First, thanks to arctoa who was kind enough to suggest a deviation that he thought was worth sharing with the rest of you. To those who like the deviation, thank you for your praise.

But, seriously. Enough bashing. If you are pissed off and feel like bitching, I quite honestly do not want to hear it. Feel free to leave a comment elsewhere. I did not do anything in the way of causing this to become a DD and the fact that you are upset about it does not concern me.

As some people have mentioned, there are plenty of other pieces in my gallery, and while this one is probably not something I would have chosen, myself, to be featured, someone else did find it good enough to receive more attention.

Obviously I did submit this with a little forethought, or it would not have ended up here. If you cannot see it for what it is, at the very least, then there's no reason for you to worry about it further. Open up your mind a little, and think about art in new ways. Or move on.

It shouldn't have to come down to the artist telling people to stop being so rude. Seriously. Grow up.

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-12-10
Witness by ~ra1nb0w13 is a subtly powerful abstraction that, despite the delicate beauty of composition, is tinged with mystery and shadow thanks to the attentive choice of title. ( Featured by arctoa )

Good comment :clap:
I think it's really thoughtful, people just need to slow down and take time to think about the deviation, how it relates to the title, etc, not just say blah blah it's a blur I could do it.

I am reminded of sleeping in the backseat of a car as a passenger while traveling someplace. This makes me think of waking up, but not all the way, vision is blurred by remnants of sleep as well as the speed of travel.

I relate this to some lyrics by R.E.M. " Here's a scene, you're in the backseat layin' down, The windows wrap around to sound of the travel and the engine, all you hear is time stand still in travel And feel such peace and absolute the stillness still that doesn't end but slowly drifts into sleep....."

I can't see what it is at all - that's why I love it :) there's beauty in the not knowing, and the air of mystery surrounding this, the fact that we don't actually know what the object is, is what makes it pretty awesome. :heart:

Having come back to this several times looking at the DDs yesterday I have to say, I think its effortlessly beautiful. Theres a serenity to it that doesn't really need explanation. Nuff said :)
Congrats on the DD!
