"Waiting" - Acrylic Painting 11" by 14"

Serene, I fold my hands and wait,
Nor care for wind, nor tide, nor sea;
I rave no more 'gainst time or fate,
For lo! my own shall come to me.

I stay my haste, I make delays,
For what avails this eager pace?
I stand amid the eternal ways,
And what is mine shall know my face.

 From "Waiting" by John Burroughs 

My hope for this painting was that it would express both the sadness for times that were as well as a quiet optimism for the times that are coming. She is biding her time. But she does not await the future idly. She actively studies to receive it when it does appear. 

I would love feedback. Please do share your thoughts.
