Here's my poem:

Freesia and Flawless

Paint me thick with vibrancy
smooth and long in lily white.
Shape soft broken capillaries,
fix azure and ocean in my eyes
requisite sunbeams, gold or flaxen,
falling in stillness on breathless breast.
Burnish my blush and allocate alabaster
milk and honey shadowed by sweeping
sable lashes, freesian. Flawless. 
Strip me of starkness, sin and sense.
Rape me of peaches and passions
hazel and heathers, healing and heat.
Substitute velvets and veneers, chaste and
cherubim over brazen and bronze.




CHALLENGE: Create a piece of art inspired by this poem by OCTOBER 15TH.

All entries appropriate for FB will be posted in an album on my page there (with a link back): Arcanum Poetic

Winner gets a 12 month subscription from me.  If I really like your piece we may also have a talk when I get around to publishing. Until then - great exposure for your art and mine!

RULES: One submission per entrant & keep it PG - evocative is great, but I want to be able to share your art!
          Bonus points if it's using JUST "Angela" stock NOT "Couples" stock. But you do what ya gotta do.


Good luck!

We provide our stock so that deviants of all skill levels have something with which to create all styles of art.  But, as you all know, art can be a very personal thing, so while tacostock loves all art made with our stock, Aaron and Angela have some personal favorites of their own.   

So, in case you're curious, here are some of our personal favorites:
