    Lovely Pat, I like the SC. I like to think she still may have a colourful life, who knows :))

  • Thanks Maree,appreciate the fav. She seemed happy, she had a male friend who brought her hot coffee and kept her company.It was a very cold day. I did the SC to emphasise on the bright and cheerful drawing which makes me think that she might be down and out but she still see in colours. Not all of us can see colours if you know what I mean.

    You leave me speechless. Too touching for words.

  • I seem to see a lot of people like her around town nowadays. It is confronting! I think she must be about 60+ It is freezing cold to be sitting on concrete all day. I feel for her. I did give some money and she looked up with a beautiful smile .
