Kindred by colt51 Kindred by colt51
The beauty of the trees, the softness of the air,
the fragrance of the grass speaks to me.
The summit of the mountain, the thunder of the sky,
The rhythm of the sea, speaks to me.
The faintness of the stars, the freshness of the morning,
the dewdrop on the flower, speaks to me.
The strength of the fire, the taste of salmon, the trail of the sun,
and the life that never goes away, they speak to me
And my heart soars.


Chief Dan George-Chief of the Salish Band [link]

I love the birds of prey, and that piece of stock jumped off the screen at me. I had to work with it, or never sleep again.

Devyathe Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2008
yeah, youre right... $15,- for a 11x14 print isn't all too bad....

but i dont really agree on the low profit artists make on it themselves :P
id rather print the pic at my own store for 5 dollars and give the remaining 10 to you ;)



but hey.. im considering anyway :)

Well, I never expected to make so much as a dime. I just do this because I love being able to create something that somebody may find pleasing. If you want it in your home, on your wall, that is such an honor for me. If it brings you happiness, that brings me joy.
