Here’s the finished version of the sketch I posted two days ago

I added color, hoping this will carry the eye about the piece more so that the different components pull together and tell a story.

The eyes open the window to the soul…

They also comprehend and mis-apprehend…

One look into a person’s eyes can reveal a lifetime of emotion, experience, revelation, and connection.

Hope (that’s her in the upper left corner…), even the tiniest hope, can light(en)  fresh buds to spring from amidst the wilted refuse of exhausted promise…

(techie note… this is my first – completed – piece with digital watercolor. the ink-work was done by hand with a fountain pen. i think i’m hooked…)
