Journal sketch - Hope

This is a sketch from my journal which I am going to call Hope, which I will post again when it is finished.

While I was on the bus going home from work the other day, I overheard one lady talking to her friend. She said "I'm too old at 63 to learn anything new". I must admit I was really saddened by this. I am of that age and still relish new challenges and learning new skills, as I know other ladies of a similar age out there in our art world do. I think, though, that there are probably a lot of people  who say the same thing.  It is very sad.

  1. You're right. It is sad. I'm 67 yrs old and I'm still learning things every day. In fact, I don't have enough hours in the day to try all the things I learn about! How sad to feel so hopeless. I hope I never feel that way.

    Your sketch is lovely.
