waiting

One of the paintings from my Vintage Singsong exhibition has a Christmas holiday theme.

Clockwork

 

These phrases had been in my head for months. We often personalise, “I can’t wait!” yet when we talk about patience, we say, “It can wait.” So, I made the pocket watch a personal item and the grandfather clock a bigger, impersonal object.

In this time of advent, which means waiting, these phrases are particularly relevant. We can’t wait for the season and all the gifts, but when it comes to paying the bills, oh they can wait.

Merry Christmas!
