Illustration Friday - Song

Song II

Basically this is a song (aria) from an Opera. An Opera never written - but what I imagined when I drew this.

The story is about a village plaqued by a vengeful deity - Let's call her 'Phoebe'.
And as the villagers want, hope and dream for a better life they dare not speak of good fortune or think that they deserve good fortune for as soon as they do Phoebe swiftly appears carrying with her a black cloud of destruction.

Now, most Operas end badly but in this case I think the ending is good. I cannot tell you how the story ends - this is something you must ponder.

PS. I came up with the name Phoebe because it is very similar to the latin word phobia - 'to fear'
