'Tis the last rose of summer
Left blooming alone;
All her lovely companions
Are faded and gone ~ Thomas More
This week's Illustration Friday theme is FADED. While "Mildred" is vibrant in hue her old-fashioned appearance and outlook are as faded as the last rose of summer.Amedeo Modigliani's work. I remember seeing his long-necked, long-faced ladies a long time ago but didn't realize what a "nudie" painter he was so click on the link at your own risk!!
BTW - I asked my son, Connor (15), what he would name this lady and he said Doris or Mildred. I laughed at him but then looked online at the most popular names in the 1920's and Doris and Mildred were ranked 8th and 9th respectively. Go figure - that kid is smarter than he looks!
