Day 4 of the 5 Day Art Challenge: illustrations for Alan Lightman's book "Einstein's Dreams"

I accepted the Facebook 5 Day Art Challenge nomination from my friend and artist Audrey Hawkins. Day 4 is a personal project I haven't shared before, as I work on it intermittently: illustrations for Alan Lightman's book "Einstein's Dreams". The book is a meditation on the nature of time, and every chapter asks a "what if..." question.

“People have no memories. For it’s only habit and memory that dulls the physical passion. A world without memory is a world of the present..”-Alan Lightman, "Einstein's Dreams"
