UmberEvery tree in fall is like a paintbrush,PackRatTheArtist
Loaded with bright, yellow paint.
They cast their crimson shadows on the river,
Making the waters blush.
Their fragile leaves blown about
Precariously on the tips of their fingers.
Floating across the wind, frozen in time.
Like little scraps of crinkled canvas.
Like masterpieces cast carelessly in the air.
That precious skim of green on the edges of the bristles
Betrays their desperate cling to life.
They gaze up to the mountains
At the ever-living pines,
Who will never get to taste death.
And a death so beautiful
So as to paint the valleys
With their passionate colors.
To fill the air with their burnt scents.
To display themselves vividly and boldly
Against the cloudy grey sky,
In a violent opposition to winter.
Would it be pretentious of me
To say that I feel like the fall?
To feel, with all the color and blessings,
Cold and fragile?
Would it be too audacious of me,
To say that in the summer of my youth,
I feel old?
That I could rain and storm
Went to Jo Ann’s today. Picked up a few things, but not everything that I needed. Picked up some;
-White paint (Liquitex. Going to see how this works. I already had some deep purple which I plan to use as my secondary color.)
-Brushes (Cheap. Variety.)
-Razor Knife (X-acto brand. Snap-off blade design.)
I also ordered some stuff off Amazon, so hopefully that stuff comes in on time. I still have to get Plastidip this weekend. I might pick up a few other things while I’m out, depending on what has already come in from Amazon. Just to be safe. Cuz it would suck to not be able to wear the armor after working so hard on it, ya know?
Things I ordered from Amazon:
-10 yards of 1-inch Black Nylon fabric w/ 30 Buckles (This is the stuff that I need to come through on time.)
-2.5 yards of Black Elastic band (1 inch wide)
-Fingerless Tactical Gloves (Black)-Naruto Vol.1 (It was important that I buy this. Cuz free shipping…..Also, I don’t own any Manga. Loved this show as a kid….Shuddit.)
Just an awkward, nerdy-ish, dorky dude who rarely uploads any art here. Yeah, sorry about that.|
Oh, you wanted to know about what I do with my life? What is a "Life?" Sorry, don't even know what that is. Lololololol
