"Time Is A Circus"


"Time Is A Circus" Collage by Leada Wood

My dad was a clock maker and a jewelry store man. I used clock keys for the little man image and a clock face collaged onto the canvas, I painted various clock hands onto the canvas. and an antique pocket watch. My mon collected elephants so that represents her and the monkey on her back is me. There are also various clock parts interspersed into the painting. The monkey on the clock hand is represented by my brother. The writing says "Time is like a circus... always packing up and moving away" Isn't that the way time is... always moving on? Can you believe we are almost celebrating another new year? 2011 doesn't that sound so futuristic? And yet it is here...HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL! Wishing you all the best for the coming new year, and health and happiness!
