My starry night over the beach at Tybee Island near Savannah is literally the stuff of dreams. I awoke in the middle of the night with this image as fresh as could be in my mind. It was as if I had just looked out the window and seen the moon reflecting in the sea with my own eyes. I honestly don’t remember every waking up so absolutely clear as I was that night.
Going back to sleep was simply not an option. I was absolutely awake and suddenly on a mission. So in the dead of the night, I began working on my own little starry night artwork. This image is based off one of my own photos from the beach at Tybee Island, on my brief visit there a few years ago.
Some hours later, I sat back and looked at the results of my labors and it was virtually spot on the way I had seen it in my minds eye. From the moon hanging in the dark sky to the pier at Tybee leading out into the night waters of the Atlantic Ocean. It was as if I had photocopied that dream and made it real. I don’t recall ever having so absolutely captured the way I originally saw something never mind being so completely satisfied with the result.
I can still look at this starry night on Tybee and feel… inner peace? A sense of zen perhaps? I’m not sure what to call it but it’s definitely a calming sensation.
And I hope it does the same for you whether you’ve walked the beach at Tybee, too, or whether fantastical scenes like this call your heart home.
