this is a millais.
i would never have guessed.
okay, maybe the red hair...
why did he paint all that cheesy crap
if he could paint like this?
okay, i'm too harsh on him.
i love his ophelia and blind girl and isabella and stuff...
but i find this to be so much better.
it might be just me.
to be honest, i don't really like the pillars,
but look at the embroidery!
and the blue-yellow contrast.
and the orange and red.
no kidding, my heart really skipped a beat
when i spotted this.
okay i'll stop.
i'm only posting this to let you in on a plan i got.
i plan to transform the way i see things.
i'd like to tranform it by drawing everyday.
just a little, not much.
of course it has to be after life, not doodling.
ten minutes at the least.
(suppose if you can transform your body
by working out ten minutes a day, than maybe
you can transform your seeing
by drawing ten minutes.)
starting (ummm) today (ummm).
okay, let's say i'll make this
a 30 day challenge.
(i posted this little ted speech some time ago
that i really loved, so now i'll give it a shot.)
i'm a bit scared of course, because i'm not
very good at keeping promises,
but now that you got my word,
maybe i'll be more able to stick to this.
i'll keep you posted.
you're welcome to play along,
if you want to.
