On Monday I found myself stuck in traffic for several hours (two different tractor trailer accidents closed down two different highways). My mood shifted from frustrated (dozens of emails to answer and I needed to write a post for DAM, not to mention work waiting to be completed for the new class), to calm resignation, to grateful for the time to plan next steps and remember that I was only inconvenienced, not affected by the accidents. The Universe gives us plenty of opportunities – sometimes in the strangest places – our job is to remain open to them.
The Thieves of Time
It’s a new day today and Janice Parker’s porcelain and copper figures fit my mood. Perhaps the 3D illustrations of her original story The Thieves of Time, the Magpie and the Time Machine remind me of how my day unfolded yesterday. . .
The Thieves of Time, the Magpie and the Time Machine
Or maybe it’s just that I can’t help but smile when I look at these quirky characters. I think Parker uses an image transfer process to get her sketches onto the porcelain. Love it.
