Roaming Skies by AnnMarieBone Roaming Skies by AnnMarieBone
Elephants
by ~speciesofone

First there was magic.
And when we ripped the universe apart
strand by strand
the flesh folds of sky told
nothing but old
fabric lies.
And with or without or within
the blue torn strips of life and dust spoke gently,
leaving elephants to roam the skies.



Acrylic on Deep Edge Canvas 36x16 inches

I was trying to paint my version of a whole day with this image, night, sunrise, day and sunset. When I woke up this morning, I had the idea of putting elephants into it!

On searching dA, I came across the above poem by [link] and really loved it and thought it suited the painting well.

Thank you in advance, for comments and people kind enough to add this to their collections and especially to my great Watchers!

I really love how you made the transition from night into day. The moon is my favorite celestial object and it looks belong amazing in this picture and I love the little specks of white for stars. The piece of writing that goes with it is also very mystical and magical. Great work!

amazing artwork and stunning use of colours. I'm in awe of your paintings but also a little bit depressed because it makes me feel such a poor artist! :)

I won't be able to buy for a bit because with Christmas coming up sneakily fast and I have surgery the week after next so I'm off work and on lower money but I will buy it once I'm able!
