One of my old sketches has been given a new lease of life. It is now the logo for community organisation the Thank You Club in California. I created the original image a couple of years ago to thank people for following and liking my WordPress blog. The words have been repainted for the logo (to keep the colours consistent), there is a new family of stick figures (the Bamfords) and I rearranged some of the original figures to accommodate the new layout. I’m very thankful that my little stick figures are being put to such good use.
Time slip – acrylic on canvas, 102 x 102 mm, 2014 (for sale)
The title ‘Time Slip’ was the first thing that popped into my head once I finished this mini abstract. I must have been thinking about Doctor Who… or possibly the lyrics of the ‘Time Warp’ song… “With a bit of a mind flip, you’re into a time slip and nothing can ever be the same.”
Time slips happen quite a lot when I’m painting ― no, not the kind where I’m suddenly transported back to the French Revolution. I’m referring to the kind of time slip where you are so focussed on what you’re doing that time slips away and the time you spend doing something feels like no time at all.
Proof, as far as I’m concerned, that time travel IS possible.
