Busy busy~

oh jeez luis another week without any work for my little hole in the blogland~ i have been working very hard on my day job since the deadline is tight, and i am taking a vacation soon. My dear folks are coming into town as well so i think i won't have much to show for a while~ *___*
However i did decide to dust this place up a bit and make it more homely~ the music is my current favorite~ if i had time the header should really be circus themed, as you can tell~ and i should totally renamed this blog" Shelly's Demonic Circus"~! ^____^

Look out for the killer mime loose on the camp ground,

Pan's tales~

WIP of a personal piece:

it's interesting to myself how i always pick a song to listen to whenever i am painting. it's something close to the mood of the piece, something that's musically intone with the world i have in mind for the painting. For "Charge" it was the soundtrack of "The Fountain", for "Greatest Discovery" it was "Je Crois Ententre"(you can listen to it here:, for "Escape" it was "Dummy". But this new piece was actually inspired by a story i read, Tom Robbin's "Jitterbug Perfume". It's a great book about two lovers turn immortals that are friends of the goat god Pan, about their journey through the ages to witness the dwindle of Pan and therefore, love and immortality. So this piece was a more literary translation, which i had a bit of problem conceptualizing.
i gave my itune a look over and finally, found something that's only too appropriate,"Pan's labyrinth"! so i happily proceed to paint this sucker...

i am working with this funny Argentinian Luis Crane, and he calls the paintings he like "have balls!" i am thinking he won't like this piece too much. i would have to agree since i am not feeling the two characters at all right now. oh well~ i shall worry about it tomorrow night~ give me some feedback if you can. Thanks in advance fellow bloggers!

safe travel beyond gnarly seas,
