Come on sweetie! Why the sad face?
Here you are surrounded by the colours of Impressionism, but your face has no light inside. No gaze.
Pale and dour, your hands not touching the rich brown earth, but instead clinging to a limp ball of wool.
Shake off your cloak, throw away your boots, let down your hair – and live life the way the Impressionists wanted you to!
