Time to fall back

Today we "gained" back the hour we "lost" in the spring due to daylight savings time ending. Clocks are neat visual objects, I love their sense of architecture. I could (and probably should) do a whole series of them as I never tire of drawing them. This one is an 1840's Gothic-revival style desk clock, from a book of early American clocks. Clocks of this era/style often had reverse glass painting on the lower section, usually flowers or neoclassical subjects, but this one had a bee skep with flowers, kind of unique. Pencil, pen, and watercolor, 4 1/2" x 6 1/2".
