Each night that the auroras gleamed in the sky, was reason enough for a grand celebration....

Artist's Notes: OH my computer hated me for making this piece. This baby's actual dimensions are 22x34 inches at 300dpi, with so many layers I lost count. At one point, I ran into the dreaded "You may not save this document, you do not have enough RAM!!!", and had to lose some progress I had made by restarting my computer. Ugh! But I finally made it through. One of these days I imagine the whole thing will blow up. lol The final size of this layered file is 1.52 GIGS. Geez.

LOL Thank you!! Oh it was misery for awhile. Plus I was working with a migraine. Bad girl, bad girl! Made the mistake of drinking some wine earlier in the day, and ignoring the fact that wine doesn't get along so well with me! So the computer survived, I survived... weee! LOL

Ugh -- migraine *and* technical difficulties? Double bravery points! ...Minus tsk-tsk points for bringing the monster headache on yourself, silly fox. Still, we've got this delightful image, so you're comin' out ahead. *thumbs up + grins*

Hmm... didn't quite see that emoticon coming. Let's says it's giving you the peace sign. ...Or offering you a professional barbershop haircut. One of those.
