Time Flies

For Mother's Day Playmaker gave me the transformation (below) she made for an art project at school. Only after my intitial thoughts of how "timely" such a unique gift was given how my kiddos are growing up right before my eyes (Spokes graduates this month, Playmaker just got her permit & Strike is officially a teenager now!), did I find a note she'd written explaining how she thought it seemed appropriate for a house full of kids who are growing up fast. Hmmm - who knew I had such a good eye for interpreting fine art?! One aspect I didn't manage to capture very well in the photos is the fact that it's compiled/drawn/comprised totally of the teeniest of tiniest little dots -- all done by hand and in ink. The dots remind me of seconds on the clock -- tick-tocking away. One by one.... I was so thrilled to receive this work of art - but the more time I spend thinking about it, the sadder I get (talk about transforming)! Yikes! ... please excuse me while I go spend some precious time w/ the artist!

There is an artist I know (Sienna Morris) who does all of her art with numbers. http://www.siennamorris.com/ You guys should check it out. It's very similar to the pointillism that A. is doing, but with numbers. She calls it Numberism.
