What are your favourite kinds of subjects to paint?

Oo, good question! In some ways, I think I’m still finding my feet as a painter; I only tried painting during the masters and hadn’t really painted much prior (I had always worked in pencils/coloured pencils, mostly). Luckily, I think I gelled with acrylics pretty quickly, or at least, my tutor thought so and encouraged me to keep painting.
Topic wise, I’m very much drawn to fantasy, mythology, history and folklore. I’m not *overly* wild on painting people, but that’s partly because I still find that tricky! (In terms of getting skin tones right, etc).
I enjoy painting textures, so painting clothing I find enjoyable too (particularly if it’s detailed in nature!). I reckon I’d enjoy anything that’s quite elaborate or requires a great attention to detail. I haven’t painted much of it yet in general, but nature was also enjoyable to paint, with being able to be looser and freer with the brushstrokes, to make it look more natural and authentic. I’m still finding my way I think, but this is what I enjoy the most so far! :)

What are your favourite kinds of subjects to paint

Honestly, those podcasts sound super interesting! Can you recommend me a few?

Of course! 😊
For pure mythology from across the world, I highly recommend “Myths and Legends”; I’ve come across so many amazing stories through these guys, and I love the narration/the modern retelling of them, particularly the humour! Goofy humour is the best 😆
*~ Urban folklore ~*
• Lore: Basically it’s about unusual events in history and urban folklore in general, but this one I recommend the most out of these!
• Unexplained (this is the more creepier one, so if you’re a scaredy cat like me, don’t listen to this one when you’re about to go to sleep 😅🙈)
• Unobscured. Each season is a deep dive into a particular topic, the first one was on the Salem Witch Trials and the second was on Spirituality in 1800s America. It’s pretty cool stuff :)
• Cabinet of Curiosities. They’re 10min episodes on strange and funny findings from present day to way back.
• Noble Blood: This one I highly recommend. It’s unusual tales from rather fascinating monarchs - from outright quirky to intriguing murder plots, and everything in between :)
I think that’s it!! Sorry for the mammoth answer, I hope you’ll like them 🤗

I'm visiting your home. When you step out of the room I scan your bookshelf. Based on the subject matter displayed there, what could I learn about you?

That’s a really cool question! :)
I suppose at first glance, there would be a surprisingly few amount of books, as most of mine I’ve often rented from the library, or are upstairs in the loft. I tend to listen to audiobooks while painting these days!
The ones you can see though, would suggest that I probably have a strong love of fantasy, with books on stories set in mystical worlds, exploring the themes within Greek and Norse mythology, to name a few.
That and being a creative too, with books on art and cinema, such as the works of Van Gogh, and the production of making certain films. 📚✨

In ancient India, was there a city named Devanāgara? According to foreign legend, the alphabetic name of Hindi originated from the name of this city. I don't know if it's true?

See Devanagari basically means " city of Gods" and according to the mythology Sanskrit was the language of Gods . Sanskrit language led to the development of modern day Hindi language.....
It was developed from ancient Vedic Sanskrit which was spoken by the Aryans which was later transcended into " Pali" language in which Lord Buddha had given his summons which further got translated into "Prakrit" language used by the followers of Jainism because Sanskrit was too difficult for common people to understand and use in daily life....So even the Prakrit got translated into " Apbhramsha " during the late 9-11 A.D. and then after Hindi was developed into ancient ( 11-14 century) , medieval (1400-1850 AD ) and finally to it's modern form after the 1850s.... I hope you would be clear

@wrathoftartaros - I was allowed to meet Helena again today. She is a goddess from Greek mythology and has been on earth a little longer. I must say that what she told me sounds like a good plan - to bring Zeus to earth and to get her friends out of Tartaros. Although as a gifted human (with abilities if you like to say so) Tartaros would be very dangerous to me but I am sure I can show her some things on earth. But I admire how focused you are and hope you reach your goal. And of course you are an absolute goddess, so a beauty. You guys should check her out!

Blind Faith is basically having faith in something that you have absolutely no facts about basically everything that is religion is blind faith is people having faith in something that has no basis of fact so mythology basically sorry if this does not make sense as I am drunk

Oh? So is that someone who needs to see, taste or touch to believe in anything beyond the comprehension of science and metaphysics?

Do you believe in other gods of Greek mythology as well wether you like them or not?

Greek mythology isn't something that I personally follow, though it is interesting to learn lol
Wicca is one of those paths that is varied in connections to gods, goddess, deities (what ever you prefer to call them), depending on what form of wicca you choose. There is multiple.
I think in a way, that is why it can become rather confusing.

"Gaia" is that a conscious entity or what? Can you please elaborate 🙄😊 Plus what attributes does it posses? To be honest, never herd this term before😇

Gaia herself is from Greek mythology. She's the mother of titans.
In Wicca, specifically that of green wicca, which is what I connect to and follow the path of, she is the remnant of nature :)
Like I said, she is Mother Nature :)
You can Google her lol. There's varying texts that connect to varying faiths.

wow you have some knowledge .... am impressed, yeah Saturn and Pluto together are always dangerous. what about plamistry, do you believe that the lines on our hand represent something?

I have no idea about palmistry. I'm really into greek mythology though. Even took a course on it in my first year. A lot of fixed stars have themes based in greek mythology so those really interest me, particularly the star Algol located in the constellation of Perseus.

If you became a god over a specific thing, like the ones from Greek or Norse mythology for example, what'd you be a god of? What'd you use your godly powers for? ⚡??☘

I used to always think about this as a child.
I'd be the Goddess of Love, Protection & Kindness.
Why Love?
Love is indescribable. It’s unconditional, selfless. It makes me happy. I feel better when I’m around people because I love them all. It makes me truly care about everyone and everything. With love, all materialistic things fade.. Appearances don’t matter, imperfections don’t matter. You love them for what they are and what you are when you’re around them. Love doesn’t need to be mutual. Love comes from within, it doesn’t need to be reciprocated. We should all continue to love everyone, regardless, for love comes from within. I *strongly* believe that platonic, real, honest love exists, I just feel like people stopped believing and that’s what I would be there for, to spread love in people’s hearts :)
Why Protection?
Protection comes with value. You value your mother, your child, your friends because they have value in your mind and heart. However, another person might see that person and judge them to be worthless of value and protection, your opinion doesn't mean anything to them. You're probably wondering how that makes me different from everyone else? Why would I be a Goddess of protection and why can't anyone else be? That is simply because I believe everything and everyone is valuable, meaning I wouldn't draw my conclusion on an emotional basis. Basically, I would protect what I deem valuable, so everyone and everything would be, and would *feel* protected.
Why Kindness?
I learnt the hard way that being a kind person doesn’t guarantee that others will be kind too..
You only have control over yourself and how you choose to be as a person. You can only choose to accept other people or walk away..
Not while I’m around though. I would plant so much kindness in people’s hearts without manipulating or controlling them. They are still free to act however they want. But I believe that if people were taught/shown kindness, there wouldn’t be any problems in the world. Laugh all you want, kindness really does fix everything.
*bonus* I even drew a little sketch to show you guys what I'd imagine mysef to look like... Notice the strong, seductive, dominant eyes. Like I said, it's just a rough sketch. But I would have beautiful, mesmerising, long hair. Strong cheekbones. Thick eyebrows. I'd look very attractive and captivating.
Sorry for my rlly long answer btw!

I was always drawn to Athena, Artemis and a little to Hera as well.
Athena and Artemis are extremely intelligent and independent goddesses with a unique background story. E.g. Athena was born out of Zeus mind. But I also admire Hera for her empathy, though she had her times where she acted extremely unkind due to her husband cheating on her and to his whole other children. But overall is still one of the most empathic goddesses, the mother goddess. I admire her empathy.
I'd say I wanna be a mix of all three. Because of the great positive traits they have. Smartness. Independence. Empathy.
With my powers, I'd like to change our world and probably even other worlds for the better.

Oo, that’s a tough one. Poseidon has always intrigued me, I think have control over one of the elements would be amazing - having the ability to breathe underwater, calm storms, etc! Basically to be like Aang from the Last Airbender, ahah.
Apollo would be a pretty awesome choice; the god of music, poetry, light, prophecy, and medicine. The arts, science and being spiritual? It’s quite diverse!! But if you mean over one thing purely, would covering purely the arts count?
Basically I can’t decide, but I’d want to use my powers for good. Whether that be calming natural disasters, providing aid to those who need it or inspiring those who seek knowledge in that particular field :)

I don’t feel like ruling over anything to be fair, too much responsibility.. but I’d probs be god of intelligence, to make people think and behave smarter. Like actual keeping distance and not starting fights over little things

Narcissists...the phenomenon of today’s world. Involvement with one can be so damaging it can put people in hospital. Glad you liberated yourself from them. Do you think you’ve grown stronger after being with one?

Narcissists were always there. From the beginning of time but only discovered with further psychological researches. The story of Narciss - I don't know if you know about it - It's about a guy who fell in love with his own reflection in the water, does not come out of anywhere ( I actually guess it's from the Greek mythology but I don't know exactly). Every human tends to bit a bit narcissistic. That's also healthy. I'm just talking about those who have this narcissistic disorder in a more unhealthy way. There are also different types of narcissistic disorder.
And yeah you're right it nearly put me into a mental hospital. Luckily my partner is a psychological student and he helped me to discover what kind of person I was dealing with and helped me to overcome this toxic friendship of mine.
Well, I think "what doesn't kill me, makes me stronger" is kinda true but still healing is not an exponential line after the breakdown. It's more like on some days you feel like you overcome everything and it doesn't hurt anymore and on other days it feels like everything comes back again in waves and you feel super insecure and vulnerable.
Thank you for asking and listening! Also, I hope for you to find the right people, who treat you right and be there for you.
