DAILY DEVIATION THANK YOU!
To all who have dropped by my DA page today and viewed this piece as well as maybe a few others. I can't tell you how honored I am.
I have been a member of DA for almost 10 years under this and one other account and I truly feel grateful to have finally achieved a Daily Deviation from you all!

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-07-12
The suggester said: There's something classic and poignant about the composition of this image. It is simple and I think that helps underscore its beauty. ShamanBear by *ElysianImagery ( Suggested by LiliWrites and Featured by Astralseed )

Amazing. The reason bears make good shamen is that few would dare to interrupt them.

They also have a way of gently leading and guiding us. For all their size they can be incredibly nuturing totems as well.
