Flowers of Innocence by RoxaneLys Flowers of Innocence by RoxaneLys
Mixed media (Charcoal pencils, acrylic ink, watercolour) on Moleskine Book

This portrait is a reflection about identity. 
I'm focusing myself on childhood because it's an ephemeral time that builds us, like flowers that grow and fade away with seasons... but the memories and traces stay with us forever (colours like the vivid colours of flowers, smells liks the unforgettable smell of some flowers, happiness, sadness...) and make us what we are as adults. Hair that is always there with us, is a symbol of the present time, adulthood... and therefore makes the link between past (flowers, childood) and present.

I can't explain more because it's linked to my own childhood ;)

EDIT:
THANKS A MILLION to the DA staff and :deshrubber: for the Daily Deviation! It's been a real honor to receive this! I've tried this new style without really thinking about it. I never thought people would like it so much! So thanks a bunch to the DA staff and all the sweet members who likes my work and support me ! :)

I'd favorite this, but it would remind me to much of my past...
And that's not what I want to remember.

It's excellent.

aw why is that?
don't worry you don't need to reply if you don't feel ok.
I made this drawing based on my childhood. I had a strange childhood, mixed with horrible and magnificent memories. it's always been hard for me to talk about it, but now i can express it through my drawings and it feels wonderful. But it's a long and difficult process.

(You'll need "some time" to digest this if you so desire)

I fell in what I thought was "love" about 15 years ago.
It most likely was only infatuation, and not mutual, but I may never know.
She was a Roman Catholic Filipino and I am of the Christian faith.

It's almost like a real life Romeo/Juliet story...   except I was never honest with my feelings
toward her because I didn't want to compromise our platonic friendship.

I screwed things up one day. Didn't know what I had done....   but it was all in "His" plan.

I went through a large predicament of un-oddly proportions over a period of roughly two years. (Because God in Heaven is against all odds) and fell from it all. In a rant of "power" that was not my right to have, yet I took anyway. The govern of the "world" doesn't understand. Because the world doesn't weigh instances of the scales by the "heart". Only by appearances of guilt. I can't compromise my freedom for the sake of my children, yet....   I only wish she would understand. -_-

a year later...   here "I" am.   ;)   Rededicated and yet still finding a piece of myself every day.

.... and still struggling to make ends meet amazingly...   -_-

Gosh you've been through so many things. 
I'm not sure I understand all of your story. But i'm very moved. You can send me a note if you want to talk more about it

It's not necessary for you to completely understand.
At this point in time I have let go of the "regrets" I once had and count it all Joy and simply a learning experience to use for His glory. ;) I thought I knew what "love" is. But I'm getting closer to understanding it now because of everything that has happened.

"All things" yes? ;)

That is such a brilliant way to see life.
Live the suffering behind and use your pains to live a better life. 
I've suffered a lot in the past too and I've recently learned this. It has changed my life. Now I'm trying to be a better person, to live happilly and make people surrounding me happy :) Art and Religion helps a lot :)

Hah...   "religion"  yeah...   "gimme some a that old time religion" ^_^

..................................................................

As the Father loved His one and only Son, to be Given Up to His "bride", should she accept.

how much more are "you" worth to any "religion"?

"I am the way, the truth and the life, no "man" comes to the Father but by Me."

 - Jesus


And those who choose to accept "Him" and him alone and be covered by His Blood Sacrifice
are those that will be saved. Though....   The Holy Fruit  can only be accepted by living a life according to those standards.

It's a shame she doesn't understand what "forgiveness" is and that she has to give it to receive it. And it even more of a shame that I can't tell her. She has to find out on her own.

You know everyone has its own path. Small things leads us to where we are destined to go, but it's a complicated journey... we must be open and pay attention to signs... and no one can do it for us. All you can do is be patient for other people and not judge them.
I'm having a hard time to understand everything you say because I didn't read all the holy texts. Religion came to me in a strange way... things happenned...maybe  you could call them miracles... but it happenned. I'm in a strange position, but I follow my heart and those signs. I've read some texts and it's like I've followed them without knowing them... only by instinct. So I mainly follow my heart and what those signs tell me.
