Pursuit of Happiness

Video of the first steps: [link]

I am not shy but I can't stay in one place any longer.
Often, you don't notice I am already on your shoulder,
But when I leave you, you may feel a bit heavyhearted.

My feathers are sweet and soothing like a fresh water,
You can collect them, as a photo or words in your dairy,
However you will never capture me in a tissue or a flask.

A lot of people don't believe I exist, they get over this.
Some of them think I am made of gold or colorful drugs,
Others can run away or attack me when I am approaching.

Many are those who are looking for a moment with me,
But they easily head for a wrong way, even if I call back.
I saw a lot of persons endangering their live to find me,
Several of them called me Death, War, Power or God.

Mostly time, if you catch me, you want more so I vanish.
Like for candy, the expectation is a hard moment to live,
Once consumed, the sweet things end tasteless, useless.
The best moment was the desire, a journey for the hope,

I exist when you pursue me, I disappear when you get me.

Time : 12 hours
Software : Photoshop CS2

C'est magnifique ! Que se soit l'image ou le poème, tout est beau ! D'ailleurs ce n'est pas seulement le cas de cette image, j'adore l'ensemble de ton travail, la beauté de ton art, le sens derrière chaque image... Je suis fan ! <3

Une petite question : Est ce toi qui écris les poèmes ? Si non, quelles sont tes sources ?

Your work is very inspiring! I like how every art piece tells a story behind it's concept, your art makes me want to keep going forward at being a Graphic Designer. I started a design portfolio for me & my girl we're going to start posting Digital Art , 3D-Dimensional & her Photography soon. Keep up your amazing talent my friend, I love seeing amazing art like yours.
