I was never quite sure whether this man and his dog were waiting for the next train or waving off the last train. I suppose they could be doing both.
So, farewell to 2016. The last day of December always holds a certain nostalgia, especially if someone much loved has been lost and will not be travelling with us into the New Year.
But it is a day of hope, too.
So another year to look forward to "trying to create a little magic with oil paint". I hope you will be with me for the journey.
Thank you so much for your company this year. Have a very Happy New Year.
