The space between past and future is of our own making. What we have achieved and what we want to achieve are elements of our lives to be contemplated. The calm neutral face is surrounded by the dark fleeting past and the bright energy of the future. A palette knife was used for most of the background since this allows for spontaneous colors mixes and reflects the energy I wanted depicted. The face was painted onto this base while allowing the colors to come through and making her an integral part of all that was happening.
