Planner…Monday, whoops.

It took me until Tuesday of last week to even get my planner in order – it was that kind of messed up week.  But I did manage to pretty it up eventually.

This week I went with a single artist, the ever-popular John William Waterhouse.  I’m guessing if you’re a girl-type person of a mystical bent you probably had at least one Waterhouse hanging in your dorm room.  

Waterhouse is usually associated with the Pre-Raphaelites but in fact he painted a number of years later, inspired both by the PreRaphaelite brotherhood and by Greco-Roman, Arthurian, and Shakespearean mythology.  

I love his use of colors, and the sense of movement in many of his paintings, particularly that born of the wind.  I chose some of my favorite Waterhouse paintings for this theme.

The font is called Radaern, and is available for free.

You might notice my error – I accidentally duplicated the weekend Mood Box sticker instead of the weekday one.  Oh well.  I knew what it meant.

You might also notice how little I wrote on this week’s planner even though by the time I remembered to take pictures the week was nearly over.  Some weeks I write all over the pages and some weeks I barely have a to-do list.  Life has a way of doing that.  I don’t always have the time, energy, or fucks available to be thorough in my planning; but there’s plenty of room for whatever I need, even if I just need something pretty to look at now and then.

This week we feature one of my favorite animals, deer (and their relatives).  I’ve always adored the white-tails who inhabit my part of the world, and knowing that I came from people who killed them pretty much just for fun** broke my heart long after I finished reading Bambi.

That’s right, reading – did you know Bambi started out as a novel by Felix Salten?  I need to keep my eye out for a copy of the edition I checked out from the library a hundred times as a kid.  It’s ostensibly a children’s book, but it’s pretty damn dark, sort of a lighter version of something like Watership Down (another favorite book of my childhood, go figure). There’s no Thumper, no Flower, but there is a lot of death and a less romanticized version of Bambi and Faline’s relationship (meaning they basically only had one until mating season was over).  

Anyway, leaving for work at 6:30 in the morning means I often get to see deer up around my workplace which is on a huge wooded lot.  They still make my breath catch when they run, and their little spotty babies with the big knobby knees still make me squee.  I’ve long considered deer a sacred animal (not that they’re not all sacred, but this one has a particular mystical significance for me, both as a creature of the forest and as the symbolic animal of my once-upon-a-dance god).

Art resources I could find are below the images.

Tuesday

Unknown by Olena Shmahalo   – Thank God for TinEye.com or I’d never have figured out the artist of this lovely piece!  I still have no idea what its name is, as it isn’t in her gallery.

Friday  

Fermata by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law.  Prints available.

Sunday

Glade by Bluecrow10. No prints of this one, but you can download it.

 

** Don’t bother defending hunting in comments, I won’t answer – vegan, remember?
