Tell a Story

"Waiting" oils, 18 x 24. A paintings which tells a story can draw you, the viewer, into it in a special, unique way. I intentionally made the background very plain so as not to give you any clues about the place. Who is this little girl? What, or who, is she waiting for?

You are the child, and this painting is your story. Who, or what, are you waiting for? What is the light outside for you? Is the door locked? Is someone coming? Are you hesitating to open it and go out? I'd love to hear your story and how you responded to this painting. I'll post some of your responses.
