Here, it is eternal spring by MoonsongWolf Here, it is eternal spring by MoonsongWolf
A photo manipulation gift for ~Scealai-Storyteller, who lost her feline companion Jamara recently.



Wherever you are, I hope it is eternal spring.

Generally I prefer to use my own photos for my manipulations, but I didn't really have anything in my archives that felt appropriate for the image that I had in my head.

Rocks and water: [link] by ~maerocks

Jamara belongs to ~Scealai-Storyteller
Artwork is *MoonsongWolf

I've had the same thing happen to my cat. Oddly enough tho my cat was a calico as well.

Yeah, I have lost a few cat friends (and many, many rat friends) over the years. It is always a sad experience. I hope that you will have many, many more years with your cat. :)

MoonsongWolf Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2012
It's a photo manipulation. I assembled the photo portions in Adobe photoshop and then repainted sections to make all of the little pieces fit together, and to give it more of the feel of a traditional painting. :)

Thank you. It's getting better. It's a little odd since I don't have a cat right now, and am not planning on seriously looking until after the holidays. But, yeah, it's getting better. Thank you again for your kind gesture.

Nice drawing :). Right now it's feeling more like eternal winter for me, lol. We're defiantly getting snow sometime soon, though. :XD:

I know the feeling! It is getting pretty cold here in Ontario, Canada, too. And it will probably stay that way until late March. Luckily for me, though, I love the winter. ;)

This brought tears to my eyes immediately. I lost my 17 1/2 year old boy, Bagheera over a year ago and it still hurts. Maybe not quite as bad as it did right after, but wow, it still hurts. This is beautiful and moving. A wonderful gesture for a friend.

I'm sorry to hear that you lost your friend! I know it can be difficult to think about, even when time has passed. I still get tears in my eyes when I talk about friends and family (both animal and human!) that I have lost. Bagheera was quite old for a cat. He must have had a happy, healthy life. :)

I am sorry for her loss, it is so painful to lose a companion. I love the peaceful setting and soft colors. I hope your work brings her some comfort.
