Day 22: A room


So many nooks, crannies, and secret hideaways to choose from, but I keep going back to the one in the Tainted Forest, and this one in Thelsamar:

I challenge any Horde to find as cozy, sweet, and snuggly warm as a Dwarf's cabin. Many of them are equipped with a painting of a beautiful nude woman, lying supine with a black or dark blue velvet undergarments. Okay, so technically she's not nude, but suggestive. Dwarf can't live by ale alone to inspire him, ya know?
Another one in the Thunderbrew Distillery, by the artist "One Note Brush Stroke"

This is Kellean, a new paladin: no disrespect to Luperci, but I needed to start fresh. Who am I kidding? I did it for the pretty horse:

Kellean with an old friend, keeping Stormwind safe. For now.

Today is finding me with time at home instead of work, where I have a mountain of things to do. I have  that same mountain here at home, so perhaps that is why my eyes popped open at 5 AM? Anyway, no matter. I was thinking I might do this new fun idea Erinys pointed my mind to:  Alt Appreciation by a blogger named Laeleiwyn. Effraeti has gotten in the spirit, too! And I thought to myself: "Matty, the last thing you need is one more project. So, I think I shall leave the Alt Appreciation posts to others. Don't hold me to it, though.

When I thought about the word for Day 22, I couldn't help but think of all those paintings from my undergraduate days, when I took on three motifs/topics: self-portraits of me in archetypal poses; marine biology in macro views (mostly mermaid's purses and shells); and paintings of interiors. These one is one of my first, and favorites:


  1. If Blizzard ever gives us player housing, I'm in the queue for a nice little place in either the Twilight Highlands or Ironforge. Although a summerhouse in the ruins of Gilneas wouldn't go amiss either.

    1. Oh, that would be lovely..../sigh

  2. Oh, I love that painting. I wish I still had some of mine. Oh one move, one of the movers saw a stack of naked women and admired them so I gave them to him, lol. Almost nothing I do survives me!

  3. I can't tell you how many I gave away, got lost in moves, destroyed by broken relationships, or poorly stored and got mold all over them...lost in the flood my friend would say...surviving myself: I completely understand!


Thank you for your comment!
