Caitlyn
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
My real-life name is Caitlyn, though I consider ladyphlogiston to be my name also. I'm mostly here because I wanted to have all my art in one easy-to-access place, instead of having it scattered about Facebook and various blog posts.

I'm married to my childhood sweetheart, and we have two little girls. I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering but never really used it. I am a Messianic Jew, a Jew who believes that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Messiah. I consider my alignment to be Chaotic Good. Despite a creative and nurturing mother and an excellent high school art teacher, my art was mostly squelched for a long time by anxiety and depression. As I've gotten spiritual deliverance and psychoemotional healing, it's been coming out more and more. I try to paint or sketch every day, which doesn't happen, but I'm better off when it does.

Some of my paintings are prophetic, which just means that God gave me an image to paint and I painted it. Sometimes that's an in-the-moment thing, where I sit down with my supplies and paint what comes into my head, and sometimes He gives me the sketch when I'm away from home and I paint it later. I don't know yet how He plans to use them.

I mostly paint in acrylics, but I also enjoy oil pastel and pen drawing (I don't like drawing with pencil - the ability to make corrections is bad for me) and printmaking and a number of other things. I'm more-or-less participating in the Documented Faith project, which means that I sit down with a sketchbook once a week to journal about what God and I have been up to and to paint or draw whatever I feel like. Some of those artworks are prophetic-ish, some are not. Some are just duds, which is why not every week gets posted.

get well card for Beth
Paper embroidery goes much better when you pre-punch the holes! I felt rather silly for not figuring that out sooner.

Card for my cousin, who was hit by a car. Uses feather stitch (I was aiming for Cretan, but paper can't take very dense stitches), chain stitch, and reversed running stitch (which I used rather than backstitch or stem stitch because it would stress the holes less). I designed the pattern myself, but the lettering is based on the font Alex Brush on fontsquirrel.com

From photo. Fountain pen sketch, acrylics applied with wipe-out tool, brush pen for shadows.

Our bodies cannot heal because the spirit is dead, but in God we are alive and His Spirit lives in me. We call out to dry bones, "come alive."

babies playing (25 March 2017)
Attempted a sketch of the babies playing. I got one of them done before they saw me with the pen out and came over to see what I was doing and try to grab it.

Experiment with wipe-out tool as a painting tool.

Discussed 1 John 1:9 with my daughter. She listened intently while I read it (in ESV, no less) and said, "so...we confess sin, and then....God cleans us!" I'm quite proud of her.

I blog at My Brain and Other Curiosities and I have a devotional blog at Truth By Bits.
