Flying Girl Draws Close and Looks in the Window, or Vacancy
Golden Fluid Acrylic
This is a departure. A close up of Flying Girl. How odd. I don't know why she came so close, instead of staying in her usual horizontal landscape distance. I had been thinking about Illustration Friday and their prompt of Vacant, in fact I even drew a sketch of a landscape FG, but it was off and I turned the page and imagined the reflection of a window in her eyes and then she was there.
Maybe also it was different because I was watching the election results at the same time and my nervous energy was a strange state.
Maybe this really is a different world we are about to enter.
Maybe there are open spaces for those of us who couldn't quite find the way in before.
Maybe it will be a more welcoming world from now on.
Maybe this is the beginning of being able to see a country where some of us can now feel more at home.
There is, finally, room at this inn for all of us.
