Painting of the Day: "The Future of Tomorrow"

"The Future of Tomorrow" by Leslie Helena Evans


  This is a gorgeous coloured pencil work by Leslie Helena Evans, and I am completely astounded by the amount of details in it.

  The painting itself reminded me of a story I once wrote; about a pig named "Pog"...

  Pog thought he was a puppy, because he was adopted by a dog when he was little. Later on, he met a duck named Gilbert, who told him that he wasn't a puppy.
"Pog is a very fitting name for a pig." the yellow animal replies.
"I beg your pardon?"
"Pog." the animal repeats. "It's a very fitting name for a pig."
Pog frowns.
"Well, you are a pig, now, aren't you?"
Pog shakes his head. "No, I'm a puppy."
"My word, but aren't you confused." Gilbert. "Just as true as I'm a duck, you're a pig."
  We grow up believing in the labels that people attach to us. We grow up believing that we're meant to do something or be something, just because other people expect us to be that way... But if you're not happy doing what you're doing then you've got to change.

  Change the way you live. Change the decisions you make. Change the place you live in. Change the foods you eat, the people you meet, the books you read, the movies you watch...

  Change is the only constant– isn't that what we're taught in Science. And with every tomorrow there is a promise. A promise of new possibilities. A promise of new coincidences. A promise of new choices. A promise of a new future. A future of tomorrow.
