Painting the Sky by spyra Painting the Sky by spyra
Painting the Sky,
when my Head is in the Clouds
and my Feet are off the Ground.

After all these years,
the single best defense I have
against the Reaity of Life
is still my Imagination.

No matter how dark
the Clouds are underneath
I can still keep painting them
White.

======

...because some days are just dark.

Photoshop 7, 36 layers, many many hours. @_@

Wow. This is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. I mean your eyes are moved around the page, you have a floral effect, and her hair! I am so amazed.
