Shooting Star
There was something beautiful about the way the motorcycle sped past.
Ann-Marie watched the vehicle as it sped into the distance ahead of her. Its shining chrome gleamed in the sun, turning it into a veritable shooting star. A thin cloud of dust swirled in its wake, but that didn't dull the machine's sparkle. Its owner, a middle-aged man, sat astride it as proud as a sea-captain, his leather-covered arms spread wide to let his hands rest on the handlebars and his long hair billowing behind him.
And then he and his mechanical steed were gone, leaving Ann-Marie gazing after them.
She should have kept walking. After all, she was supposed to be hitch-hiking, and she wasn't going to get anywhere standing in one place and gawping after some Hell's Angel. But something about the sight she had just seen stilled her.
A shooting star.
Ann-Marie nearly started walking again, swinging one foot out in front of her. But then she hesitated and put it back down onto the dust. The truth was, she wanted

Hey guys,
   I decided to try joining Patreon! Patreon is crowdfunding for artists. I thought it would help me spend more time creating art and less time worrying about the cost of art supplies. If you like my artwork and want to help me create more, then you can help me out by donating to my page!

You can do as little as a $1, and I would love that. :) I want to paint huge paintings on huge canvases, but I've always held off due to cost of canvases. Now the fun part, you guys get REWARDS for being my patron. You can adjust the amount and give as much or as little as you want. I don't care either way, anything would help. If you contribute, I'll love you, if you don't, I'll still love you. (But I'd really like it if you would! Haha)

Check it out!

EtaniaVII's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
Hi guys and thanks for stopping by! My name is Anette and I'm a girl in college whose reason to get up in the morning is art and singing.

I love to tell a story on canvas. My brush is my pen and canvas is my paper. I have 1000 different ideas and story lines swirling in my head and putting a brush to canvas is my way of telling a story and letting the world see inside my mind and the inner workings of my day dreams and imagination. It's easier for me than words, and sometimes, it means more. A picture really does say 1000 words. When I get up each day to work on a painting, I know I have a reason to live that day. Not that I don't any other day, but on days when I create art, I especially feel that way.

I create paintings and drawings in pastel, graphite and charcoal. I also dabble in photography, fashion design, and jewelry design!

I'm self taught and I've been drawing seriously since Oct. 2012. I took a 2 year break so I've been drawing about 2 years. So far, I've only done traditional art. My hobbies are painting, drawing, (of course!) playing the piano, sewing, singing, dancing, practicing contortion, writing, and doing martial arts. My goal is to create photo-realistic art and perfectly re-create the human body in clay, stone, on paper, and on canvas. I'm a musical theatre major in college and loving it. I wouldn't mind being on Broadway with a side career as an artist. But maybe art will take over, who knows? I secretly want to be in the Louvre someday.

If you enjoy my artwork and various endeavors and would like to help me make more fantastical stuff, you can help me out by becoming a patron of my work on Patreon for just a $1! (Or more if you'd be so wonderful) Patreon is crowdfunding for artists! You can choose how much you want to give each month, plus you can always change or cancel at any time, and you get special rewards from me for being my patron :)

Here's the link for you lovely people!
