I am a champion People watcher. I get it from my grandmother. I remember as a child sitting with her on the porch and listening to her try to figure out the stories of the people who passed by. Everyone has a story. Where are they going? Who might they be going to see? What are they carrying? She would try to guess about the story. I do the same thing. In fact sometimes I have to remind myself that I am not invisible....I can't just sit and stare and let my mind wander!
Yesterday's post about adding figures to my paintings resulted in an interesting comment. One of my readers noted that the figures in the paintings add some mystery...they are a moment frozen in time and she wonders about their story. I love that idea.
Now I will look at these little paintings...these moments frozen in time and wonder about the people in them. Where are they going? What are they thinking about? What is their story? And the most wonderful thing about it is that there is no one 'real' story. We can all write our own.
