A visit to the new art supply store in Kansas City, Artist and Craftsman Supply, was just what I needed to get me out of my funk. I bought all kinds of art goodness. And then there it was, sitting by the cash register were bags and bags of watch parts. I knew I had to have them even though I had no idea what I was going to do with them. It was that time thing again.
And so my "Time" triptych was born. This is the first piece in the triptych and I used up a half a bag of watch parts on it. I also deviated from my usual palette of bright vivid colors. I like the muted neutral tones, it kinda matched my muted mood. So I'm off now to work on the remaining two.

I have fond memories of many walks in the woods behind my house when I was a kid. We would catch crawdads, pick up earthworms after a good rain and mushroom hunt. Those were good times!
