Cry Of The Moon by Wotansvogel

Wow. Everything about this image is excellent. The angle is unique, as is the positioning of the gryphon. The details in the moon are s...

Beautiful! The simplicity of this really caught my eye. The stem and seeds are really unique - I don't think I've ever seen anything li...

I don't feel like studying today.

Got some groceries, and am drinking my last cup of cocoa, from a can that I've had since around 2000. Makes me feel a little melancholy - it's feels like from a former life. I wasn't married then. I lived in a small city in the prairies. My main form of transportation back then was my bike. I didn't have a lot of money, as my job paid me not much more than minimum wage.

I remember when I bought the two cans of cocoa, there was a volunteer in our fair trade shop, and when we opened the shipment, two cardboard cans had gotten damaged. I called the supplier, who refunded us. I was thinking it was such a waste to throw away the cans, there's nothing wrong with them, there's just a hole in the side. She must have knew what I was thinking, because she immediately said, "Don't you dare buy them just because they're damaged!"

I don't really like cocoa.

But I bought them anyway.

The cocoa was quite bitter, I mixed sugar in with it and would drink it in winter with some water and milk. Some of it I used in baking, making cocoa oatmeal cookies.

I wonder how she's doing...I'm not sure she's still alive. She was about 74 at that time. A wonderful lady, she had served in WWII as a nurse. I admired her, she was still very active and volunteered at a lot of different organizations. I hope I can be like her when I reach her age, and have good health.

The last sip was really rather sweet...

I am a self-taught aboriginal artist. I enjoy painting in the Ojibwe or Woodlands style, which depicts energy lines emanating from living and non-living subjects. I also paint things and scenes that inspire me from nature.

I am also greatly inspired by Asian artwork, especially by ukiyo-e or woodblock prints. I also enjoy painting with traditional ink.

I also have my own website at www.ojibwe-art.ca
