“Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure nor this thing nor that but simply growth. We are happy when we are growing.”
– William Butler Yeats
Little Collage for Mary – 4″ x 6″ Postcard
This is another collage from an inexperienced collager. The shoe is from a watercolor painting I did for a WetCanvas WDE (weekend drawing event), so Mary will probably recognize it. This little card will be winging it’s way to Ohio.
About William Butler Yeats
Irish author William Butler Yeats, known for his mysticism and Celtic imagery, won a Nobel Prize for his plays but ultimately achieved more renown as a poet. He was born in Dublin on June 13, 1865. Co-founder of the Abbey Theater, he served as its resident playwright and worked with actress Maude Gonne, who inspired the romantic longing expressed in many poems. He married at age 52 and co-wrote A Vision with his wife, a book with occult roots that explores the mythology in his poetry. He died on January 28, 1939.
