CUSTOM PET--&--STUFFIE PORTRAITS--WHY IT'S IMPORTANT--WHY I DO WHAT I DO WHEN I'M NOT ON MY BLOG




I REALLY WANTED TO PLAY AROUND WITH SOME PICS TONIGHT--& SHOW A LITTLE BIT OF WHAT I DO, WHEN I'M NOT ON MY BLOG.

IF YOU'VE BREEZED THROUGH MY BLOG, BY NOW, YOU'VE SEEN I DO/WRITE A LOT WITH/FOR ANIPALS, SPECIAL NEEDS, LGBTI, RECOVERY, MENTAL HEALTH, & FOLKS & ANIMALS--WHO DON'T GET A FAIR VOICE TO BE HEARD. 

ONE THING I REALLY DIG--IS CREATING CUSTOM PET PORTRAITS.
THEY ALLOW ME TO ENTER SOMEONE'S WORLD--& COMMUNE WITH WHO THEY ARE FOR A LITTLE WHILE--& SHARE THAT WITH THEIR FAMILIES.

THE TOP--THE FUR DIVAS--WAS THE FIRST REALLY--& SHE ENCOURAGED ME TO SHARE THIS WITH OTHER FOLKS & THEIR FUR BABIES.

SHE'S HIRED ME FOR A TOTAL OF 3 COMMISSIONED(3RD ONE I'LL POST SOON)PORTRAITS NOW--I'M BLESSED & HONORED MORE THAN I CAN TELL YOU.

EACH ONE IS IMPORTANT & SPECIAL--JUST LIKE THESE FUR KIDS.

SO THINKING OF THAT--I STARTED LISTING PICS OF "FANTASY" ANIMALS/STUFFIES(PLUSHIES/LOVIES) TOO, ON ETSY--BECAUSE FOR SOME FOLKS--A STUFFED ANIMAL **IS** LIKE THEIR KID.

TO KNOW SOMEONE WHO DOES PORTRAITS UNDERSTANDS THIS--WELL, IT JUST SEEMS IMPORTANT TO ME--THAT THESE STUFFIE PARENTS HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE SOMETHING SPECIAL LIKE THIS TOO.

SO--CHECK OUT THE SAMPLES/EXAMPLES(SEVERAL MORE LISTED)--SEE HOW PRECIOUS THESE GUYS ARE--& WHO KNOWS--MAYBE I'LL BE DOING A PORTRAIT FOR YOU TOO. 

"A DAY IN THE LIFE..." OF A PHOTO SHOOT BACKDROP/SHRINE-- #TheDoors #Lig...

A QUICK LOOK AT WHERE WE TAKE MANY OF OUR PHOTOS--WE HAVE THIS IS UP PERMANENTLY--IT SITS IN THE ARCH WAY BETWEEN THE DINING ROOM/KITCHEN. IT'S ACTUALLY QUITE SMALL, BUT FITS NICELY. IT'S COMFORTING TO WALK BY EACH TIME WE PASS THROUGH--& KNOWING WE SHARE IT WITH YOU--MAKES IT EVEN MORE SPECIAL.

See Me--AZ Rains Series

CONSTANT 
BLARING OF ROSES
PETALS 
OUTSIDE MY 
BALCONY CURTAINS.

THIS IS HOW
I SEE YOU.

THE GENTLE 
RUSH
OF DAYLIGHT
THRU 
MY DOOR.

I HEAR
THE SILENCE
IN THE HALLS
I SEE YOU.

IN MY MINDS
EYE
YOU'RE ALREADY
HERE
TOUCHING MY
FACE.

I KNOW 
THAT
LATER TONIGHT
YOU'LL
BE HERE WITH 
ME.

YOUR HANDS
UPON 
ME
YOUR SILENT CRUSH
AGAINST 
MY
SKIN
YOUR BREATH
I CRAVE
IN MY
LUNGS.

THIS IS HOW
YOU 
SEE 
ME.



In Your Eyes--Eternal Light Series

DISTANT THUNDER
RAGES IN MY HEAD
THE THOUGHTS 
YOU
SILENTLY 
MARCH ON.

THE STORMS
IN MY BRAIN
SNEAK THRU
THE NIGHT
CRAWLING THEIR WAY
BACK 
TO 
YOU.

IT'S AS IF
YOU DON'T EXIST
IF I DON'T THINK
OF
YOU
WATCHING ME
SILENT.

WHY DO 
YOU
FOLLOW ME 
IN MY DREAMS
A WATCHER
YOU'LL 
ALWAYS 
BE.

COME TO ME
IN THIS 
LIGHT
OF SHADE
IN THIS
PLACE WHERE
YOU SAID
YOU WOULD
ALWAYS BE.

NO
YOU SAY
COME BACK TO ME
WHERE 
YOU ALREADY 
LIVE
IN THE DARKER
LIGHT
WHERE THE 
SHADES 
OF YOU 
&
I
GLOW.

FOR IN CANDLES
DIM 
LIGHT
YOU CAN SEE
THE SHADOWS 
IN MY EYES
SEE WHERE 
I HAVE 
ALWAYS
LIVED.

IN YOUR EYES
IN YOUR
SOUL
IS WHERE 
I ALREADY
AM.

Adam Lamburt - Marry The Night (Music Video Glee)--MY NEW GLAM ROCK GOD--WHAT I LISTEN TO WHEN I'M NOT ON MY BLOG

"A DAY IN THE LIFE..."--DAVID BOWIE/ZIGGY STARDUST--RELI ARTS REMEMBERS....--How I do When I'm Not On My Blog

Think Of You--Eternal Light Series

CANDLE LIGHTS
REFLECT 
IN YOUR EYES 
BUT HOW CAN THAT BE
WITH THIS RAIN
SURROUNDS ME.

STORMS FILTER 
THROUGH
SOUNDS
OF 
YOU
ECHO IN MY EARS
AND ALL I CAN SEE
IS QUIET 
IN FRONT 
OF ME.

QUESTIONS
ALWAYS
IN THE AIR
SILENCE
IS STILL
CHAOS
IS RUMBLING THROUGH
MY CHEST
STILL
ALL I CAN 
FEEL IS YOU.

THE ANSWERS
ARE NEVER HERE
YOU TELL 
ME
THEY ONLY APPEAR
WHEN WE LEAST 
EXPECT THEM
WITH THE 
QUIET 
SUBSIDES
WHEN THE STORMS
ARE NO MORE.

THAT'S WHEN 
I THINK
OF 
YOU.

If Not For You--Eternal Light Series

THE SUN 
AND 
MOON 
COMBINE.
MAKING ONE YOU 
SEE.

FOR THE LIGHT 
OF THE MOON
REFLECTS 
IN ME.

YOU LOOK UPON
MY GAZE
AND THINK YOU SEE.

OH
BUT YOU DON'T
KNOW
THE COLORS
IN MY EYES
THAT IF NOT 
FOR YOU
WOULD NOT BE.

Only Me--Poets/Writers/Artists/Musicians

POETRY 
IN MY EYES
THIS IS HOW
I SEE.

THE COLORS
MIX 
SO DELICATELY.

I DRINK THEM
ALL IN YOU SEE.

BECAUSE 
I WOULD DROWN
WITHOUT THEM
WITH ONLY
ME.

Only You--AZ Rains

IT'S FUNNY
HOW I VISIT YOU
IN THE RAIN
OR 
IS IT ONLY
THE RAIN IN MY 
MIND.

I SEE YOU THERE
STANDING IN FRONT OF
ME.
AND I SEE ONLY 
THE SUN 
FROM A DISTANCE
BECAUSE WITH YOU 
HERE
I FEEL ONLY THE SHADOWS
UPON ME.

SOMEONE ONCE SAID
WHY DO YOU CRAVE 
THE RAIN
WHEN THE SUNLIGHT
SHINES SO BRIGHT.
AND I ANSWERED 
THAT I SEE BETTER IN THE RAIN
BECAUSE I CAN SEE ONLY YOU.
