Though possessed by the Dark Lord in the form of the spellstone, Enlil still hasd that benevolent spirit in her that endeared her to her people during the war. She took the girls in, gave them food and shelter, and taught them how to read and write. She hand picked only those who were orphaned, as a result of the war. The hardships continued, the Empire's army continued to plunder the land despite the promises given her by the Evil One. The people were hungry, confused, angry and had nowhere to turn to.
One evening, after a battle at sea that sank the last of the Empire's warships, Enlil asked the girls to join her at the beach, to ask of the Dark Lord one final favour to relief them of this suffering.
The Lord responded in great fury, but fortunately Enlil still possessed some of her magical powers to prevent them from being engulfed by the rolling waves.
Thereafter, Enlil realised that she had been misled to cause even more misery to the people.

zomg, really sorry to have used your photograpghy section collection! i completely overlooked the fact that you have another acct for stock!! Very kind of you to let this one pass and thanks for the fav - promise it won't happen again
Wow expansive piece of work Des!! I always love the way you capture light in the waves adds such a ghostly depth to your work!! this piece has the dramatic influence of " Ivan Aivazovsky" a fab sescape painter and that of the pre- ralphalite romanticism with how you depict the models excellnet work!!
Thanks, Phil! I'm not trained in art history or literature, but I can see where many contemporary artists draw their inspiration from! Certainly easier now to transfer classical work to digital canvas!
I am fascinated again of your romantic and of colorintensivly representation the force of the sea. The grace of the sea girls is such a strong contrast to the dramatic scene of the havaryted by sea. The old myth of the siren and the destroying Seanixes became the picture. The Anatomoie and drawing of the girls is very beautiful. And the glass of the water in its transparency succeeds you wonderfully. Wonderful work in a good classic manier,my friend Desmond.
Thanks for your kind interest in my work, Suzzanne! Let me know the name, please! I'm crazy with seascapes right now , and they're many classical paintings with dramatic storm scenes, that could easily surpass those Hollywood blockbusters.
