The Millionaire

Standard

The_millionaire_webAgainst all the odds, memory lives….we call it Time.  Artefacts & monuments that preserve a connection to the past defy decay & validate our experiences & the passage of our life…….. Time is my enemy and my friend…….. it gifts me with the pleasure of seeing my children & grandchildren’s lives unfolding before me, all the while insidiously stealing my vitality, decaying my body, robbing my memory of it’s treasure……. it’s the passage of my lifetime & all that it encompasses….. all that I have to create my eternity……..it is immortal…….. irreplaceable…….. & therefore it makes sense that ‘an unhurried sense of time is in itself a form of wealth’  Here is the last of my Gypsy series….The Millionaire, who lives without the construct of schedules & timetables…… a work in Golden Acrylics & Senellier Oil Pastels.  The stamped time pieces in the background are from Oxford Impressions.
