Above the Clouds by chris5565 Above the Clouds by chris5565
The title of this monochrome watercolour has a double meaning. The pair are literally above the clouds: he's looking out of the aeroplane window at the cloudscape and mountain-tops below (yes, the nearer one is a volcano). She is reading a braille info about the country they are flying to - note the tactile maps on her table and in the book on her lap. So she is above the clouds of her blindness - she doesn't let it get in the way of travelling. Note her cane lying diagonally between them, dividing and at the same time uniting them.

:wow: How beautiful. Your explanation is very moving. I figured out what was going on even before I read it, as the visual impact actally explains and conveys your meaning. Very memorable, indeed. :rose:
