Tempus fugit

I was aiming to capture the interesting carved and painted details on this antique clock in such a short time period (20 min.) that I truly felt how quickly time flies. Pencil, pen and watercolor on watercolor sketchbook paper, approx 4" x 6".

Part of the clock collection of Old Sturbridge Village, Sturbridge, MA, unfortunately I didn't record the clock's age or maker at the time I took the photo. It probably dates from the earliest part of the 19th century. With its "shabby chic" painted finish and small stature, this clock is pretty humble compared to others in the impressive collection, but I found quite a bit to admire about it tonight.
