The-Eagle-Cries

Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie!

America is being destroyed because of greed.

Dedicated to all our American Veteran Heroes who have sacrificed so much to protect and preserve our Constitutional Rights, Freedoms and Americans' safety. We Americans are indebted immeasurably to all our Veteran Heroes. We must honour them by standing together as United Americans seeing to it all that our Heroes sacrificed for, is not taken away from us by those who seek huge financial gains for themselves alone. ANYONE, including our government, our politicians, CIA, etc., who jeopardizes Americans' rights, freedoms, safety, and so forth, is an abominable disgrace for such individuals profoundly dishonour and desecrate all that our service men and women have given to, sacrificed for our country, with so many who have sacrificed the ultimate by giving up their lives. Our American Heroes did NOT make the sacrifices they did for the greedy elite, the greedy corporations, to bleed our country and Americans dry nor to make America a puppet for or a part of a one world government. Our Heroes gave their lives TO KEEP AMERICA FREE!! It is our responsibility as Americans to make damn sure, AMERICA REMAINS FREE!! We can ONLY accomplish this as a UNITED PEOPLE.

United, we stand; divided, we fall;
It is up to us ALL to make the call.
We either honour, preserve, and save
Or forfeit and dishonour all who gave.
When we work together to keep America free, 
We honour those who gave ALL to make us be; 
But against each other, using forces of hate, 
We forfeit freedom’s sacrifices and desecrate.
~ Artsieladie/Sharon Donnelly

Across spacious skies the eagle flies
Over mountains, valleys, and plains;
On majestic wing but with no song to sing
For the greedy are robbing all gains.

A nation's seeds of many colours, creeds,
Created with liberty and justice for all;
Divided is wrong when united is strong,
But division now threatens her to fall.

The eagle's land once so grand,
The home of the brave and free
Is under the spell of the wicked cartel,
While sleeping eyes wake not to see.

The eagle weeps as darkness creeps
In shadows across this great land.
Our freedom's story, once of glory,
Now written by the elitists' hand.

For all the lives lost, the ultimate cost,
The Eagle Cries, shedding rivers of tears,
As the greedy elite conspire to defeat
America, the eagle trembles in fears.

Though the eagle still soars over her shores
Where once was widespread brotherly Love,
The Eagle Cries down now over many a town,
A dismal view is the sight from up above. 

For all the many lies, in shame The Eagle Cries;
The deafened hear not its piercing screams
Of the eagle, forlorn, as it trumpets to warn
The People and the threat to our dreams.

From uncertain skies The Eagle Cries,
Shuddering, gripped with fears;
Over America, the great, of uncertain fate,
Her majesty fading, reflects in eagles' tears.

Across spacious sky will the eagle again fly
Over a land where people united, stand,
Proud and free from sea to shining sea,
Under God's Grace and Guiding Hand?

Rights-Carry-Responsibilty

Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie!

I think the title and the poem with covers the gist of the message here. Having rights and freedoms is a privilege we should cherish by showing respect for having them, period. 
"Rights Carry Responsibility"
Art/poetry by Artsieladie

We have the right to freedom of speech and expression,
But we have NOT the right to use them for transgression.
A right is a privilege to be respected every time we use
And not as a platform to others, harass, insult, abuse.

So many are quick to claim their right to freedom of speech,
But don't give a second thought to how the right, they breach.
If one exercises their rights, they have also an obligation,
To use the rights responsibly, with respect and consideration.

We all don't have to the same, believe, think, like, or live,
But it's all of our duties to respect towards others, give.
If one uses their rights to antagonise, bully, or spread hatred,
They're abusing their rights and should have them confiscated.

If one cannot respect their rights, use them responsibly,
They don't deserve to have them, to abuse them liberally.
Disrespecting our rights is dishonouring those who gave,
Who sacrificed their lives, to our rights and freedoms, save.

So, if you're one of those who's disrespectful, with no class,
Who chooses to use your rights to bully, bash, harass,
Remember who/what you desecrate is despicable, at best;
A reflection of yourself; from others, likewise you request.

I say this to anyone who elects to abuse a right,
"Why don't YOU strap on combat boots and fight;
Put YOUR life on the line, a place of living hell,
And see how YOU would like then, disrespect as well."

Pegasus-Of-Passion

Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie!

Comparing my early digital art to my more recent work. In this case, the latest version is very recent.

My early work, besides being a beginner with digitally created art, appears faded because for years I worked with a monitor screen that was much darker than a screen should be, although I wasn't aware of this then. During my early years with a computer, I thought my monitor's display to be 'normal'. Because it was so dark, I created art so much lighter, hence faded looking on a normal monitor. It wasn't until 2011 when I changed to a much better and larger HD monitor that my art lost its faded look and being able to see what I'm doing better has also helped me to improve my digital art skills. Thank you, Hans.

Hoo-ah

Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie!

As we remember the fallen on this Memorial Day,
Who have sacrificed all, with their lives did pay,
So our land can be free, we honour the brave
Who've fought for our freedoms and rights, to save.
To all our soldiers who are presently serving,
Of our honour and respect, you are deserving.
That my daughter's chosen, it makes me proud,
To know she's serving with America's finest crowd!
~ Love, 
Mom

Moms

Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie!

Any woman can be a mother biologically,
But it takes a special lady for, a Mom, to be.
~ Artsieladie Quote 
"Moms"
Happy Moms Day to all the Moms!

Moms are special folks with no other quite as dear;
For her child she'll face anything regardless of her fear.
Her children are her life, her purpose, and her reason;
Her Love is never out of style nor in need of any season.

She gives every day from her heart and her soul,
Knowing well the importance and privilege of her role.
Her children, for the world she would not ever trade;
For they are her blessings from God, He made.

Although the cord is cut upon her child's birth,
The bond of her Love grows in value and in worth.
Besides her own pain, she feels her child's too,
Like theirs is her own, for in essence it is true.

She's fiercer than a lion's pride all combined in one,
Yet, shows understanding when mistakes are done.
Though she may feel disappointed in the short,
In the long run she wavers ever not with her support. 

In her child's best interests she will always choose,
Even if her child's Love is at stake, she could lose.
A Mom's Love is about to always first protect
Even when it means her child may strongly object.

More than just a mother, biologically,
Is required to be a Mom, wholeheartedly.
Mothers do give birth to a life grown within,
But a Mom knows this is only where Love does begin.

When a mother becomes a Mom, she signs on for life,
Welcomes all the joys to come, knowing too will be strife.
Her treasure chest of memories, all filed with such care,
Not a single memory will she be willing to ever spare.

Moms are special folks with no other quite as dear,
Who, for the challenging role of Mom, do volunteer
Their heart and Love, their life, with conditions never set
And always feeling blessed being Mom with no regret.

Tinkerbell

Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie!

My daughter loves Tinkerbell and has since a wee little girl. I read to her a lot as a child. Her favourite stories were about Peter Pan and Tinkerbell and I read these most often. When I asked her what story she'd like me to read, she would say, "A story with Tinkerbell and Peter Pan." I would suggest another one since I had read it the night before, but she would say, "That's okay. I like that story. It's my favourite one." So, this work, "Tinkerbell", I created for her.

Log-Cabin-House

Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie!

I entered this digital artwork in the Elftown House Competition, 2006, and it won! I remember creating this like it was yesterday. It took me four and a half weeks! I literally built this house digitally, one log at a time, and put them together to make the house, and then there were all the rest of the details that came afterward.

Well, then in 2014 I opened the PSD of the above image up one day and thought to myself, "I should re-do this, give it a complete make-over." ..And so, I did! In all the years since creating the first version, I've greatly improved with my digital skills AND I've made thousands and thousands of graphics, including my own trees, grasses, wood/fencing, etc., as well as lots of horses. I LOVE horses! I made all new roofs, a new chimney, put on additions, and decided to make it larger as a desktop/monitor size (1920x1080). This gave me additional space to work with to add a garage, barns, fences, fields/pastures, and of course, horses, transforming it into a nice horse farm, which I titled it, "Dreamy Acres". As one can see, I love details. I even put curtains and blinds up and plants in some windows! This second round, the re-do, took me a little over three weeks. So, the time this piece took all totaled overall (both versions), not counting the separate graphic projects, such as the trees, fencing, grasses, horses, etc., was nearly two months. This is what the original (above) transformed into:

Happy-Mothers-Day-In-Heaven

Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie!

Here in the USA it's Mother's Day this Sunday, the 14th. It's a rough day to make it through when you're missing your Mom. On the other hand I am a mother and I wouldn't trade this role for anything in the world. Happy Mother's Day to all Moms.

How I miss you, Mom,
All the times we spent together. 
I Loved all the times we talked
About everything, even weather. 

Just spending time with you
Meant the world to me; 
Sharing all your wisdom
Helped me to wiser be. 

What I wouldn't give
To have more time with you, 
To turn back the clock, 
Make yesterdays anew.

I was told this would get easier
As time went on and passed, 
But it was all so untrue
Because missing pain does last. 

As long as I live to draw a breath, 
With each greeting of the dawn, 
With each closing of a day, 
I'm reminded you are gone. 

Holidays, your birthday, 
I barely make it through, 
But Mother's Day especially
Because the greatest Mom is you. 

But every day is Mother's Day, 
For not a single day goes by, 
I don't think of you and miss you
With tears swelling up each eye. 

Happy Mother's Day In Heaven, 
Mom, to you with Love I send. 
Only when we're reunited, will my
Heartache from missing you, end.

Line-Of-Love

Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie!

I'm sure many folks can relate to this poem. The hardest aspect about losing one you Love is missing them, no longer having them in our life. If we could only talk to them, the grief wouldn't be so hard to endure.

For long distance there's a plan
To reach the world around, 
But to where I need to reach, 
A line cannot be found. 

Long distance is good to have, 
But it doesn't meet my need. 
Technology falls short, 
Cannot fulfill my plead.

If Heaven I could call, 
I'd call Heaven every day. 
Maybe then my heart would
Not hurt so much this way. 

All service providers' stocks
Would soar off the chart,
If we could talk to Heaven, 
Connect with those in our heart. 

Heaven's line would be flooded
From use, red hot all the time. 
What profits could be made
With a charge of just a dime! 

But just like other services, 
I'm sure there would be greed,
Capitalising on the hearts
Who'd want to fill this need. 

Long distance to Heaven
Would be beyond great
And would be the 'Line Of Love'
Straight to Heaven's Gate!
