I like this new painting! The woman is looking forward to the future.
She is determined to create a life of her own choosing - forging a path through a sometimes confusing and seemingly chaotic universe.
She's not delusional - experience has taught her it won't all be Rainbows and Unicorns!
Still, she looks forward to the challenges that lay ahead; wishing for strength and courage against the darkness; humility and grace in the golden glow of good fortune.
To all who have wished me well upon my journey, I am so thankful for your friendship and good wishes. It makes all the difference in the world! I hope that I can do the same for you, should you be in need.
* I entered this painting in the weekly challenge over at Illustration Friday. It seemed to fit the topic for the week, which was "Forward".
