“All the charm of all the Muses...
often flowering in a lonely word.” Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Artist's Notes: When I set out to make this, I had no idea it would end up like this. I just let my mind wander, and pull elements in on a whim.

I thought about what it is to be struck by an inspirational muse... and how sometimes it bleeds an artist dry to unlock the emotion of creation. Not a bad thing, by any means.... just a very unique thing that can leave an artist physically and emotionally drained afterward. So I hope this piece conjures up a bit of that.

:omg: Aimee, some reason, when I see this it feels like a chasm of changing colors when looking, I don't know why or how it is.. but I guess when scrolling up real fast, it can create some kind of unusual outburst cool effect..

:thumbsup:

btw.. nice new site lay out so far, looking good :)
