He told her to keep the yellow ribbon, their engagement object, and someday he'll come back. But, the soldier cannot keep his promise.

An old story.

This picture really means a lot to me. It's beautiful and meaningful, and with my boyfriend going way to serve in the Marines, I choose to wear a yellow ribbon as well (Based on the Yellow Ribbon cadence he taught me). I worry he won't come back to me when he goes. This is a beautiful picture, with a wonderful meaning. Thank you for creating this.

You do a lot to break the anime mould this armpit of a site usually farts out. For that I respect you. If more anime artists were as willing and capable as you I would feel a lot less poorly disposed toward it.

My father died in the line of duty. Every time he was sent somewhere, we would tie a yellow ribbon around the tree in front of the house and affix one to the car's antenna. My mother wore one in her hair and you're right...one day he didn't come back. The shading on this is really beautiful; I'm just taking up watercolor again but mine keep fading and blending into one another instead of keeping their lines. I admire the detail work an the delicate brush strokes here.

Her expression is really sad but I can see a bit of hope in her eyes.
The yello ribbon is really beautifull, seems dancing around her and the dress color is wonderfull... In small, amazing work, as always.

My first thought when I saw this/ read the comment was the song "Tie the Yellow Ribbon 'Round the Old Oak Tree". It's a sweet song that my mom listens to on the same subject. : )

On another note, I always love seeing your watercolors! *w*

This is such a sad story, but she is still waiting for him, even if he won't come back anymore.
It's sad, but very beautiful at the same time...
Love your art, as always...
