Daily Deviation Suggestion Guidelines


Photobucket



I'm a Traditonal Art Community Volunteer

  • I only take traditional art suggestions, I cannot feature anything else (like scraps).

  • Make sure that the deviant hasn't already received a Daily Deviation within the past 6 months.
    FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?

  • Send your suggestions to only one Community Volunteer.

  • You can read my detailed guidelines here.
How to suggest

Just hit the "Note" button on my profile page and add the subject: DD Suggestion. Include the thumb code along with the reason why you think the deviant deserves a Daily Deviation.


I may not reply to all suggestions but I do read, consider and appreciate every suggestion.

Welcome to My Page!





Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art

I am an artist from Finland who loves drawing, nature, cute, pretty and creepy things, colors, reading books and watching good stories from TV and seeing creativity and imagination. I do mostly traditional artworks with watercolors, markers and colored pencils, but I also try to learn secrets of digital art.

Literature



:iconsmadams:

With entry:
The Little Time TravellerIt all began with a cardboard box; a simple cardboard box. There was nothing special about this brown box with its collection of colorful lines swirling in no particular direction across the sides; a canvas for a little boy’s marker collection. Each line told a story of excitement and adventure; a thrill that a little boy and his friend shared together.
In his arms, the little boy held Teddy, his protector from the evils of their travels. Lively blue eyes – full of a child’s wonder – glanced at his fuzzy friend, a big grin plastered on the young boy’s face. The things they had seen on their journeys defied everything the world had taught them to believe; but then again, they were too young to believe much of what the world had to say. They wanted to explore it for themselves.
“That outta do it,” he said with a nod of his head.
Gathering himself up, he set Teddy down in a chair and made his way to his closet. Sifting through the shirts and trous

:
The Tiny PearlsShe stood before the full length mirror, admiring the reflection of the woman about to present herself to the world as someone who had seen it all. Her trembling hands fumbled with the string of tiny white pearls, each a reminder of the obstacles that had been overcome. They were a collection of memories trapped for her sanity; protection for a fragile and battered mind. It was a necklace that represented a heart stronger than the pain it had endured. Those small raw pearls gave the world a soul that smiled because life was an adventure worth experiencing; that anyone can rise from the ashes liberated and renewed from the torment of another's choices.
Eyes of wisdom beyond their years reflected the strength of the woman standing tall in the mirror. There was no perfection in what was revealed, but there was an acceptance for who she had been, who she was, and who she will be with the passing of time. A knowing smile tugged at the lips of an innocence long lost, but there was not a drop
Cheap VodkaAaron was gulping down his anger with cheap vodka, hiding from the world to drown in his self-induced sorrows. It was a routine, at times – fighting then drinking, drinking then fighting. It was as if he wanted it to happen. Today was no different, and the tears that ran down my face were a testament to how the day had gone. I had been beaten down by resentment; disgraced for having an opinion. I knew, at this moment, he hated me. And yet, I loved him. Don’t ask me how or why, but I did, and I wanted to marry him for some god-forsaken reason.
We had been together for over two years, and I felt it was time to make that commitment. The night I brought it up, he began ranting at me again. He asked me "what difference would it make for us" and "why should we pay for something that wouldn't affect the nature of our relationship?" I couldn’t tell him, I didn’t want to tell him. I wanted to be myself again; not living in worry about losing him to someone else because I
Crumpled PagesShe sought refuge on a lone rock, watching small waves lap against the edges. It had been a beautiful day; one of new experiences and old acquaintances. As the sun was turning down its sheets and drifting below the horizon, shadows stretched from the boulders, wading in the water, with exhaustion from the day’s excitement. Ignoring the sun’s impending slumber, she remained motionless, consumed by troubling emotions.
It was her book; words she had penned to paper from her life experiences. The words had brought tears of joy and the sense of accomplishment, but the feelings have long since faded. Replaced with the confusion and disappointment, she stared at the pages with a pained disgust. The words were jumbled; having lost the passion that had given them existence. The letters she saw, the words she read, were not her own. They were foreign from beginning to end, no longer an expression of her, but of another’s ideas. Her thoughts had been twisted into something unrec



The Distinction



:iconmagicaljoey:

With entry:
I Can, I Will, I Have Done“You can’t.”
That’s how it started. A boy, a girl and the words, “You can’t”.
With her mother having died from pneumonia, only six months earlier, Suzie arrived at her 21st birthday realising little else had changed in her life. Her sole purpose was now to keep the house in order, an ordeal which started before dawn and ended way after her father and brother had gone to bed. There was bread to bake, grocery shopping to do, cleaning, cooking; the list was endless and she collapsed into bed at night for a fitful few hours sleep grabbed between her loads of work.
“Why was I born different ma?” She spoke to her mother as if she was there listening. “Why was I born like you, with the female body parts? All I want is to be like Phillip – he can run about, he can vote for change, a change that doesn’t affect me so much as him and father.” A small tear trickled down her cheek. “I’m clever too ma, smarter

“Oh dear, what's the matter,”
said the Hare to the Hatter
while the Doormouse soundlessly snored.
“What just can't compare,”
said Hatter to Hare,
“is the fact that I'm hungry and bored.”
“Twinkle, twinkle,” was heard
as the sleepy Mouse stirred,
“We're British, by jove, we like tea!”
So the Hare plated up
while Hatter poured cups
and they both had a cupcake or three.
At the EndAt the End
12-2-15
At the end of the rainbow, it’s said, there is gold
And you can attain it if you’re both brave and bold.
I beg to differ, I’m sorry, it’s true
But what’s at the end of your rainbow depends solely on you.
For some it’s a room filled with electronic do-dads,
For others a place where they can go creatively mad.
But for me, it’s quite simple, wherever I roam;
At the end of my rainbow is the place I call home.
For now it’s a room with two desks and a shelf,
Full of books and photos of dead baby and self.
A PC, a printer and things I must do,
A calendar, lights and some Winnie the Pooh.
Maybe one day my books’ll have some space to roam
And I'll finally have a library of my very own.
And one day, in the future, I’ll have a man and a marriage
And photos of children instead of a miscarriage.
LovewordsLovewords
25-1-15
I whisper lovewords against your ears,
Lustwords against your lips,
Warmthwords against your eyes and
Starwords against your nose.
You encapsulate me, ensnare me, ensconce me.
Whisper back to me
Your answer
Filled with lovewords, lustwords,
Warmthwords, starwords,
Luscious wonderwords
And a simple yes.
You insulate me, isolate me, illustrate me.
Come let us be full of togetherwords
And hold hands with entwinedfingerwords;
Sign language all understand.
Let the lovewords scatter galaxies
Inside hearts warm from love’s oven.




Congratulations to the winners!

Thank you for the :+fav: of my Reflections painting. That was the third painting I ever completed and you can tell by looking at it that I was not a trained watercolour artist at all (I just made up the rules as I went along). It was the first painting I ever sold though, and I am sure in 1986 when I painted it I had no clue one day I would be thanking anyone for adding it to their gallery of favourites. :-)
