Back to working on Octet

I left this piece in January. It is an attempt to capture the long useful but unsung life of my a very good older woman. She has persevered as a kindergarten teacher and community volunteer for eight decades of life. She has heart problems now and lives independently But it is clear her time here is winding down. I am trying to display time. And the various things that have happened ,good and sad, through the use of color. The spectrum ROY G BIV. And also to represent the spectrum of her life with all its highs and lows. So here is time passing. I had to tape over the existing body representations to put in time and not get paint all over them. This has happened so often that I've learned it's worth the time and the tape to not mess it up and have to fix it later!
