While researching Dido, the mythological Queen of Carthage from the Aeneid, I remembered that Dido's Pheonician name is Elissa, this sent me into a flurry of emotion, thanks to the loss of a real person in my life named Elissa. So this is my release after several months of telling myself I was ok. I took Dido's suicide by sword on a flaming pyre, and turned it into my own renewal. It's funny, this is one of those pictures that when I created it, it held huge emotion and energy for me, now, that I've integrated it, it's just another picture. I hope you can feel the energy I felt when it first burst out of me. Done in Photoshop. The pictures are various QuickCam pictures, clipart, textures from TextureMill, and a picture I took on the Aran Islands.
