Illustration Friday: Worn -

"Worn"
digital collage by Mick Mather

“The hour of the waning of love has beset us,
And weary and worn are our sad souls now;
Let us part, ere the season of passion forget us,
With a kiss and a tear on thy drooping brow.”

- William Butler Yeats

"I've never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright
I've never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance..."

This is lovely!

Somehow this pic makes me feel sad, although I see also humor in this. But the first feeling was sadness.

Ut oh! I knew I was partaking of a little too much bourbon ... so, men were asking me to dance again? Did I accept? :O

Roxa:
Ahhh ... a new face peeking past the blinds. Glad you liked it, oh mysterious one. :)

SusuPetal:
I don't believe I had any intention one way or the other with this piece. As I look at it again, I agree that there's a bit of melancholy here.

:John:
Perhaps ... my vote goes to butterick though!

There's something about a dress like this that makes a man wish for ... a stiff breeze! :D
