This clock has been in my house for nearly 15 years. I am not sure how old it is but I know it was old when I bought it. I just thought about painting it the other day. It is painted with Rublev 18th century reproduction watercolor paint on Arches 140# cold-pressed paper. The large pigment coupled with the course paper create some interesting textures in the wood for this piece. The original is 5″×7″ in size.
