Ancient Hittite Script

Hi all, I had a semi-restful weekend, I had work-men in to make a few changes to my home, plus I’m managing to rescue the back of the garden from weeds. I decided to try painting ancient Hittite script after watching a documentary on the ancient Anatolians.

I then added the script to a 3/4 face painting that I recently completed. lady and hittite script painting joanne seale

But most of my weekend was actually taken up with finishing the ‘Daughter of Smoke and Bones’ trilogy by Laini Taylor daughter of smoke and bones review joanne seale

This was an epic journey into other worlds, strange creatures, fallen angels, a bruised sky and a war which has been raging for thousands of years.

It starts off quite innocently with a girl (an art student in Prague) who collects teeth for her guardian who happens to be a Chimera (part human and part beast).

She doesn’t know what the teeth are for but is able to travel through ‘portals’ to various parts of the world in order to collect them. However the portals are being destroyed… and this is where the story really begins..  :)

This trilogy was like an epic dream that I didn’t want to awake from, I listened to it on Audible and the narrator Khristine Hvam completely transported me into the world Laini Taylor created, to the extent that I didn’t want to come back :)

It’s so amazing when a book does that to you, a rare and beautiful thing.. :)
