The sea moon guardian



This is the last piece that I finished before my computer crashed. This is the not final version, that version is gone. I think it looked better than this but I have no memory of it. I guess that is the effect of losing things, you forget them after a time but you still wish to get them back somehow. In a way, I don't think any piece that I create is ever consider finished, so I'll probably redo this later on.

Is it enough to say the title of this piece is "The sea moon guardian" and not add anything else? Well, I do like adding a story to each piece but it's not written and I'm doubtful it will ever be but here's a bit that wrote for this:

Every one hundred years, a new guardian is chosen to guard the light of the sea, also known as the sea moon. The sea moon gives light to creatures that live at the bottom of the world but it also has healing powers that only a sea guardian can give. This year, Sealia, the 7th daughter of the 7th sea god, has been decreed as the 777th guardian of the sea moon. She is given the 'Book of Light' and the power to heal. In these days, she sleeps and dreams by the side of the sea moon and makes sure no harm comes to it.

  1. such a beautiful piece Lissa! I just love looking at it. Your words drew me in, i wish there were an entire book to go with that tale.

    you certainly could join DC this weekend, the theme is Aqua, link on my post, if you feel like it ask Veronica to add you. Seems many of the people have not posted yet, so you would not be late.

    sweet weekend to you.

  13. First of all, I'm so sorry to read about your computer crash Lissa, ouch...I hope you didn't lose to much of your beautiful work! Hopefully most was backed up on a separate drive?

    This latest work is amazing, as usual. You have such a gift. :-)



    Have a wonderful week, Geraldine

    1. I do have a backup on an external drive but I didn't backup my january files, so there's a whole month of work all gone. this seems to have every few years for me. I wished I had backup every day, then I might have lost so much.

      anyway, thanks for stopping by. hope you have a lovely day.
