This is the Night version of Ascolais and the Waning Sun.

“Faintly to be heard was the wistful music of the blue-cupped flowers singing of ancient nights when a white moon swam the sky, and great storms and clouds and thunder ruled the seasons.”

I only just very recently began to read Jack Vance's works. I feel guilty for not giving them my mind sooner. I'm glad to see, though, that his legacy lives on in not only his books, but of the words he created and gave to us.

They are cool, and the short story styles makes them very easy to pick up and read.

Keep in mind though, this image was a variation I did on the Waning Sun one, In real Dying Earth lore, the moon escaped from orbit around earth millennia ago..

"Because the moon is gone and wind is often weak (the sun no longer heats the earth as much) the oceans are largely placid bodies of water with no tide and tiny waves."

Thanks for your comment. Reminded me that I need to go read some more of his stuff now.
