Once upon a time, someone told me that “Cooking is an art, Baking is a science“. Which probably explains pretty well about the way that I look at both sets of skills and crafts.
And it’s also a good indicator on just how well I’ve managed to work on both. Because that pretty much splits the line on those subjects I’ve always done well at and bad at–compared to the craft and my attempts to do either baking or cooking for offerings.

These are just…pure and kind of endearing. It’s absolutely amazing to see what artists in 1914 (before the War!) thought the future would look like. Just…interesting. It’s kind of like steampunk in a way–with how it’s alternative to what actually happened. And it certainly would be a type of situation like that, given how we’re progressed long past these types of looks. But still, it’s an interesting inspiration to see what people over 100 years ago thought our future would look like.
If you are ever interested in getting artwork done of a spirit, deity, entity or the like — I highly suggest you check out Felix Warren (here is his Etsy: ForScryingOutLoud where I purchased).
The new side image “Domovoi” is work by him. It’s gorgeous and absolutely brilliant. Not to mention, it really does capture a nice spirit and show such beautiful details. On top of that though, he was extremely friendly and kind in talking to him during the process. It’s great to have friendly conversation, and he was absolutely the height of professional.
I linked the photo also to his shop–so please do check it out. I’m beyond enthused and pleased with the work he did, and will absolutely recommend him for others who are interested in commissioning artwork.∗

This is a good source. I’m going to keep this so that I have some reference for some drawing. Matryoshka are beautiful little things, so I can think of some nice little decorations, or perhaps altar artwork that I could use this for.

These are really gorgeous. Also inspiring. Definitely worth looking at and admiring.

This is amazingly impressive. And such fun for the nerd in me.

Good art is impressive. And paper art is something I love…even though I have no talent for it. This artist though, she’s amazing.

I have a thing for pin-up style art. I love it quite a bit for the kind of vintage look, and the way that they can be extremely pretty. This is gorgeous…and Slavic themed. Which makes these perhaps a bit more interesting.

These are the first artistic portrayals of Slavic deities I ever saw. Truthfully, this is what helped to draw me into studying my heritage. I may not always see the gods or goddesses the same way as these portrayals, but they are what gave me inspiration to research and learn more.
