River Bed

“Time is a sort of river of passing events, and strong is its current; no sooner is a thing brought to sight than it is swept by and another takes its place, and this too will be swept away.” Marcus Aurelius

Painting is a visual experience, of course. But art has the power to reveal more than the eye can see. Important insights into our outer and inner worlds are discovered and divulged.

Here, a riverbed arrangement along the West River reflects an enduring truth; “The only thing that is constant is change” Heraclitus

    My husband passed away at 66 years old last night. The quote sbout time passing struck a immediate chord. Lovely painting.

    Lovely work, Peter…and lovely and very apt quotes as well. As the old Native American proverb says:
    “You can’t dip your foot in the same river twice.” Thank you for uplifting others with your work.
