I found Stan in an art supply store. He's a Woodland Scenics Seated People (1/4" Scale A2043).
He was hanging on an aisle endcap and caught my eye as I was scanning the rows for pens. He and his people were all seated, waiting eternally. Stan seemed the most optimistic of the crew, looking off to the far horizon. Hopeful. Confident. Longing.
I snapped his picture, found the pens, paid at the register and went my way.
But for some reason I couldn't forget about Stan.
A few weeks later I went back and bought the last pack of Woodland Scenics Seated People off the rack.
And now we're getting to know each other, me and Stan.
More to come.
