It’s from “la source des femmes”

IT’S TRUE.

THERE IS NOTHING IN THE QU’RAN THAT SAYS WOMEN’S SOLE PURPOSE IS FOR OBEYING AND PROCREATING.

We are allowed to inherit and own property and businesses, and we are allowed to CHOOSE our husbands instead of having them foisted upon us in arranged marriages. WE ARE ALSO ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE IN COMBAT.

I’ve read the Qu’ran COVER TO COVER and there’s nothing God says about women being LESS than men. In fact, God IMPLORES men to treat women as equals. Probably because God knew men have a tendency to foul things up and has to remind them that WOMEN ARE ALSO PRECIOUS CREATIONS OF HIS DIVINE WILL.

Sorry. I was in my feelings. But this touches my nerves a lot when people misinterpret Islam as some misogynistic religion. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Well, as promised, here’s my now completed “Rise of the Guardians” fan art piece, “Still Dream”. The title comes from the gorgeous song at the end of the film, and I’ve posted a quote with it adapted from G.K. Chesterton. Medium is watercolor and color pencils on watercolor paper.

I plan to post some progressional pictures of the entire piece in the near future, and probably some better close-ups of sections, since some of the detail inevitably gets lost in a full shot like this.

Thank you Dreamworks, William Joyce, and Peter Ramsey for giving us this wonderful story, which has quickly become one of my all-time favorite films ever. The gorgeous animation has inspired me artistically, and the story itself means more to me than I could possibly begin to convey in a short blog post.

Thanks also to each of you who have shared in my excitement about this piece! I am so delighted to finally be able to post the finished painting.
