Hold True by Saimain Hold True by Saimain
Well, it seems Morgan and Nimri wanted to round out this year, as they have for the past three years running! Their relationship grows stronger and deeper with each passing year, and as ever, I strive to capture that. This piece took far longer to complete than I'd planned, but that's usually how it goes. XD Forgive any contrast issues--I can't seem to make it look right on any monitor.

This is my gift to the ever-awesome, enduring and brilliant ElvenSoul06 without whom this story and particularly this couple would not exist. :) Thanks for being a wonderful friend, Kelly, and sticking with me all these years! *many hugs*  You can learn more about Morgan and "The Wars of Avenan" storyline here: www.meadowhaven.net/wars-of-av…  

Have a wonderful New Year, everyone! :heart:
