Calm Spirits

By gilad

Another day dies
Darkness grasps my mind
This was one of those bad days
Yet, I can't help but feel empty it ends

All is silent except my heart
Calm spirits run through the ocean
I let my thoughts drown in the water
This night will deliver a new morning for me


It's been a while, I midssed you guys.
This is the longest I've been away since joining this site about 4 years ago. I hope to never have to stay away for that long again.

Haifa beach, Israel

Hey.. I've a question if you don't mind (but don't indulge me too much or I'll be asking questions about all of your pieces!)..

How'd you get the colors to be so bright and contrast-y? And the soft effect like the misty sea and the moving clouds?

I've featured this in my news article discussing the importance of taking alone time to focus on yourself and your needs to help maintain imagination and creativeness.

Thank you for sharing this with the community.

Your absense was horribly noticable. I did wonder where you had got to, deviantart wasn't the same without you!
But i'm glad you're back, you're the single deviant whose work I specifically come to see, although I myself haven't been around much recently, until today infact when I saw your 3 new deviations

Welcome Home
(have you ever seen [link]? (this is mine) It's a photo-a-day thing, that's truely epic! I suggest it, nothing serious, just a good journal...)

p.s you must've had THOUSANDS of messages in the time you were away :o

CRAZY colour contrast and complementaries. It is really stimulating, chillaaaaaaaaa!!
