SplitsCylVania Five: The Pipes Are Calling (UF0313) by 

Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer’s gone, and all the flowers are dying
‘Tis you, ’tis you must go and I must bide.
But come ye back when summer’s in the meadow
Or when the valley’s hushed and white with snow
‘Tis I’ll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.

And if you come, when all the flowers are dying
And I am dead, as dead I well may be
You’ll come and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an “Ave” there for me.

And I shall hear, tho’ soft you tread above me
And all my dreams will warm and sweeter be
If you’ll not fail to tell me that you love me
I’ll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.

I’ll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.

From ATF tut10 with Fx combining Separation and Ngon, with added lens flare and some sharpening in GIMP, and rendered in Ultra Fractal. Best if viewed larger.

The title was somewhat inspired by the movie theme (see youtube below) which was in turn a spoof of the Big Band era song Pennsylvania 6-5000.

    Awesome work of art. Gorgeous colors.

  • Thank you so much, Bunny!! Now that I’ve made some with bright colors, I may try something richer and darker, just as an artistic challenge. Happily just arrived safely back in NC after a great but somewhat tiring 15 day trip. Best, D
