I have always loved pictures that tell a story, and I love symbolism. This week’s Illustration Friday theme is ‘early’, it took me a while to think of something I wanted to draw but soon this little song started to float around my head.
Early one morning, just as the sun was rising
I heard a maid sing in the valley below
"Oh don't deceive me, Oh never leave me,
How could you use, a poor maiden so?"
So I have added a few little bits of symbolism to the poor girls tale, the weeping willow and the snake of deception.
