Time is of the essence

Time flies by so fast. It’s never enough to make everything we want to make.

Instead, we waste it in doing things which don’t really have importance.

If we had limitless amounts of time how would we spend it? Would we care about time-wasting? Would we still create deadlines? How would limitless time change our life preferences?

‘Time is of the essence’ is the name of my acrylic painting – time flows like rivulets of rainwater on glass.

Butterfly

when I start painting of course I usually have some idea what to paint however as soon as I hold the brush in my hand it becomes detached, and starts painting things it wants itself. My mind completely turns off 🤪 When I am ‘sober’ again I feel extremely exhausted but happy, because I already see the result of my work.

This time result was such.

I don’t really know what exactly is this creature. Butterfly? Moth? Maybe just plant? Although whatever it is, it represents connections with nature.

Dragonfly

A wide variety of myths and symbols are associated with the dragonfly.

But the most important things it symbolizes in many countries are change and self realization. Supposedly the connection with self realization comes from dragonfly’s ability to control its movements so elegantly. And change is all about the dragonfly’s ability to fly everywhere and be comfortable on water, land or air.

Other things dragonfly symbolizes in different countries include power, victory, good luck, prosperity, harmony, happiness, speed and purity.

There are some less pleasant symbols connected with dragonfly, for instance in some European countries people believed dragonflies come around to check for bad souls, others were calling it witches’ animal or even snake’s servant!

Personally for me dragonfly is a symbol of elegance and ability of flying up.

Moth Time

This was my first time painting with acrylics and I was afraid a little bit, but I was surprised by how easy and pleasant it was. I loved the whole process!

Why moth? It symbolizes determination, attraction, and faith. I suppose I found some similarities to my own situation 🙂

Have look at whole picture and details as well.
