Oh blue, deep, piercing blue,
My feet cemented to this red rust earth
Yearn to break and flee into your depths.
Envelop my body, my mind,
Cast away the nightmares of this
World of false conquest.
My feet burn from the poisoned earth
My lungs choke from death they pump out
My eyes tear from their blindness.
Beauty is not a developed land
But a world where there is no sharp line
Between Earth and Sky.


Inspired by a lot of things. One being the deep, mind-numbing blue of the desert sky. I'm not particularly fond of deserts, but they have some of the most stunning skies. Another was a song I recently heard called "Spirit of the Hawk" by a Swedish group called Rednex.

Watercolor on illustration board. 8.5X11 inches

Yeee, I just had to paint something like this after seeing the video. It was partially the eagle dancer and the striking blue of the sky and the orange of the earth that made me go, "I haven't done desert in a while...no wait...ever." It was fun. :D
