Abandoned Observatory

Did a bit of painting this afternoon, my inspiration picture above is from pinterest.

I first did an outline in pencil, then filled in the lines with a brown sharpie pen.

Adding watercolor to the windows.

Adding the rusted framework and trees.

The finished piece!

Be your self. "Those that matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter."

Well I'm a country girl, so I've never really known what it feels like to live in a big city. I really do like the country though.

10. What is one of the scariest things you've ever done?Currently, just got my wisdom teeth out. Having laughing gas was really weird.

Pinprick Wishes

Oh to dissolve into a soft night sky
while yet the sunset is on the horizon.
To be the first pinpricks
of light to appear.
Wishes freely given.
Oh to be dark clouds 
against a darker blue.
Spreading out to touch
the upper atmosphere.

I have the feeling of being a stagnant pool,
watching life go on around me.
Waiting for some pebble
that never drops,
to spread ripples along my surface.
Don’t get me wrong,
I’m not unhappy,
I just feel that there
should be more to life then this…
I don’t know what.
I look back and I can’t say
I’ve accomplished much of anything.
I am not well know and have few friends.
I know I’m young,
but I am so aware of my life slipping away,
day by day.
Change affects me slowly and in small ways.
I can hardly perceive it,
waiting seems all I can do.
So I wait….for life.
