Quiet goodbye

No bling. No quinacridone fanfare signalling the end of the day. 

A quiet goodbye, a door shut but not latched. A whisper and an ending with edges fuzzed and a light fading like the slowest dimmer switch.

There's something so bittersweet about a father's fading memory. It makes us daughters feel like mothers.

Great verbal descriptors and visual values.

Such beauty with simplified shapes and subtle colors.
What an accurate description from SamArtDog, "daughters feel like mothers".

Katherine van Schoonhoven said...

Thank you, Casey.

Sam -- well said. I liked the daughter feeling better.

Pam -- thanks. Words and images still don't wrap themselves fully around the feelings.

Suzanne -- thank you.
