Welcome to Edmonds Gallery Week Twenty-Three of the Year of Weeks 2013 Joan Dance Paintings. On this week we have for your viewing perusal the Painting "Tooth Brush".
In the painting we see two youth, with one of the youth having lost a tooth or teeth. The other youth is looking away from the first youth with a quizzical look on his face. The youth that has lost the tooth appears to be feeling for his lost teeth. He has perhaps been told that this is a rite of passage from child to a more mature state. The first change that heralds many changes to come, culminating in an adult that will have children to start the cycle yet again. As we view we also reflect on where in this process we are personally. We are reminded to, number our days that we might apply wisdom, for the days of our life are indeed fleeting. While we are yet robust and strong, what things must we now do ?
