Restrained by Zi-O

Currently unavailable for purchase

A beautiful young goddess watched from afar the fleshly temptations of being human—intrigued by their needs and desires she sought permission from the gods to live among the mortals. Caught in a vortex of human emotions, the dark and the light- she was soon corrupted by the power and taste of passion-unable to contain the human desires her appetite grew insatiable. To feed her needs she abused her powers using potions of magical dust to seduce and destroy. The gods received word that the goddess had crossed over to the moon’s dark side-in a sweeping motion it was unanimous she must be dealt with as quickly as possible. With invisible lariats of silver and gold they imprisoned her soul- the goddess was cast to the dark castle 12th of Never- where she is to dwell alone for eternity. Through the ages her only visitors are night creatures that fly through time on emerald wings. They come to her to taunt and remind her of what she once was and never shall be. Today she remains a beautiful vessel empty and alone-In this prison of stone.

I’m basically a self taught artist who has flirted with painting and drawing throughout my life, however, due to circumstances, until recently, I had to put that aspect of myself on the back burner.
Not long ago I discovered photo-manipulation which led to an interest in photography. And here I am today having a ball learning and enjoying the process of creating. And even though I strive to improve constantly; to me it’s about the journey not the destination.

    Weeeel there was a poem to go with it, that actually made more sense of the image, but then I decided the poem was a little lame so I removed it! Haaa I may add it….back! Thank you very much for the view and the comment! S
