Elder People Love…

Watercolor by Niya Christine. 365 Paintings

#38/365 Paintings

You know what I think? The dog is a boy and both these fellas really, really love the beautiful woman in the sleeping bonnet. The dog watches over her… while her hubby inches closer and closer to her all night until she is almost off the bed. In the morning she says, “Harv… you did it again!” The dog kisses her face, she giggles while Harv snores on. She got used to the snoring years ago. It’s like the sea coaxing her to sleep every night now. Ah… they are so cute I want to adopt them.

    The textures of the comforter and the cool blue pillows make it look like they’re sleeping in a snowy mountain range. And when you’ve done the work of love and lasted long you sorta have grown and built something that solid. That’s what really moves me about this image — the sweetness of the faces nestled within all this natural strength.
