This painting looks at time as a journey. A journey starts somewhere, goes through something, and in the fullness of time, ends up somewhere. The that journey. From our vantage point we can see the road traveled, as well as the road ahead.
The landscape is also organized in sections, or stages. There is a stage of walking through a field in a valley, but looking ahead we see foothills and later mountains the path may wind through. We have an idea of what lays ahead, but because of the twists and turns, the actual path remains uncertain.
The main focus of “Connection Points” are the golden arches that frame the traveler. These represent the unseen significance of Kairos moments on the journey. From the vantage point of the viewer, we can see how specific moments in time carry weight. Another way of looking at this is that certain moments are connected. They are related and build on each other. Understanding the fullness of time helps us to look at the moments of our life in terms of relatedness and progression.
“Connection Points” prompts such questions as: What are the areas of connectedness to notice in our journey? What are we journeying toward? It helps us to step back and gain perspective on our journey through time.
This is a mixed media piece which includes gallery wrapped canvas (20x16x1.5"), oil paint, metallic oil paint, cold-pressed watercolor paper, graphite, gel medium, and varnish. This style of collage painting helps express the layers, textures and varying elements that come together to tell the story with more depth and interest than paint and canvas alone.
The painting comes unframed unless you purchase a framing option but is painted on all sides if you choose to display it unframed.
Paintings usually ship within 1-2 weeks unframed, 2-3 if you choose the framing option. Shipping costs are included (approx. $50 value) and additional shipping costs of the frame are wrapped into that price.
About this collection:
The Fullness of Time Collection explores what it means to live within the bounds of time. What is the purpose of time? What are we filling our time with? What is time moving towards? When we better understand these concepts we are able to move through life in agreement with time. We start to understand right moments, proper perspective, and future fulfillment. This collection highlights different aspects of the fullness of time.
