Found a brush that imitates the effect of salt in watercolors pretty well and might have use it a lot in this piece. The background was pretty plain anyway so it just added a bit of texture. ⁠


"The light of a single candle⁠
Flickers in the dark⁠
As the runny wax⁠
Overflows its pedestal.⁠
The flame will soon run out of fuel⁠
And vanish in a thin thread of smoke,⁠
But for now,⁠
Light and darkness dance⁠
And melt together,⁠
United by seams of dim warmth⁠
In a fugitive display of beauty⁠
That comes closer to its end⁠
With every second."⁠
