First off, I should 'fess up that the skull is one of my first “real” blends, from ages back. So a lot less than perfect in all ways.
I have always loved the look of old master paintings and that is pretty much the kind of thing I was trying to recreate here. The hourglass was something I did on the spur and I’m not 100% sure I like the caustic material.
Anyway, there is a saying that “poems are never truly finished. Only abandoned.”
So here it is - my blend/poem/effort.
