This week’s topic at Illustration Friday is “Hurry!” and I immediately thought of a host of sparrows we saw at the marsh in Jamestown.  They flitted above with such urgency while in the mud hundreds of crabs could easily be mistaken for rocks.  The image in my mind evolved from the photograph of the real event to this fanciful coach.  I’m not sure who she is or where she is going but she is certainly in a hurry.

Festina lente

σπεῦδε βραδέως

Make haste slowly

This painting was done in acrylic using only cadmium orange, ultramarine blue and titanium white.
