Friend of mine asked that I share this around. If you guys can help or spread the word, please do 🙂

The lady pictured here is a friend, and she most certainly deserves this chance to go to her first dig. Help her out!

It’s small business Saturday. So I’m going to whore myself here for a moment, even though I haven’t decided how much of my work stuff I want on here: 

I have an etsy shop, where I sell original paintings: http://www.etsy.com/shop/wicketicons/

And I sell prints over at:
http://www.redbubble.com/people/wicketicons/

Some animal paintings, a goodly number of images of Hekate, and a few other Gods. 

I also take commissions via my etsy and my facebook page:

I’m hosting a giveaway this weekend on the FB page. If you share, comment or like the Thanksgiving post, you’ll be entered in a drawing for a commissioned watercolor painting. 🙂

I would like to make a public service announcement on this piece of shit information floating around the internet. I’m NOT going to take pot shots at an artist’s personal palette but this is just misinformation to thousands of other people out there who may or may not know better.

Number one. IF YOU ARE PAINTING, YOU’RE NOT REFERENCING A DIGITAL SWATCH. So first of all, you need to know where paint comes from. I dont even know where to start with this. I mean seriously, the statement about not being able to make pure, strong colours with cadmiums is just so full of ignorance, I don’t even know where to start. 

If you need visual evidence, let’s take a look at this picture 

This picture was invented before CMYK ever came around, tbh. Too bad Klimt is dead or else he would attest to this just like EVERY OTHER TRADITIONAL PAINTER will. 

Mixing colours is not magic nor is it as easy as picking colours from a digital swatch. It takes practice to understand how certain colours react with one another, employ painting techniques such as not mixing white with every goddamn colour to lighten a hue. 

Let’s take another look at a somewhat LESS brightly paintedpiece.

The saturation is not nearly as bright but the chroma is pure. There are no muddy colours, nothing is brown where it was not meant to be. Because Kandinsky knows how to mix colours. It didn’t happen overnight nor was he born with that knowledge. It was years and years of practise and work.

Even Klee knew what was up. He was not a master artist by any means but he worked goddamn hard at it and look what he created.

Here’s another Klimt because we all love him so:

CMYK exists because it does not know how to replicate the natural pigments of paint that can reflect light. It’s a beautiful, beautiful fake at best. I love CMYK. I even want to get a tattoo that says CMYK. But it is by no means the one and only. 

So PLEASE. PLEASE EDUCATE YOURSELF AND CROSS REFERENCE YOUR COLOUR THEORY BEFORE YOU BUY INTO THIS GARBAGE. NEWTON KNEW WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT WHEN HE MADE THE COLOUR WHEEL GUYS.

PAINTERS SPEAK OUT FOR OUR BELOVED COLOUR WHEEL! REBLOG AND REPOST! Whoo!

************************

EDIT// Additionally, I re-read that ignorant infographic or whatever and have come to realize that the artist classifies pthalo blue/green and hansa yellow as CMYK. That is not CMYK guys. CMYK is used for digital prints because you can’t use paint. Duh. God, that information is so wrong, it wasn’t even worth making this post.

HOW do people not know this?

Respect to all Australian Indigenous peoples on this Invasion Day.

Terra Nullius was bullshit.

Check this awesome interactive map of Indigenous languages

For the uninitiated, this is a map of the estimated tribal roaming boundaries, or ‘countries’, of the incredible multitude of Aboriginal cultures existing in Australia before invasion.

31 Days of Witchcraft: 14

14. Patron God [If you have one. If not, list gods that you favor]


So, there’s Amun, my divined Father. The Hidden One, who in my life, tends toward his duck and frog manifestations. I get the Stormy aspects of Him a lot. 

Hermes and I are in the early fuzzy-figuring-it-all-out-stages. I bought him a pan pipe as an introduction (because he invented it. :p)  I know he’s hanging around, but not sure of more than that. 

Helios and I, we’ve had a long term relationship, in spite of my pasty white skin. :p I love napping in the sun… except I’m allergic. Literally. Still I ❤ Him. 

And I have a thing for Bes. Because He’s amazing and wondrous. 

And when I was younger and hung up on this idea that my Gods had to relate somehow with my ancestry, I developed a great relationship with An Dagda of the Irish Tuatha de Danaan. He’s fantastic. 🙂 

And then I have a thing for the Green Man, but can’t decide if He’s a God or a Nature Spirit. I know not everyone sees those as different, but I do.
