WOW!!! You guys have catapulted this image into the #1 spot of my alltime best images here on dA! I had no idea it would be that popular. Thank you!!! I'm sorry I can't get back to each and every one of you, but know that I am SO grateful! Thank you!!!!

I will cry soft silver tears with the rain
Burn with the bursting heat of sun
Long with the pull of the moon
Roll with the tides
And shine with the stars....

Long ago, in a dA galaxy far far away, one of my fledgling photomanipulations was of this very pose by Elandria, on a gypsy wagon. I decided to revisit the image, and make it what I originally intended, but didn't have the skills for back then. :) So, this one's for you, Elandria-girl! You are a force of nature, and then some!
Here is a link to the original. I deleted it long ago from my account, but you can still see it at :icondesigningdivas:

This image is so unique, colorful, and beautiful that I bet you could have a whole career just creating gypsy scenes like this and "Wanderlust". People love the fantasy of gypsy life and you created that perfectly here. I would love to see more like this. I would never tire of this theme.

I have absolutely adored this image ever since I first saw it in the Somerset: Digital Studio magazine a few years back! Don't know why I never thought to look for you on DeviantArt, but I'm glad I found it again. And your other artworks are just as amazing! :D

I would be interested in where the wagon came from or how it was originally rendered for use in this composition.

It's the rare sort of art that spurs some kind of emotion that's somewhere between excitement and awe. :)
It makes me want to hang a print of this on my wall! :love:

Hi Anjalena!

Yes, I sure did! DecalGal sells a number of my skins. :) Alas the picture changes in lightness/darkness depending on the kind of printer used, so yeah, those decals turn out darker than usual.

Thanks for your sweet note though, and your concern! You never know when stuff like this will get jacked by companies. But mine are legit. :) You can also find my stuff as puzzles, t-shirts, journals and more in places like Walmart, and other big chain stores.

Did you sell usage rights for this image to a company that makes skins for devices like ereaders? Because I bought a skin for my Amazon Kindle Touch that has this EXACT painting on it. It's a bit dark on the decal but yeah, they're selling it. And by the way, it's absolutely GORGEOUS!
