moon tide by twosilverstars moon tide by twosilverstars
:bulletblue: prints available


To where I watch on the yellow sands,
and they pluck sweet music with sea-cold hands.

They bring me coral and amber clear.
But when the stars in heaven appear,

their music ceases, they glide away.
They swim for their grottos across the bay.

Then listen only to my shrill tune,
the surfy tide, and the wondering moon.

The sea maid
by Arthur Rackham

The glowing pearls provide a stark contrast against her dark hair. Makes it feel like old movie glamour. The skin is not dark nor light, yet the shade you get when you dump milk into your coffee. Like she's a Turkish princess! Maybe that is a bit far out...also love how her fin is shaped like a leaf, translucent, delicate and silver. It easily contains the fierce power that all creatures of the ocean posses. Excellent work!
