A Savage Place


I've been working on this for ages, it seems. I'm still not sure if the blue in the center is right...

I just realized that I've used "savage" twice in as many weeks. I guess it's my new favorite word, along with "fierce." Wonder what that means?

ooh, I like the blue - it works with the white specs - makes me think of cold and ice...( which doesn't, I guess, necessarily work with the arab on the camel = desert, huh?)...but "savage" and "fierce" - like that - willingness to stand up and be heard.

oo, i like this a lot. the blue looks good to me, almost as if we were poking through the firey colors of sunset to see the starry night sky.
