You Can Have It All by ephemeral-d You Can Have It All by ephemeral-d
...but the price might be higher then you can imagine ;)

Made this one, while reading, Jan Yoors "the Gypsies". He lived a while with gypsies as he was a very young boy, from a belgian family [link]
I wouldn't like to live that way, but I can understand, why people want...
It' s a nice book and inspired me for "you can have it all".

The name, I took from a song again :) Band: Böhse Onkelz, name of the song: "Du kannst alles haben" (You can have it all). I just love that song and even after listening it a million times, it still makes me smile. The singer says to a girl, that she can have everything from him, what she wants, his love, his life etc. :blahblah: and his anger, his hate, his lies... :giggle:
he simply says the truth ;)
One good sentence in this song is "Maybe I'm not the right one for you" or "Let me complicate your life...and I will always be, there for you"

I thought about, to took one of them as the name of this painting/drawing, but I decided just to take the title of the song, the rest is already in it:)

The drawing is about adoring something or someone, without knowing or imagine what could be behind.

And I guess the Dalai Lama said something like that, that it can be a great luck, not receiving, what you want ;)

You have any tricks, how oil is getting dry sooner!?! It takes so much time... :hmm:

Oh, okay, lol. I will google that up ~thanks.

I have two air purifiers in my apartment but only because it can get dusty at times and summer over here have been cooler than usual. For me, what I've done so far have taken me four days each session but I add the extra day just for good measure.
