Illustration Friday: Horizon

This week's Illustration Friday word is Horizon. I had a lot of work to choose from, but I ended up using this. It's a digitally altered picture printed on some heavily textured paper and collaged onto the cover of a discarded book. It says... I wish I could get out of this dead end job.
My husband and I went out on a date the other night for my birthday. Without kids. That wouldn't seem too significant except for the fact that we had not been out together without the kids since we moved to Arizona. That would be September of 2006, if memory serves.
That sounds pathetic, I know.
I used to wish I could see over the horizon, but recently I have decided that today's troubles are indeed enough for today.

Great piece of art.
Very "warm" and 'confortable' (I'm sorry I'm french I try to find the rigth words but sometimes I fail:),I like it very much!

I love the colors and textures, and the energy in the handwriting is great. I can relate to the feeling of needing to flee, too...
