We move forward from two successful exhibitions in 2016 in Prague and in the USA to the challenge of an exhibition in the Netherlands in the Autumn. We continue to work on A2 sized pieces in portrait format and will be producing four pieces over the year with the theme of 'Freedom'. An essential part of our art is working in series to a common format which does give us all a framework for our creative endeavours.

The Sands of Time - Kelly

It is actually 11:59 pm as I start writing this post. So I'm only 4 days late!  Whew....that was close!

Time is a recurring theme in my art.  Has been for quite some time. My first art quilt was a mixed media piece "It's About Time" which was shown at the Houston IQF a few years ago. Still have a list and some sketches of other pieces for this time series begun back then.  Perhaps they will get done someday as well!

I think it is a recurring theme because time is a constant challenge for me.  The lack of it, the arrangement of it, other people taking it up, and even on occasion...too much of it with no energy to do something productive with it. I try to manage it, redeem it, save it, spend it well. Some days are more successful than others. But it is still such a big part of my daily vocabulary that the whole concept of time is a very integral part of Who I Am.  That plus I LOVE clocks in art work!!

The Sands of Time

The final piece for this year has been started and hopefully I'll find TIME to do it on TIME!  (see what I mean?????)


  1. I loved the effect of the ageing brown speckled colour on the blue background Kelly and what effective choice of binding too.

  2. I love these old clock faces Kelly. Did you stamp them on to the background? The harmony of the whole design is pleasing too. Great piece.
