today is posting day for textile abstraction theme TIME:
In a hurry
I’m in a hurry to get things done,
I rush and rush until life’s no fun.
All I really gotta do is live and die,
but I’m always in a hurry and don’t know why.
When I first saw the new theme of our challenge I had a lots of ideas how to realize it. Then things throwed down: my house in reconstruction up in the mountains had to be finished for the end of may and as usual things never works as you planned, at the hospital, where I work, there have been other problems, my daughter felt sick at university and I had to take care of her and so on.
So suddenly I was in a hurry, as ever. My work is a mirror of this. The old clock symbolize the quieter times we once had, the running figures symbolize the fact that I’m always running.
