The Face of a Clock
Some of you know that I have a few watches. A FEW. Ok, the last time I counted I think I got up to 16. None of them are digital. Seriously, if you need to find out the time, why not have the joy of looking at a beautiful clock face?
For reasons I don't think I understand I have always loved clock faces. So, it should be no surprise that I not only have a few watches, I also have a few miniature clocks. Most of them work. But two are slightly ancient, and have long since quit ticking. This is one of them. I was playing around with sketching them, seeing if I could make something actually look symmetrical....tricky. And could I draw reflections? Tricky.
Of course, then I had to play with painting it!
