Illustration Friday: Time

When they began to dance, they no longer noticed that time and people were passing them by.

This is a detail of the painting I am working on. It's still in it's first stage, without any editing, so it will be 'fixed up' over time, before it's finished.

And speaking of Time... Yesterday I painted for the third time with a small group of people with Alzheimer's disease. Time has not been kind to them. There are moments when we laugh together, and memories of places and times come out in small comments. But I always leave feeling sad. And blessed. Very, very blessed. May Time be kinder to us all, and I hope each of you keep creatively active, as that can help ward off some forms of dementia. Remember how blessed you are, and give Thanks!

This is beautiful! I can't wait to see the finished painting. In answer to your question on my blog, i drew it with a mouse digitally. Although a cut out would be fun. Great style by the way.
