How to be a pre-raphaelite muse

🌹 wear flowy dresses in intense colors and flower patterns
🌹 enjoy art of all kinds
🌹 collect your favorite poems and inspiring quotes
🌹 try to find beauty in everything
🌹 spend time in art galleries, museums, theatres
🌹 be nice to people and charm them more with your intelligence than your look
🌹wear gold and silver jewelry and perfumes with musk and almond
🌹 put flowers in loose hair
🌹 surround yourself with antiques, books and paintings
🌹 music to love: celtic rhythms, harp, “Ceremonials”, orchestral
🌹 care about your inner beauty and mind as much as about your appearance

I want so much. I want a life filled with good friends and fun times. Nights out with good music and maybe one too many drinks. I want to laugh until my cheeks hurt and “last night was so much fun” texts. I want people who care about me enough to turn to me when they need help or support, and return my calls when I seek the same. I want so so so much. I want busy days but still have enough time for self care. I want to spend Sundays in my favorite sweater with a warm cup of tea and nothing but the sound of rain filling up my room, making it feel like time stopped and I have all the time in the world to let my mind wonder. I want to read good books. Inspiring poetry that puts problems in perspective. I want both peace and chaos. I want to find mountains and climb them. I want happiness. Love. Laughter. I want to chase stories to tell when I’m old.

So I saw you don't really like shipping Lapis with anyone but I've seen Jaspis and Lapidot as well with a couple other shipping art with her from you. I hope I'm sounding rude I'm not trying to off that way ;_; But your ok with drawing her with Peridot,Jasper, Pearl etc?

it is true that ive experimented with lapis ships before and drawn them a couple times, but ultimately ive come to the conclusion that i dont enjoy them and they make me really uncomfortable (for reasons i didnt understand at the time, and after more thought to the matter, do understand now). i feel that everyone should be able to explore ships theyre curious about and come to whatever conclusion feels right to them about any particular ship! 

as for lapis herself… to give you some insight, she reminds me of some really nasty people ive had the misfortune of knowing, so shes very unsettling to me. she’s capable of some really terrifying things and its all conveniently hidden under bows and flowing fabric and a delicate thin physique.

aaaaghgghhgh i know this is probably going to upset some people, but i feel like i at least owe it to you all to be honest about my feelings so you can maybe understand where im coming from a bit better! 

as for the content i draw (ive had a lot of asks like “why dont you ever draw this thing”), please remember i do this all for fun!! i choose to draw things that inspire me and seem interesting or challenging or just strike my fancy! jasper is my very favorite so… thats why shes in the majority of my art LOL. i do enjoy drawing other characters and ships, but most of the time im the happiest drawing her, so thats what i do! 

area woman has best night of her life, some how doesn’t end up looking like absolute trash in a picture w/ favorite artist of all time/one of her greatest inspirations
