are called cause the book i am using has them labeled in another language i can't quite identify...

i had a very very strong hunger for super detailed paper and ink drawing, so here it is!

drawing can be physically exhausting


------
watercolor
gold acrylic
pen and ink over pencil

last night i had a dream that there was a bee crawling around under my skin. when it emerged it left a crater in my leg and my fiance tore its wings off.

this piece is absolutely incredible.

that's a very interesting dream...
the bee symbolizes hard work..
perhaps you were stressing from some kind of obligations/work you were indepted to doing...?

really?? lol
when you were rescued in your dream by your fiance also goes on to say that you are neglecting a part of yourself.. so perhaps you are trying to avoid some unfulfilled duties

ah! sorry if i'm going too far with this! dreams are very strange indeed! ; A ;
