IF: Match

Not much I can add here.  I didn’t find the topic generated a lot of interest with me so I thought I’d just keep it simple.  Check out the multitude of other enteries at Illustration Friday, if you haven’t already.

    What a clever analogy, Paula. A love so strong that you feel consumed by fire…burning with feelings and emotions of the best sort. I’ve been fortunate enough to have experienced this in my lifetime, and there’s nothing better! I can relate. Your depiction of the pair in love is very nicely done. The eyes speak volumes.
    Keep ‘em coming.

    Merci, salem & Michael! Michael–If the flame’s any indication of the length of this relationship, all my matches burn out fast. Too bad.

    DA: Thanks! True. Eyes can say so much!

    monica: You’re very kind. : )

    SP: Think so? I wasn’t thinking much when I did it, so glad it’s likeable. Appreciate all your comments!
