Illustration Friday - ENVY

envy1thumb
Click on thumbnail for full image. I painted this in Open Canvas, altered a photo with Photoshop and pasted it in as a layer, and added the text with Photoshop. Total time: 20 minutes.
I have another idea that I might have time to submit.

Why is green associated with envy?


The link comes from the ancient Greeks who thought jealous feelings led to an overproduction of bile, giving the sufferer a pale, greenish hue.
