Time

We've been abstract painting this afternoon on the theme of "Time". Mine is meant to be a spiral, showing our happy memories going back in time, gradually getting darker until you reach the all too often dark and foreboding present, funneling into the prospect of a bright future. Emily's shows the myth of time. She's been thinking a lot recently about what time is, whether it's real and how it can be explained. Her painting symbolises the strange progress of time, fast, then slow, then fast again, via the wiggly line. The hourglass shapes contain the mystery of time, and then one breaks and the dual blessing and curse of time floats down the rainbow to mankind. We had fun painting these. Very therapeutic.
