The northstar is an airplane, a guide, a light in the dark. Our destinies need not be tied to a fixed point in the sky. We can choose to follow our own path. This stunning work by Rolando Cyril speaks all of that and more to us. ( Featured by lolly )

Hey I love this work sooo much! I was wondering if you would mind if I used it as a basis for an oil painting project for school? (I don't want to infringe on your copyright or anything)

There is something about the lighting here that is very realistic, but of course there is a whimsical feel here too.

I do not remember when I first saw this picture, or how I found it. But it always stayed with me. Part of this rememberance comes from the title as much as the picture itself. :)

The picture touches me in a way I'll have to ponder for a few more years until I try to express it.

I had no clue this was for a band or anything before clicking on the discription but when i first saw it this is i had to write about it. this how i interpreted it:

She is the daughter of the earth hopless at birth, human in every capacity with only
one escape, she runs to the well where lights fall from the sky dangling their
refelection opening a haven of mystical truths.
When at midnight the waters speak and the atmosphere is still on the wings of a small airplaine.
Her eyes illuminate the stones her feet feel safe in the water she breathes the grass and the crystal trees beside her.
In the morning the wretched fence and dark forest keep a wonderful secret but at midnight the well is hers.
She smiles shes free just like the beautiful night that hides her.
