Abandoned Art #3 – Just be

If you live in the UK you won’t need me to tell you it has been raining. A lot. A serious lot. And it feels like it has been raining forever. If you don’t live in the UK then a) you’re probably not that interested and/or b) you’ll be thinking “doesn’t it always?” Personally, I don’t mind the rain, it can be sort of cosy.

Today’s piece, purely by chance, reflects the wet weather and is a departure from the bees theme (they will be back!) although I did sneak them, sort of, into the title. You’ll also notice I couldn’t leave out the dots thing I’ve got going on at the moment.  The whole thing just evolved – a few distress stains and inks and a stamp all courtesy of the legend that is Tim Holtz.

I have created a back story for this – the man is waiting for his wife. He is either smiling, because he’s just caught sight of her through the rain or he’s a little melancholy because, sadly, he knows he’s waiting in vain. You decide!

Waiting in the rain
