The silver lining by amie689 The silver lining by amie689
the clouds and the silver lining....

Thankful for the darkness, that makes me appreciate the light,
Thankful for the light, that gives me strength in darkness..
Nothing of this world is constant,
Everything ... comes back to YOU..

Thank you for favoriting our Japanese "kanzashi" hair ornament :)
Insofar as which of your art you should submit, I love this - The Silver Lining. I especially enjoy your accompanying poem. So true!

I showed this painting to three friends and all of them focused on the stormy clouds :(.. when the overwhelming feeling for me was gladness for the light...

how very poignant. And ironic too as it looks like the gull's headed for a storm over yonder.

does look that way doesn't it...? :D

Actually the gull is just playing with the wind...

This was a referenced from a low resolution shot I had of sunset in Alexandria, Egypt...

It's winter and its constantly raining with gale force winds..

It is a place that defies description...

The pyramids, the people, the wealth of history from all those civilisations.. street art from graffiti in Cairo to frescos and mosaic murals in Alexandria, biblical, Quranic sites, religious monuments living used and steeped in time...

.. and the people.. and the riots.. and the rubbish.. the cats, the donkey and horse carts, and traffic jams..

its chaotic, beautiful, old and enigmatic... caught in time warp and struggling to regain its future...

The sky and desert in Cairo... the clouds and the sea in Alexandria..

most likely be going again next year.. my daughters there in Cairo.. will be in the next 6 years, God willing...

Wow I so believe you. Very rich culture indeed! My best friend got to go last year. *sigh* I just can't afford travel at the moment. But Egypt is definitely in my wishlist. Someday, God-willing. :)
