There Is by JenniferWeiler There Is by JenniferWeiler
I wanted to give a BIG THANK YOU to all of my watchers, friends, fellow stalkers (lol I know who you are ;D ) and my family and most importantly my dad, for encouraging me when I needed a good kick in the ass and for being there for me when things got crazy. Dad is the one that gave me the opportunity to follow my passion and build a career from it which is the greatest thing I could have asked for. This piece is inspired by all of the people that have meant so much to me in my life because without each and every one of you and my experiences with you, I would not be who I am today. "There is" a future, hope, a family, a friend, a reason for everyone and I finally found mine with all of my encouragement. I just wanted to say, "thank you."

The girl in the piece I guess you could call her druid-like. She walks with the animals in both the physical and spiritual. Why is she traveling? Because as cliche as it is, life is a journey; our own journey; our own story. We are all beautiful in our own way and through the stories we tell and weave together with others we craft tales to pass on to future generations. Mine started rather gloomy as I'm sure many of us have experienced. But I found a reason to hold on and to continue pursuing my own path. Along the way, I've met many a good person as well as an equal amount of people I hope to never run into again and this includes at the grocery store. But it's because of all of those experiences (both good and bad) that I'm still here today encouraging and enjoying life with others. My journey is not over as her's is just beginning. And I realize some of you may think I'm just rambling but I honestly broke down into tears as I neared the completion of the sketch for this piece. There was a time period in my life where I took the care of others for me for granted and I'm seeing my brother do that now. I will never get to thank those people for all the long hours they sat with me while I was on the path of self-destruction and I hope that perhaps they saw that I did carry a great respect for them despite my inherent drive to push their assistance away. So for all of you that watch me, converse with me, stalk me quietly, etc, I wish the best for all of you and thank you. No matter how small your comment to me may have been, no matter how insignificant you think you may be in my life, you've all meant something to me and I will continue to craft my story to share with you as I hope you all will continue to pursue your own stories to share with my own.



I listened to the Skyrim soundtrack the entire time I worked on this to finish it up the past few days haha! I have to say, that beastly 4 disc set is one of the most inspirational things I've gotten my hands on. I started the line work for this piece back March of 2011 and I'm glad to finally have it finished.

Aww haha thank you!! I used a metallic paint for many of the ornaments so they actually reflect light. Unfortunately, photos don't show that very well haha! Thanks again! (:

exploring an enchanted forests, with a mysterious horse that illuminates great power. the woman seems to be entrance by the mystical forest and the horses beauty and greatness. expression and symbol of freedom in this "magical exploration". an appetite for personal drive towards a never-ending passion for her horse. a perfect epitome of artemis the greek goddess, a feature of her freedom of expression, her appetite for life, and the energy of life itself. i love this. good job and i hope you do greater works

Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment, I appreciate your taking the time to reflect on the piece and share what you felt and saw. Artemis is one of the goddesses I reflect on quite often with my work so it's neat that you caught onto that. (:

Thanks again!

So gorgeous. Makes me want to continue my own dream to become a writer, something I've dreamed about since I was twelve years old. A dream that has been with me since 2000. Here I am, almost thirteen years later finally getting my story up and characters made. Reading what you put down for the details under your gorgeous image, it helped me out. Definitely gives me more energy to write and finish the first of four books I have planned somewhat. Thank you for not only this image, but for telling a bit of your story and inspiring me to continue with my dream, like you have with yours.
