Illustration Friday: Ghost & Clear

Copyright Ratlion
On a clear moonlit night, the clear/translucent butler clears the remnants of a cozy picnic dinner for two while the (equally clear/translucent) lord and his lady take a romantic stroll under the star-studded sky.
:D :D :D
PS: This illo also doubles up as my belated entry for 'Ghost'.
Update: Here's Dogcrab's text/take on the illustration.
Dear Discerning and Deceased Ladies and Gentlemen,
Now that you have time on your hands, why not spend a little eternity or two at Les Trois Hommes Décapités, an exclusive resort for the aristocratically inhumed.
As members of a growing class of deceased who are increasingly dissatisfied with mundane non-existences, wouldn’t you consider all-attic accommodation with attached ball-and-chain in all rooms, sweeping views over ever-changing landscapes, and a supply of the best spirits possible – and we intend no pun here!
Our legendary establishment has served the upper crust of ectoplasm for centuries – including the entire Romanov and Bourbon clans.

Our other facilities include a 24-hour butler, moonlit picnics on our vast and exclusively haunted grounds, and a guaranteed shortage of holy relics and ghost-hunters, along with the latest in séance-protection.As part of our hospitality services, we offer walkers for dead pets (though, regrettably, poltergeists are not allowed), Spook-a-day playhouses for children and daily haunting tours for your entertainment.

Do visit us for the experience of your afterlife!

The Manager, Les Trois Hommes Décapités
Our motto: Always have great taste, even if you can’t taste anything

This is such a perfect combination of the two has a wonderfully romantic, ethereal feeling. I like how the trees echo the vertical shapes of the figures and the chair backs...everything seems to be rising like smokey spirits. Lovely:>
