Strange thoughts form when you watch science shows about the universe and creation, combined with horrifying wildfires scorching the West and much of Europe. Eternal, changing time juxtaposed (I've always wanted to use that word) with present tense.
Though according to Yahweh, there is only present tense, "I am that I am."
How do you paint time? What are the colors of time? Time began with light, either scientifically or spiritually, the source of life. And light is color.
The overpowering image that came to me is the inferno of those fires in this long hot summer, making me think of the end times when Sol ends the earth, or when eternity begins.
Then I thought of twilight, before it happened, and then when time and color began, in creation.
So today's 5 x 7 abstract watercolors, moving backward in time, from the end, to twilight and decay, to the beginning.
