Might




Here's my offering for Illustration Friday, inspired by a poem my Dad quotes to me (tho I think the actual quote is from a different poem...)

Mr. Meant-To had a comrade, and his name was Didn't Do
Have you ever chanced to meet them?
Have they ever called on you?

These two fellows live together
In the house of Never-Win
And it's said that it is haunted
By the ghost of Might-Have-Been.

Wow Karen! I love this. The background really brings out the illustration of the old woman. I really enjoy your work. Have browsed your website as well and I must say that you are very talented. Thanks for the comment in my blog. I really appreciate children who show interest in Art. In fact, I'm encouraging my 3 year old son to paint! Will post his 'abstract' oil painting soon in my blog. Hope Katie will post hers soon!

Wow! That woman looks like she's pretty haunted by Might-Have-Been, too. Great illo!
