Lady of the Mountain

I look to the sky, watching the clouds float by

Soft grass, nestled against my skin

My eye lids grow heavy, so I let them rest

Deeper and deeper, I drift away

I imagine that I'm sinking 

Deep into the earth

It feels so real

It's only a dream, I tell myself

The earth envelops me, swallows me whole

Time is infinite

Years pass like days

I awake 

The sky has darkened and a thick fog rolled in

The earth has grown around me

I've become one with the earth

I am the earth

I am

The Lady of the mountain

Stage 2

This is a composite of 17 different images to create one magical piece. I've had this idea for awhile now and I knew it was going to take a long time to put together, so I waited and waited, until I finally had the time to do it. I started with a shot of my face and added a few clouds and texture. Then I added the fun bits.


At stage two, I thought I might be done, but I decided to sleep on it. The next day, I looked at it again and it didn't feel quite done yet, so I looked for more images to add. This took a total of three days to complete. It was inspired by the song "Sorcerer" by Stevie Nicks. She's one of my favorite artists. Her music is so magical and mysterious. It almost makes me feel like anything is possible, much like this image. There are no limits to the imagination, therefore there are no limits to the possibilities.
