the unexpected

what we might find today by annton beate schmidt

Sometimes we will follow a path, we have been walking many, many times before. All known, familiar and maybe, even a bit boring. And suddenly something new pops up, a simple detail maybe, changing the complete outlook on the path. Once we have changed the perspective, it might even happen, everything changes. Bit by bit. And it also might come as a shock, quite frightening. I still believe it is always worth the peek.


The Unexpected is the theme of this week's drawing challenge, which is hosted by Joke Konings. Feel very welcome, to visit her Blog and find the links to the other participants over there too.

And thank you, Joke for inviting me.

  6. Just imagine meeting the unexpected on a walk in the woods! I love the feeling of the woman peaking through her fingers. I often do that while watching movies. Do you? xo

  7. The unexpected as a new beginning. I'm a big fan of that and I love to walk outside the lines. Great drawing, lot of different lines and structures and who's that man in the picture? She shows me a little bit of her world. Beautiful. Thank you.

    1. thank you so much Joke. the man in the picture, he is more a symbol than an existing person. the idea of something new, while being in thoughts. an image in an unexpected place.
