Ripples

The face in the water looks up,
and she shakes her head as if to say
that it's the last time you'll look like today.


I did say I might do this again...some songs were just made to be illustrated this is one of them.
One of my all time favourites, I can listen to this track all day.  Ripples comes from the Genesis album 'Trick of the Tail'  released such a looong time ago, and  the first time I heard Genesis on my little orange transistor.
Some  friends of mine might even remember me painting the album cover on the back of waistcoats when I was 16!
See here for the other Genesis/Phil Collins lyrics I've illustrated.

I love the Lady of Shallot type of mystical look---and do not know the song but will look it up...such wisdom in those words---wonderful colors and an exciting page--I'd love to make a book of just such things as illustrated song titiles or be in a group where we take just one song a month and do a page for it---can you imgine how wonderful it would be to see the 'exhibit' of them?
