Illustration Friday Topic - Train

Whew! What a long week! I caught a cold and then gave it to every member of my family (I'm nice like that). But painting still is my happy place so I worked on this illustration for small bits of time whenever I felt up to it and finally finished it. It's a little different for me. I usually pick a subject I can get done quickly. (No, really, people. I have three children and a paying job!) The Illustration Friday topic this week was Train and I found this picture and it just inspired me. I wanted so much to know the story behind it. Is she waiting for someone special to arrive? She doesn't have luggage but maybe she's leaving quickly and only had time to grab her purse. I love how a whole story can be in one little painting.
