No room is complete without a window, which serves as a link to the outside world and a reminder that there is more to life beyond these four walls. From the way the sun streams through in the morning to how the light slants and illuminates a person’s face during golden hour, windows provide the perfect backdrop to any scene. They’re also great tools to convey emotions in movies and illustrations—as the saying goes: “A window to the world outside can be a gateway to the soul inside.”
Look at the illustrations below, which all feature snapshots of everyday life near windowsills! We hope they serve as a reminder to take a break from whatever you might be doing and look at the view outside, no matter how busy you are. May these drawings serve as both light and inspiration for your day!
