Mortality and a journey, watercolor

One of the haunting photos I've taken, and written about, was this one from last December, "Mortality on my Mind," of this old gentleman walking slowly through Hafer Park. I saw him more than once, and he had a dog along. Talk about being mindful and enjoying every moment--this guy gives me inspiration. Here's that link: "Mortality."
And thus, as another year nears end, I tried painting that journey, that mortality, the metaphors of paths and autumn and gates, that we all travel.
