Moody Monday: Irritable -

digital collage by Mick Mather
As I sat pondering this week's theme - irritable - at Moody Monday this was the first idea that came to mind. As I went surfing for shirts on hangers, up popped this wonderful old illustration from Edna Ferber's novel, "Personality Plus". The quote and the image were simply perfect! I added a rather contemporary-looking, faux advertisement featuring a sport shirt on a hanger and ... voila! Irritable personified. :D

Can you see the image now?

Yes, now I can see it. Is it due to my bright and shiny morning eyes or did you pull some magic:)

This challenge was so challenging, that I couldn't come up with anything. I believe the word was to abstract for a Finn.

But you succeeded. "Sullen, angry, young face". Yes, he looks like that, irritated. This collage is airy and light, maybe due to the colouring.

I'm certain your ability to view is due to your bright and shiny morning eyes. There was no magic here yesterday due to blogspot acting up. Evidently I could see the image but no one else could and I had to redo the entire post. Then things got worse ... don't ask.

Thanks with my usual blush for your last comment. I had to think for quite a while about how to connect the old and the new imagery with colors that could gently accomplish the task. Just as an aside, what I imply is happening here actually did happen to me. I put on a clean, dress shirt one sleepy morning with the hanger still in it! :D

LOL ... or, perhaps, too much brandy the night before. :)
