She Walks in Beauty
— Lord Byran
She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express,
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.
And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!
It’s my first time to try Fluid Painting, I mixed Prussian Blue, Turquoise, Permanent Blut Light, Ultramarine, Acid Blue, white, and fluid medium. I was so excited to see how beautiful they were on the canvas, like the ocean and sky with different blues.
However, when it get dried, I was a bit disappointed at the sediments of some paints, I didn’t mix them well 😦 I still like it, and drew the simple black line of Persian Princess instead of painting more colors, just let the Persian Princess be part of the tender light.
Another famous poem from Byron, which I repeated, again and again, is “when we two parted”,
“If I should see thee, after long years, how should I greet thee? With silence and tears. “
The day when I said goodbye to the person who I loved, I couldn’t stop crying, the person who you talked with every day and wanted to share everything with, you want to share every painting that you have saw and painted, share every poem that you have read, share every music that you have listened, share every country that you have been to, share every moment in your life, becomes a person who you won’t talk with anymore, I don’t know if you’d love to listen or not, I don’t know if I should share or not, and you just keep silent, don’t know what to say. Actually, how I wish to share with you this poem, this painting, this song, and this moment. At this moment, I miss you so much, I miss the old time so much.
