Artful Times -- Triptych

For my DT piece on Artful Times I decided to do something I had wanted to do for a long time. I wanted to use an old photograph of my late brother and myself as small children. I also had a couple of us that were taken on the same day in 2006. My brother was making a speech at my 2nd wedding.
He sadly died in 2008
I have used a wooden triptych frame. which I painted with Fresco paints, and then with crackle glaze, and then some more paint. I mounted the photos on some hand made paper, and added a clock and some cogs, to denote the passage of time.
On the back I stamped various appropriate words and quotes. The middle one which has caught the light reads:  Memories are treasures that we keep locked deep within the storehouse of our souls, to keep our hearts warm when we are lonely
