HOPEFUL HORIZON



In my sketchbook.  
Graphite.  
A distant horizon over black water.


Hopeful Horizon








A cropped version, showing the skyline a little better with greys and whites to indicate a passing storm, perhaps.










Hope is not always the "thing with wings" which Emily Dickinson described.  Sometimes it can be a vast amount of dark water, but the promise of a lighter horizon.  All we have to do to attain the bright promise is keep sailing towards it.

Perfect words for me today, Rhonda. Love that you were able to maintain such an even distribution of graphite here.

Hope never spreads her golden wings but on unfathomable seas.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
Kind regards, Sadami

Thanks, Deb, Sherry, Lisa, Sadami (such pretty words!), and Debbie. The graphite (5B) just went on smoothly in the stetchbook, Sherry - must be good paper.
