Helios the artist.



Do you think the sun is sometimes just showing off? I mean, come on, could you burn a hole in the sky all day long and then paint a subtle, intriquing and delicately highlighted sundown at the end of the day.

I didn't think so.
It's like old Sol just wants to show that he has a creative side to. So with a lot of artistic showmanship, he tones down his palette with gold tones, coppers, baked-orange hues (maybe a hint of burn orange), heat-blackened clouds, and charcoal-scorched earths.
In the middle of all that, he pushes his round body down on the edge of the earth -- just to show off his size.
Then Helios will rest, till he again wakes up his steeds and comes blazing forth in the morning. "Dawn is a feeling."
