Very cool. It has that spacey feeling just like the song. Ethereal...

Oohhhhhhhs and Aahhhhhhhhs! Stunning work! Love the sense of the moon rising over the ocean, the hint of Aurora Borealis there to the left in the sky, and the absolutely fantastic ocean depths!
Hope your Christmas was wonderful, and that the new year brings only good things your way.

A fascinating and nicely balanced composition with a great title, and of course, you could turn it upside down and that would work just as well for maybe a totally different civilization... or maybe they change over every thousand years. Wonderfully dual purpose and therefore twice as interesting.

the piece really takes on a special meaning when we see your title: It's like a vast city underneath the waters, which we only see via the rippling reflections of the sea. You even have whispers of it in the "second" tier, behind the first huge bits of city in the foreground. Above it, a sky with hints of lights and pathways (maybe stars)...and a setting winter sun, diffuse, a bit bluish and pinkish (as winter setting suns get) and reflected nicely in the water, with a pink line across the horizon. I sense that this 'underwater-scape' is presently empty of people, but it feels more like they're simply not out for us, but that they're there all the same. Maybe we're looking at a moment of preparation, or a moment after...new years always has a sense, the 'actual' moment being such a crazy time, it's almost worth not painting (lol). And then, from Craig's remark, maybe this is the inner structure of the ocean itself! Craig, being a scientist, may dream of seeing these inner structures visualized so vividly. Maybe this is the 'molecular structure' of the seas. In any case, it's nice that we get hints of something intense down there, because your light intensifies towards the bottom. A primal pre-year image, things to come but not yet unfolded, with a quiet about it, pre holiday, post holiday, just still and very quiet...
