True you ride the finest horse I have ever seen
Standing sixteen, one or two, with eyes wild and green
And you ride the horse so well, hands light to the touch
I could never go with you no matter how I wanted to

Ride on, see you, I could never go with you
No matter how I wanted to
Ride on, see you, i could never go with you
No matter how i wanted to

When you ride into the night without a trace behind
Run your claw along my gut, one last time
I turn to face an empty space, where once you used to lie
And look for a spark that lights the dark
Through a teardrop in my eye

Ride On- Christy Moore
(you can listen it here: [link])

Third of the images I made in summer. I know, I am little out of sync as the second image should have been uploaded before and the "best should have been kept last" but I wrote stock credits for this one before the second image and I am having color troubles with the second image.. so "Ride On"..

The song.. I had totally diffrent song in mind when I worked on this image. The song in mind was really powerful.. Strong.. so those where the things I started but turning the day I worked on it.. I realized that it will go more with that Christy Moore's song and the horse somehow made the connection for me.. And then.. reading the lyrics I realized yes.. this song will be the one.

This song.. I have no idea what the author meant with it. In one interview I have heard, Christy Moore said that everyone who listens the song, has their own story on it.. And they see it diffrently and that is something he considers good and great songs do.

So this is my vision and my story.. And now.. month or so later, it has changed from the moment I made this image by things in my life..

We all make our choices in life. We all have our ambitions and when we found the strenght to fulfill them.. there is usually a prize.. In this case - it is leaving someone behind. You have to move on.. move towards your dreams and your desires.. If you believe from all your heart.. you have to go.. You have to try to catch every possibility you can. And that I have been doing..

So.. there is no reason to be afraid.. I believe those who have goal, will work towards it.. They change their life.. and sadly, that changes other people lives.. Some people have to be left behind.. They cannot come with you.. Some of us are so great persons.. They just are above us.. They are tallented and they are gifted. Maybe it can be said that we can be honored that we knew them.. as they are light sun in our days.. showing us things in life we never knew.. telling us stories we had never heard.. but then.. as they have such a great ambitions.. and such a great goals.. they just cannot stand there with you.. they have to go on.. trying to achieve even more and more.. If they can, they should.. for greater good.. and some people.. those who have shared they in their life for a moment, will have to stay in the same place.. just look the other person ride into the night.. going on with their life.. trying to achieve more.. and no matter how much we want.. we never can go with them.. as we are from diffrent worlds.. We live our lives diffrently..

But no matter.. if they are gone.. You are still here. You look to the empty place they used to be.. and remember their greatness.. The moments they shared with you.. The good and the bad.. the dreams and the hopes.. All those fantastic times.. And all the joys and laughter.. And maybe then can you be in contempt and accept.. that she had to go.. Maybe she will come back.. and maybe she can accept that you could have never come with her.. And then she will ride to the night.. without any trace behind..

Just like a memory.. And sometimes memory is all we have left..

And that memory can spark us a light when all other lights have gone out..

Incredibly beautiful as always! I have no idea how I haven`t faved it earlier. Lovely colours and details and very touching story as well.
P.S. Your taste in music is exceptional, I listen to pretty much all songs you cite as inspiration and seem to love them all!

This is beautiful. The imagery of the storm vs. the colourful dawn to represent the potential of a bright future verses the pain and turmoil of leaving the past, including people, behind is really well conceived. Wonderful work dear!
