Gothic Arches - Time


This week's theme reminded of the Shakespeare quote from Much Ado About Nothing - "Time goes on crutches, till love have all his rites" and so I felt a romantic arch was called for, I was reminded then of characters in old films meeting on blind dates "under the clock at Waterloo Station". So here is my lady waiting hopefully for love. The background is a mix of green acrylics over stamped with Stazon and Versafine then glazed with crackle glaze and the photo has been turned into a transfer. It would have been on here on Sunday but the crackle glaze took an age to dry. So not quite a flapper after all this week!
