Artist's Description

Driving and listening to some music, the line that is the title to this image struck me as never before and this picture popped into my head almost as is seen here.

Six and a half years ago I was lying on a bed in Florida, sharing headphones with my wife-to-be, Autumn, while listening to this song. It was then I knew I would spend the rest of my life with her. Six months later I was listening to this song, driving home from work, where I would be greeted by an empty house and a cold bed, as my wife was 4000 miles away, waiting to see if we would be able to spend the rest of our lives together. I crashed the car with tears in my eyes. One month after that, I was sitting at home, listening to this song with my wife beside me, our future laid out before us. We haven’t been apart since.

The whole consists of 3 seperate pics, one of Becky, one of Dan and two of a skyscape (added and then flipped and added again to make it bigger. I just used the healing tool to create less of a mirror image feeling to it), blended and erased in different levels, then flattened, duplicated and converted to black and white and given an extreme version of the rough pastels treatment, known to some on here as the Leader Method. Extreme because only Dan’s face still has that filter effect on it. Flattened again and there you have it. All done in PS7.

The song, by the way, that inspired this piece is Neverland by Marillion, probably, in my opinion, the best band in the world.

Neverland by Marillion

When the darkness takes me over
Face down, emptier than zero
Invisible you come to me
..quietly
Stay beside me
Whisper to me “Here I am”
And the loneliness fades

Some people think I’m somethin’
Well you gave me that, I know
But I always feel like nothing
When I’m in the dark alone

You provide the soul, the spark that drives me on
Makes me something more than flesh and bone

At times like these
Any fool can see
Any fool can see
Your love inside me

All these years
Truth In front of my eyes
While I denied
What my heart knows was right

At times like these
Any fool can see
Any fool can see
Your love inside me

I want to be someone
I want to be someone
I want to be someone
Who someone would want to be
Someone would want to be

Wendy
Darling
In the kitchen
With your dreams

Will you fly
again
Take to the sky
again

Undo the hooks
Once and for all
Banish the tic tic tic tok tok tok
Again

Will you be
Yourself for me
Cause I can take it
I can stand
Anything

When you’re with me
I can stand it
I can stand

But when you’re gone
I never land
In Neverland

Want to be someone someone would want to be
someone someone would want to be
someone someone would want to be
someone someone someone someone

Any fool
Any fool can see
Any fool can see
Your love
Inside me
