Yes, all that detail work is stunning.


I am delighted to see that you've noticed the little details... to me, it is those smaller things that really add to an image's overall power. That "wow" factor, so to speak! I remember way back when I first started with black and white ink drawings... I always loved adding the tiny, minute details to them, and fleshing out my ideas until what came out on paper matched the vision I had in my mind for whatever it was that I was striving to depict. I guess you could say I've had a lifelong love for art in all of its' diverse forms... be it art, music, or writing! *Smiles* :)

Here is one of my most recent works of art from my gallery over at DeviantArt. This one is called "Seraphim Descending". Here is the description I wrote for it as it appears in my gallery:

"A powerful and transcendent vision of a Seraphim Angel descending from Heaven in all of her power and glory. She is a wholly androgynous being, bereft of all the trappings of the mortal conception of gender, but like all Angels identifies as the gender of her choice. In her case, that would be female. Her blue skin is covered in tiny blue eyes, and all of her eyes glow with a bluish radiance. Six red wings spread out from her back, and two smaller wings crown her equally red hair. These great wings are manifestations of the divine fire from which she was first created, and which is ever a part of her being. Normally, when dealing with mortals, she uses her wings to cover her otherworldly and inhuman form, lest the sight of her revealed overwhelm the senses. But when she prepares to do battle with the forces of evil, as she is doing here, she reveals herself fully... and wields a sword of pure divine fire, ablaze with flame the entire length of the blade. This is how such a being makes ready for combat... and here, at one of the very portals to Heaven itself... she will drive forth whatever darkness comes nigh!"

In comparison, this black and white ink drawing was my earliest attempt to depict a Seraphim. As you can see it is similar to "Seraphim Descending" but a lot more basic. I also, in the drawing, made the Angel more human-like by not showing its' body covered in glowing eyes. Something I decided to go all-out with in "Seraphim Descending". The eyes are just something that work best in color.

This has given me such a warm feeling very cool Josh!!

I’ve started making my own sandwich buns/rolls. I also made 13 dozen homemade bread rolls for a local place that served a community Easter dinner.

There’s nothing like the smell of fresh bread. 😋

Awesome job!

Hi PP, welcome to DUP. I'm assuming the upper part of both uprights are fixed to the wall for stability (the orange extension lead suggests it but I can't see exactly). Best regards, Josh.

I've made up 2 different mixes, one with 3 oils and another with 6 oils, the 3 is my favourite, I call it Jipsie, I used Champa flower in it, which smells amazing. I don't have a name for the second, but it smells fresh, not sweet, or sickly.

It is I can't remember which ones I've used off the top of my head. My books where I write everything down and all of my oils are at my mums. Myself and my sister make them and soap, as we spend most of our time there.

Have to get yourself a little online cottage business there, lady. Everyone loves a wax melt 😊
