To Everything Turn, Turn, Turn...

Do you immediately hear the 1965 Byrd's song when you read these words? I sure do. Their lyrics come from King Solomon’s writings, penned thousands of years ago and recorded in Ecclesiastes, an Old Testament book of the Bible. That same section goes on to say, “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart…” It’s that last sentence that recently caught my attention. It’s a fun one to chew on and has been interpreted to mean a number of different things. I meet weekly with a friend, and we challenge each other to take a principle, truth or thought from Scripture and try to visualize it. Last week I took on this phrase. It’s such a stretching (and fun!) exercise for me – to take something totally abstract and then attempt to give it “visual flesh and bones”, so to speak. Here’s how it ended up - a collage, mixed media piece that kept changing and evolving as I went along. How fun it would be for me to see what YOU would come up with!!
