Never be open againFalling through pages of Martens on angels Feeling my heart pull west I saw the future dressed as a stranger love in a space-dye vest Love is an act of blood and I'm bleeding a pool in the shape of a heart Beauty projection in the reflection Always the worst way to start Now that you're gone I'm trying to take it Learning to swallow the rage Found a new girl I think we can make it as long as she stays on the page This is not how I want it to end And I'll never be open again There's no one to take my blame if they wanted to There's nothing to keep me sane and it's all the same to you There's nowhere to set my aim so I'm everywhere Never come near me again do you really think I need you I'll never be open again, I could never be open again. I'll never be open again, I could never be open again.

Name my paintings!My Triptych needs a real name.I have just called it this because I really couldn't come up with a good name, but I was never happy about that.Because "Triptych" is just a name for a three part painting, or photo, or whatever. It's not a Name.So I'm asking you all for help. I need a name for the whole series, not just the individual paintings.If you have any suggestion at all, please comment!
A new photographic eraI finally have a DSLR!I have bought my sister's Canon EOS 1000D, so now it's time for a new Era for my photography!Time to re-learn all the technical stuff that I haven't had to care about during my years with a compact camera, and that I have forgotten since I learned photography with my analoge SLR.Time to really dive into the world of lenses, filters and other equipment.And time to enjoy a whole new world of Photography!I'm a very happy Photopath today Love you Sister

Looking for a new founder for DeviantsGalleryUpdate:A new founder has been chosen! Thank you everyone for showing interest and support Hi there everyone!I have been the founder of :icondeviantsgallery: for about 2 years now.Although I love being part of that group, I really can't do the Founder-part anymore. It takes too much energy, to the point that I don't even think it's fun to use DA at all anymore.I'm very sensitive to stress, and having a lot of responsibilities triggers my inner stress so that is why I need to turn this post over to someone that is better fit for such a job.I have asked my fellow admins, but none of them feel up to the task.This group deserves a founder that is dedicated and has a lot of creativity and passion for administrating!And so I ask you if anyone of you would like to take over.This is a large group, +50 000 members, and growing every day.We are a supergroup, and that is necessery to keep up because we have subfolders inside the main
Norman Rockwell, All American DeviantShare|AboutNorman Rockwell, All American DeviantBy techgnoticNorman Rockwell Tribute by SarafinconceptsFew artists have so definitively reflected the lives of average Americans as Norman Rockwell.He began his lifetime dedication to being the “America’s Illustrator” as the 19-year-old art editor for Boys’ Life, the house publication of the Boy Scouts of America. A few years later he assumed his more famous position at The Saturday Evening Post, though he never broke his ties with the Boy Scouts. His first great achievement painting everyday scenes of America in his signature hyper-realistic style was
Collection: StarsShare|AboutStarsPhotographs and paintings of stars occupy that category of things you know are so, and yet it’s not quite possible to believe. One example is radio or television “signals” traveling in “waves” through the air, only to be reassembled for your listening or viewing pleasure in your living room radio or TV. Looking at clusters of stars lighting up the night sky like massive storm clouds, it’s impossible to think of those stars, those points of light, as separate massive burning suns, even though I know it’s so. Sometimes the most powerful magic requires no deception at all. The natural universe is more mystifying in its sheer numbers than any magician’s most mind–bending sleight of hand.“I am like a falli

Collection: Haunted HousesShare|AboutHaunted HousesComing across a deserted house, whether hidden by the distance of a rolling countryside or by the shadows of adjoining city ghetto dwellings, is like stumbling across an unnoticed, unburied corpse. It is obviously dead now, but once it was full of lives. Coming across a haunted house is different. Deserted or still occupied, it is a place where lives, unsatisfied, have refused to move on into a full death. The houses reflect their tenants. They are living dead structures, refusing to return to dust.“What terrified me will terrify others; and I need only describe the spectre which had haunted my midnight pillow”– Mary Shelley

Collection: MasksShare|AboutMasksHalloween is a time for masks. Aliens, zombies, vampires and werewolves will soon walk the suburban streets in search of tasty treats. But then there is the next level of masks—the likenesses of movie stars, politicians and other celebrities with their most unflattering features exaggerated. Cheap shots, to be sure, but alibied as “satire.” We finally arrive at the “non–off–the–rack” mask–making of actual make–up artists. Here’s where the mask one chooses tells us things about the person we only thought we knew. You see, the scariest thing about masks is their very concept—of a friend or loved one, beneath the surface, not really being the person you know at all. That is a truly fearful thi
