Don’t Look So Sad

By pamelajean
Sorry I missed uploading last week, and for not being able to look at your latest images, but my internet connection disappeared for a while.

This is a cherub on a large urn at Kingston Lacy, Dorset. The cherub does not look happy at all, his head resting in his hands.
3 versions of this little charmer.

A big thankyou to Kurt, Martin and Paul for their UAs on King Alfred.
And – no, Carol, I haven’t tested that mythSad.

Nice one. Mumps is a very painful condition, he has every reason to look glum. Wink
I'll come back in a bit for the versions.

You have to wonder - was it intended to look humorous, because in a strange way it does. Good detail and pov in V1!

a rather motherly camera on work here.. not sad.. hacked off is close.. Grin I mean more about tiredness and boredom.. and there is an emotional turmoil as well.. I mean - it is such a distance.. there are clear signs.. but still.. you know.. it maybe difficult for him to know.. well he believes.. but again, doubt sneaks in.. and why he takes so much stress in the process is because.. inside his heart, he knows it is a matter like life and death for him..

Lovely composition Pamela. He probably looks so glum because his wings have shrunk in the fountain Wink

I know how he feels! In the space of three weeks both my cars have broke down, my toilet broke, I have had a gas leek underneath my house and today my washing machine broke. Oh I have also been stung by a wasp!SadTongue
