Beautiful work I admire


Beautiful works I'd love to hang on my walls! :heart:




At first glance, you don't know if I'm happy
or sad. If I'm accident prone or graceful.

Perhaps I continuously thirst for wild, new
adventures, or perhaps not. Dare I say

I'm not so easy to read like vibrant ads
in magazines. Such assumptions remain futile.

You try with a watered-down perspective, that
like paper arrows miss their mark. I'm a painter

or am I a writer. Do I make my own choices or
don't I. Do I have a tender heart or a frozen one.

Pardon me for not being so judgmental, for not
relying on outward appearance to engrave such

dark or pure thoughts into my mind or onto my
heart, letting it instead be the starting point to you.
First Impressions
This poem was created for a class for an imitation poem assignment. To which, this poem was inspired by David Hernandez's "Self-Portrait With Back Turned"… as it was something that really resonated with me. I'm not sure how well I did with this, but it certainly turned out better than I thought it would. If you have any suggestions for improvement, I'm more than happy to hear them! I'm still rather rusty from being out of writing for so long, so whatever I can do to learn and improve is something I would like :)

So in all honesty, I wasn't entirely sure how to imitate David Hernandez's poem. I decided to start with his first line and how it starts out "At this angle,..." and what came to mind was "At first glance,..." to which the title of "First Impressions" came to mind. So this poem is more or less how a lot of people judge others based on their appearances before really getting to know them, and yet also about how there are those of us who are not like that as I've come to learn!

Hopefully I chose the right category.. XD I'm not entirely sure! :ashamed:

Busy, busy busy

So.. I'm not sure how many of you are still active watchers, but those of you that are have probably noticed my attempts to be active only to disappear again. I really, really want to be more active in this community but it is ridiculous how busy I've been. The Spring semester was busy since I was taking 15 credits and working 17 hours a week. Once the semester ended I thought I would have more free time, but work decided they wanted me to work more and I picked up a project or two as well so I am still busy even during the summer. Le sigh. I currently work 40 hours a week and have need to work on an illustration for a local woman's short story (I previously needed to paint a toy box, which I thankfully completed!)

I haven't had the chance to really do much, and when I do have time I either end up wasting it due to surfing the web (YouTube is especially terrible) or I feel like gaming. There's just so much to do, and not enough time! D: I'm hoping to be more active, but seeing as I'm busy during the summer (and I'll be busy again once the semester starts, 15 credits with 18 hours of work + work study) I don't know if that'll happen ;-;

I'll try to update this every now and again, but my apologies if you don't see or hear from me right away! Thank you so much to my new watchers, both for the watch, the favorites, and your lovely comments :) I really appreciate it and love to hear and see what you have to say! While I cannot guarantee how often I'll be around, I hope to see you all more often!

Much of what I do is photography, but I still enjoy my drawing so I try to do that as well :) I've done some modeling as well but I think I'd rather be the photographer. A lot of people say that the model should be the one with the ideas and poses for an image, but I don't agree with that. The photographer is the one who can see the potential of the image, not the model. I'm of course not saying that the model doesn't do much. Many do have great ideas that help out photographers that are unable to see the potential photos. As you may also notice, much of my photography is landscapes, although I do enjoy taking candid shots :) I don't use a fancy camera, just an Olympus FE-20 but I do my best to capture the beauty I see!

I enjoy a multitude of things ranging from writing to video games, to traveling and experiencing new things. I also adore pretty things. It can be shiny, pretty, colorful, you name it; I'll like it. Due to the amount of things I love to do, want to do, and need to do, actually presenting results has been lacking. However, I intend to change that :) You can't get better if you don't practice!
I'm quite friendly really so if you have any questions, comments, or anything of the sort you can feel free to message me or leave a comment :)

On an additional note. Most cases, I will make my images available as Print as well. Not sure how often Prints are purchased on here, but if anyone would like something specific made available as print or in a certain way, please do not hesitate to ask :)

Last Note: I do have a Facebook account which is here:… (If you plan on sending me a friend request, please apply a note so I know who you are!)

:bulletpurple: My FB page for my work is here:… Which you can feel free to be a fan of if you'd like! :aww:
:bulletpurple: Here is my Modeling FB Page if you'd like to 'like' it! :heart:…. Otherwise, my modeling profile is here although I haven't done any in quite some time
:bulletpurple: I also have a Redbubble account here:…
:bulletpurple: I also have a Cafe Press account here:… (This one is still in the works though!)
:bulletpurple: I have a Zazzle account here:
:bulletpurple: I now have a twitter! You can follow me here:!/stephaniewisdom

If you see my images or work anywhere else though, it likely isn't me. If you do see this, please notify me :)
Note: I don't really use the Zazzle, CafePress, or RedBubble much lately. Not sure if I intend to or not in the future.

Just a note, this Bio is very old and not something I entirely agree with these days! I'll get around to updating it.. eventually :lol:
