More failure

Another failed drawing I liked enough to show, because when I try this one again, I dont think those black steel ornaments will be on the window, although I'm very fond of them.

Who knows what I'll have to do to make this idea work, because it has stuck with me for more than 5 years.

I dont remember anything like that, which is odd because I have a really good memory.
