6" x 9" Mixed Media Drawing on Distressed, Dictionary Page
For this page I wanted to build something that looked like it was pretty used up. I have long loved clock faces and have used them quite a bit in my artwork. I especially like vintage, old clocks that show some wear and tear. In other pieces I've set the clock to reflect the birth dates of our family members. In this clock I have the hands at 2:14 which is the birthday of our newest grandchild, Quinn.
While I was working on this piece our family got word that a classmate of Quinn's mother, my daughter Lindsay, had unexpectedly and tragically died. It's been a very sad week. As I drew I thought a lot about my precious little Quinn and about Lindsay's childhood friend who died at the age of 30. I think my feelings came through on this piece - the passage of time and all that transpires with it.
