The Northern Lights by Spikylein The Northern Lights by Spikylein
for this oilpainting i was inspired by the song "still standing" from the rasmus, which is my favorite band^^
i wish i could see northern lights in reality, but in here in germany there's no chance unfortunatelly T.T
the painting is A3 and with traditional oilcolors...

You are now cursed. You must send this on or you will be killed. Tonight at 12:00am, by Bloody Mary. This is no joke. So don't think you can quickly get out of it and delete it now because Bloody Mary will come to you if you do not send this on. She will slit your throat and your wrists and pull your eyeballs out with a fork. And then hang your dead corpse in your bedroom cupboard or put you under your bed. What's your parents going to do when they find you dead? Won't be funny then, will it? Don't think this is a fake and it's all put on to scare you because your wrong, so very wrong. Want to hear of some of the sad, sad people who lost their lives or have been seriously hurt by this email?

Annalise [Surname Removed] :She got this email. Rubbish she thought. She deleted it. And now, Annalise dead.

Louise [Surname Removed]: She sent this to only 4 people and when she woke up in the morning her wrists had deep lacerations on each. Luckily there was no pain felt, though she is scarred for life.

Thomas [Surname Removed]: He sent this to 5 people. Big mistake. The night Thomas was lying in his bed watching T.V. The clock shows '12:01am'. The T.V misteriously flickered off and Thomas's bedroom lamp flashed on and off several times. It went pitch black, Thomas looked to the left of him and there she was, Bloody Mary standing in white rags. Blood everywhere with a knife in her hand then disappeared. The biggest fright of Thomas's life.

Warning... NEVER look in a mirror and repeat -'Bloody Mary.Bloody Mary.' Bloody Mary... I KILLED YOUR SON' Is it the end for you tonight! YOU ARE NOW CURSED

We strongly advise you to send this email on. It is seriously NO JOKE. We don't want to see another life wasted. ITS YOUR CHOICE... WANNA DIE TONIGHT? If you send this email to...

NO PEOPLE - You're going to die.

1-5 PEOPLE - You're going to either get hurt or get the biggest fright of your life.

5-15 PEOPLE - You will bring your family bad luck and someone close to you will die.

15 -25 OR MORE PEOPLE - You are safe from Bloody Mary
(Sorry I had to send this, really really really sorry!!!)

 Do you mind if I use it for a background for horse art I'm doing on Horse Eden Eventing, still with your credits of course? If not that's fine ^-^ It's an amazing oil painting by the way :)

I love this picture. It looks so real and i love the colors! I would really like to try to paint with oil paints, but they are so expensive. Your picture is really awesome keep up the good work. :)

smsilverwolf Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2009
i like that u did the lights in arcs, reminds me of the moon or something. it adds to the total effect nicely, like it's hanging/being draped in the sky. <3

Kiwi-Chan-xx Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2009
You know, scientists believe the northern lights to acctually be a living creature. Not thinking, but some sort of organism that´s..alive. It´d been spotted following people:O My best friend told me^^
