Hi there

My name is Emily and this is my dedicated space for documenting my journey with creative living. It is my hope, that I can inspire those of you who visit, read and look through this space to find the curiosity to follow your own inner voice, seek out and do the thing that makes you go “this is what life’s all about.”

Guanyin // Justice

Guanyin // Justice

Justice (Good judgement - laws must be obeyed but shouldn't be harsh) depicted by Guanyin, a beautiful, Chinese goddess of compassion. I’d been watching anime all day when painting this so that’s why she has a very anime-style/ feel!

I originally was going to paint her wearing white robes, as I’d read that she is often painted like this but I was really feeling the blues and then decided on an almost galaxy vibe. I completely mucked up her eyes so I added the blindfold as a cover up at first, but then added more detailing and liked the overall aesthetic of it. Also I felt the blindfold worked with the justice theme, even though in the Rider Waite deck justice is not blinded.
