Seize This Moment : Past, Present & Future

My secret definition ; artists are guardians of time. I try to catch the critical moment in sketching human figures.

I slipped into the past, Medieval Fayre in
Blacktown. So many interesting displays and shows. There, I captured the moment when a lady tried to get a thread through a needle's eye. Her dresses reminded me of Frans Hals's portraits(*I'm his big fan!). Wow, indeed, her group, The Pike & Musket Society displayed his pictures on a table. Aftermath, when I came back to the present, I felt a bit strange about our world and giggled.

But a past ubiquitously comes up in the present. The other day, I sketched a uni student juggling balls on a campus. When I was at uni, some students were practicing juggling etc on lawns. Today, exactly the same! History repeats itself?! Students and I soon became friends and enjoyed a chat over "how to get through a course," and
"how to get money & survive as bunskers?!". Hahaha, nothing different!!

I also sketched a man calling for customers to a
bargain before closing a shop. His face told me, "Life is not easy at this moment," but his face expression moved me.
I often think of this ; What is a moment? My answer is..." a piece of eternity." What is eternity? My answer is ..."gathering moments. " I always wonder what time is. Even though a physics teacher never satisfied me, I, at least, got why there were physics and metaphysics in subjects.
And I chose brushes and pencils to seize a moment.

When I sketch a baby, I feel I'm touching a future hiding in it.

Time moves on from a past, to the present and into the future.I'll record time in my art works.

Here's the very interesting blog "International Routie-the Blog" that uploaded my images. You can enjoy time travel like me.

  10. Dear Keith,
    Thank you for visiting this blog! I love your drawings, too. The beauty of lines.
    Concentration & careful observation. Sports & sports-like movements have patterns to repeat. So, I try to catch the repeat and pick up a drama.
