Sorry, but please fullview this.

The name of this has a double meaning for me. First off, the tempest refers to the storm that you can see. The other refrence is to the violin she's playing. I don't know about anyone else, but for me, hearing someone play the violin always feels like watching a storm reach it's height, then calm itself. Much like a storm.

(Please forgive me if there are any errors in this picture. The monitor that I'm stuck with has been on it's last legs for over a year now. :( )

Perfect combination.
In this ocasion, a good piece to play considering that powerful background would be a Paganini's caprice. I would choose Paganini's 5th caprice.

It's not everyday that I get a comment from someone so well versed in classical music. Thank you!

Very beautiful work! I love the contrast of the violent, powerful storm, with the mournful somber of the lone violinist. As if playing to the storm as it's soundtrack. Very beautiful, thought provoking work.

Man I had faved this ages ago - and just faved it again :lmao:

I wish I could get this as a print - just gorgeous and a different style for you. Its very ethereal even with the tension of the tempest. Well done - I really love this one!

I just realised I can't buy this as a print :( could you not get a model release? Love this piece though, it is still my favorite. But then my element is the ocean and my favorite instrument is the violin... hehe

The other people that I got the stock from (the sky and the water) gave me a critique instead of what I asked for: permission to print it. I gave up on asking them. :(

This is very cool. Your right, the zoom makes all the difference in this. I like the foggy and misty look to this whole piece. Nice job.

Thank you. :)
I wish I could post the larger version of this one, there's more detail in that, but people hate having to scroll. :(

reminds me strongly of an Apocalyptica tune . . . how odd, huh? but it does . . . . so dark, so stormy, so powerful and so overwhelming. :D

just call me bizarre! but I do love this one . . . it calls to me . . .. like a siren . . .
neserit's avatar
Wow! I haven't thought about Apocalyptica in such a long time!

Thank you for the :+fav: , hun! :glomp:

This is freaken awesome, hun!!
I love it!!!

You know Best Buy has monitors for about $50. I had to get one recently. If you don't have one near you you can order stuff on

We've actually sworn off BestBuy. We have one near us and Michael once worked there. Not only do they treat their customers like shit, but they fired Michael for coming up 26 dollars short in his drawer. Not only was it a check that would be impossible to steal and cash, and someone else took his drawer before they counted it, Michael had more than that in his pocket and in the bank. *shakes fist*

Ah, I see. The Best Buy near here is pretty cool, everyone is usually really helpful. Maybe a place like Staples or Office Max has a competive price on monitors. :shrug: I dunno.
neserit's avatar
There's one place that we like to go, but it might take us a while to get back there. I guess after I get the remainder of my financial aid, I might treat myself to a new one...again. :(

You should. I think it's important for your art and art is important.
