Interpretation: A cheerful, elderly woman hospitalized for a heart condition is happy to have a visitor. Supporting details: Her oval face and earrings indicate that she is a woman. Her gray hair and wrinkles lead me to believe that she is elderly. The tubes, contacts, blue clothes and white fabric, which I think is a pillow, are all things found in a hospital; the tubes and contacts are often used to monitor patients with a heart condition. I know that patients in hospitals usually have visitors, and that this can often make them happy. Since she is smiling, I infer that she is happy, therefore I think she might have a visitor.
