Saving Grace by Silverbirch Saving Grace by Silverbirch
Oh telescope,
Keep an eye on my only hope,
Lest I blink and get swept off the narrow road,
Hercules, you've got nothing to say to me,
'Cause you're not the blinding light that I need.

For He is the saving grace of the galaxies
He is the saving grace of the galaxies

Dear God, I was terribly lost
When the galaxies crossed
And the sun went dark
But dear God, You're the only North Star
I would follow this far!

Galaxies; Owl City

I've always wanted to design CD covers o3o
I know the song mentions God, but I'm not religious, so I interpret it as more of a guardian/protector image.

Love the shimmering fish and the protecting hands and the quote that you give with it adds some light to the picture.  Saw it on facebook through deviant art :+fav:

I do love those hands....I'm sorry, I'm just in a very arty mood (have been since two days ago XD) So I'm looking closely at your work (and some other peoples) to see if I can pick up tips and help improve my work! Also, your just awesome at digital painting.

FisheyFISHHSIF ohoho. This would make an awesome CD cover design! 0.0 Though I'm not really a fan of the colour of the water.....but that's just me, I like brighter colours.
