To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven...Ecclesiastes 3: 1

I was a bit undecided what would be the best entry to use for the paint scheme and went back
into my archives for experiments that I practiced on for my daily diary series...I repainted
the frame of a wall clock on this portrait and almost had it completed when I did this self portrait..

You can see the blur in my hand that held the brush as I was painting . I did this self portrait on January 25, 2010.

To be truthful I think this fits the challenge better than my previous entry but I thank you for the kind comments that you made.

A black and white version on a different pose of this SP can be found at the following link:

Thank you so much Davide Simone for your kindness of the spotlight.

    A great theme shot Andrea! You sound like me. I repaint a lot of my yard sale finds to freshen them up a little.

    Thank you for the comments...I bought this clock new but I was more attracted to the apple design shown inside the clock than I was to the color of the frame as it was originally..It
    was between an apricot color and orange...Green looks better..

    Although I like the B&W, the soft light on the soft colors endears this one to me.
