The Coming Year

11 x 7

As the year comes to an end you can expect all the year in review shows complete with predictions for the coming year. No predictions here from me. You don't want to know what I think is coming, trust me on that. As for what's past, if you've been keeping up you've already seen most of it, so just flip back on your own. I had thought about going back several years to let you decide if I'd shown any improvement, but due to a technical problem I can't get to any old files stored on my zip disks. So you dodged that bullet too.

One of the few files I can get to right now is this little watercolor. It struck me as a relatively good image to end up the year on. Is she watching something / someone go, or waiting for something / someone to come? Maybe she's had a really bad year and is getting ready to jump. What you take from a piece depends a lot on what you bring to it, doesn't it?

To my reader(s) I hope you're not getting ready to jump. I wish you all a good new year and remember the trick is to keep your head when those around you are losing theirs.

What a treat to find your blog (followed from artandartistry and your head study post) - I plan on coming back!
Happy New Year!

Thank you. I don't post as often as I should mainly because I just can't seem to get around to taking pictures of pictures, but you're always welcome.

This one seems like a very lonely piece. She looks lost and a million miles away. Maybe she's heart broken but it does look like she thinking about jumping to me.

I know just how she feels.

Been there enough times to know the looks myself, I'm going there again at the moment.
