self-pityingly or tearfully sentimental, often through drunkenness : the drink made her maudlin | a maudlin ballad.
I must admit I thought I knew the meaning of this word, but I did not. I was thinking it meant something more like macabre, dark or sinister, so it's good to learn the correct meaning. It wasn't an easy word to illustrate, but I decided to go digitally this week and recycle a digital artwork I did a while back.
I love this stone angel, maudlin as she is. She is located at the historic Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta.
