— Virginia Woolf, Orlando (via observando)A woman knows very well that, though a wit sends her his poems, praises her judgment, solicits her criticism, and drinks her tea, this by no means signifies that he respects her opinions, admires her understanding, or will refuse, though the rapier is denied him, to run through the body with his pen.

Dear Jacque,

I have finally completed you. Not going to lie but there were many times I wanted to throw you against the wall(lovingly of course), mess up your face on purpose, and just plainly abandon you. But every painting picks up it’s pace somehow, and you are no exception to that. I have learned a lot more about portraiture in the process of painting you. You mean a lot to me(kind of, not really). I have graced you with the cheekbones to woo all sorts of people (men and women alike). But I do regret to inform you that after I take a photo of you to post, no one really seems to care about the actual piece. After you dry, I hope you have a great life collecting dust underneath my bed. ❤️💙💚💛💜


P.S.Again, took process photos with IPhone so expect some change in lighting and quality
