Celestial Spring

Starlight shied
From the blackholes
of her eyes—and all
the spangled
wrapped their arms
around her shoulders
like memories.

Chrysalis-Lyn's Profile Picture
United States
Chrys, for short. I'm a writer/traditional artist who enjoys drawing mythological creatures & writing free-verse poetry. My aesthetic proclivities vary wildly, but I find myself drawn towards foxes, phoenixes, and generally ethereal images.

I try my best to reach out to & respond to everyone who has shown me kindness--though I'm socially-anxious. Thank you for visiting my page and supporting me!



Watercolor & Colored pencil

Just a paisley peacock-creature, courting the darkness that exists at the center of everything.
What's Mine to Give
Pen & Watercolors & Colored pencil

What's mine to give...
I'll gladly give to you...
Love, Among the Rush
Gouache & Colored Pencil

The phoenix whispered to me
of its own fall: flushed with color.

How could one ever hope to find
solace, peace-of-mind?

among the rush?

...Big gouache painting that I finally decided to finish. Might be my most objectively colorful painting yet.
Abandon Your Mechanics
Pen & Colored Pencil

Struggling between two mirror-opposites of personality. One: a mechanical beast. The other: warm, flush with life and fire. Precious moments are those where I feel safe enough to abandon my metal skin.

Sketch. Been thinking about what it would be like to come face to face with internal beasts--i.e. insecurities, does one confront these things? How does one ever make peace?
Chrys here.

I don't anticipate I'll be writing many journal entries; however, I received a notification the other day saying that I have been a member for 6 months. While anniversaries (& demi-anniversaries) have always struck me as arbitrary, this one deserves some reflection--especially given what a wild whirl this half-year has been!

I know I have been posting a ridiculous amount these past few weeks. Watchers, I didn't intend to drown you in a relentless art-deluge, I promise! I am just so happy to have found this venue for self-expression, and I am grateful to all of the talented artists I have met here Hug Thank you everyone for supporting and inspiring me!
Moving forward, I plan on resting my hand some (which has grown tired from drawing so many intricate details) and working more diligently on my poetry. Perhaps more of my future drawings will relate to poems. Keep up the lovely artwork everyone, and thanks again!
