That's the theme at Gothic Arches this week. As soon as I read the theme proposed by hostess Nancy Dooren, a song immediately came into my head. I knew I had to feature the song, "The Last Rose of Summer."
As I created this arch, I realized I have used this woman's image many times in my art. There is something about her face that I just love. She looks so sweet and kind, beautiful without being glamorous. I suppose I should retire her so all my work doesn't look the same. Well, maybe I'll just give her a vacation!
Take a moment to hear Celtic Women sing this lovely old Irish air on YouTube. It's well worth the time, and if you're like me, it may bring on a few tears, but the good kind.
