Comment:
We've found a kind of paradise in a flowers bloom.
We've seen the end of a mystic land so close it meets the parting sun.
We've shared the thoughts that two could share, we feel the truth, magic that we send...

Searching for something new
Isle of Gold in flowers bloom

We've heard a kind of paradise beyond the desert's dunes.
We've walked the earth in solitude, so cold we need the warmth of sun.
We've lived the life that we could live, we see the truth magic that begins...

Searching for something new
Isle of Gold in flowers bloom

We've found a kind of paradise, below a sky so new.
We've weaved a web of mystery so wide, we need the light of day.
We've worn the cloak of secret lives, we've seen the truth, magic that we send...

Searching for something new
Isle of Gold in flowers bloom

so when will it end?
so when, when will we meet, my friend?


"Strangers" - Yoko Kanno

Something precious I've been working on for over five days for hours at a time. It was inspired by feeling and music, dreams and visions in my mind's eye. H'jad is one of the most precious creations to me for reason I could never begin to explain. There are a hand full of characters of mine that make my heart smile by just being them. The same can be said for the ocean. I love water, I love swimming even though I don't get to that often..

Together, he and the ocean evoke so many feelings that I can't even put words to. Though more than anything I wanted to show the wild and free spirit that both sea and steed share. There is a link between the two, deep and beautiful; as is the link between myself and this most special equine of mine. Its hard to explain, though I know a few friends will understand. So where my words fail me, there is always the language of art. <3

The piece itself is yet another large scale being 1400 x 1500 pixels, which isn't nearly as large as the -Cold Heritage- piece but big enough to slow my computer down. The ocean background was inspired by the song Vorrina Pi as well as the beautiful commission I recieved from ~FireofAnubis (check it out here - [link] ). The piece will also soon be available as a print and will be sold in both my Etsy shop and at any con I attend.

With all that said, enjoy~ <3
