Hey Lovelies, I am back. 
I am starting an African-inspired photo series. This photo series will feature photos of people with African-inspired pieces. This can range from the clothing to the bangles, necklaces, hairstyle, make-up or more. Basically, anything that brings in that vibe or touch of the vibrant, colourful and unique African prints, patterns or styles. 

This is the first gallery unit of the African-inspired photo series. Enjoy!

Hey guys. Hope you are having a great week.
Around this time last year a really great poet; Maya Angelou passed. In loving memory of Maya Angelou I decided to recite one of her poems titled; Phenomenal woman.
You can scroll down to listen to my recording of the poem.


Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. 
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size   
But when I start to tell them, 
They think I’m telling lies. 
I say, 
It’s in the reach of my arms, 
The span of my hips,   
The stride of my step,   
The curl of my lips.   
I’m a woman 
Phenomenal woman,   
That’s me. 

I walk into a room 
Just as cool as you please,   
And to a man, 
The fellows stand or 
Fall down on their knees.   
Then they swarm around me, 
A hive of honey bees.   
I say, 
It’s the fire in my eyes,   
And the flash of my teeth,   
The swing in my waist,   
And the joy in my feet.   
I’m a woman 

Phenomenal woman, 
That’s me. 

Men themselves have wondered   
What they see in me. 
They try so much 
But they can’t touch 
My inner mystery. 
When I try to show them,   
They say they still can’t see.   
I say, 
It’s in the arch of my back,   
The sun of my smile, 
The ride of my breasts, 
The grace of my style. 
I’m a woman 
Phenomenal woman, 
That’s me. 

Now you understand 
Just why my head’s not bowed.   
I don’t shout or jump about 
Or have to talk real loud.   
When you see me passing, 
It ought to make you proud. 
I say, 
It’s in the click of my heels,   
The bend of my hair,   
the palm of my hand,   
The need for my care.   
’Cause I’m a woman 
Phenomenal woman, 
That’s me.

Hey guys. Happy New Month! How are you doing? Hope you are having a good week.
Here is an art post. Yay! Enjoy!

I got some items in the kitchen and put them together. I took a photo of these items and made a drawing of the photo.
I made certain adjustments with the size of some of the objects and the background.
Here is the photo of the items together.

I started the drawing...

Kept drawing...

Started shading...

More shading...

Even more shading...

Any finally!

And there you have it! My very first combination still life drawing. Hope you liked it. While drawing I took several photos on intervals. I used the photos to make a very short video (15seconds) showing the progression in the drawing. You can go over here to watch the video;
I am having my first giveaway.
You can check out the giveaway video in the 'Giveaway' section at the top of the page.
In case you are wondering I will have a poetry post next.

Thanks for viewing. Hope you liked it. Feel free to leave comments and suggestions. Have a lovely week.

Hi guys. How has the new year been so far. Hope it has been good. Here is another poem. It is quite short. 

I had on a long white gown
It was the perfect cinch waist dress
And it was well adorned with
Red diamonds
Okay, fine!
Glittering diamond-like stones
He had on a well tailored white suit
With a sharp black bow tie
We sat at the middle part of 
The long royal hall close to the window
And boy I tell you
The scenery was exquisite
We ate similar meals
We both drank red wine
I didn't hear everything he said
But the words I heard
Kept me fascinated
At the end of the 'noble' dinner event
As people walked around
Exchanging pleasantries
And nodding their heads
Countless times
I held his strong hands and 
Looked into his bright blue eyes
And I said to my beloved
It was a great pleasure 
Spending time with you
He paused staring at me
Mmnnn. .. A thousand and one 
Butterflies danced in my stomach
Then turning to his right he said; 
"What? Get this stalker out of here!"

Hope you liked it. Enjoy the rest of your day.
