Waiting for that woman

He’s waited for what seems like his whole life for her. He just knows if they were together, it would be magic, paradise. They would sing, dance, have beautiful children, they’d own a beautiful car and a big house. But she’s not ready to settle down with him. So he just keeps waiting.

    Great painting! I bet he will never catch his girl – he needs to be moving, not waiting, for one like that!

    Such great colors in this painting – I enjoyed reading the story with it, but it makes me a little sad… I hope he finds happiness with or without her.

    nice story to go with your painting, it explains a lot!

    Great painting and a wonderful back story – I see him in a different light – before I think I would’ve thought he was a bit of a wide boy, chilling on the streets in the Bronx or somewhere waiting to get up to no good!

    I like the painting – and the story! Hope she decides to settle down soon; sounds like he won’t accept anyone else 🙂

    I don’t know exactly why but he reminds me of a sad clown. Great painting!
