The anticipation is over as the reveal begins for our new round of Viewpoints 9 challenges, I liked being able to select my own size within the framework imposed by units of 9"up to a maximum of 27"and chose a 27"long by 9"wide portrait format for Tide and Time my response to Martha's challenge.
Tide and Time
In Australia it is customary for the Summer holidays, with Christmas at the start of these, to be spent at the beach, swimming, walking and relaxing. "Oh, no it's Christmas again! Where did the time go?" were some early thoughts and contemplations and eventually evolved into recalling the saying 'time and tide wait for no man' which eventuated from 'tide and time tarrieth no man' perhaps from as early as 1225.
