EDM #109 - Draw a Clock

This is Hubby's grandfather's ship's clock. It chimes ships bells - eight bells at 4:00, 8:00 and 12:00. Pawpaw had it back in his bachelor days before he married LeeLee (Hubby's grandmother).

My mum-in-law said when she was little she would listen for it to chime four times, or 2:00, because that meant she could get up from her nap.

What a cool clock.. my husband would LOVE a clock like that (being retired Navy)... you've done a really great painting of the brass... metal is so hard to do and have it look right... but you've done great. You need to help Miz Dee join Everyday Matters group, I invited her, but she said she needed you to help her join? So get on that right away ok.

I called Miz Dee this p.m. and got her joined up in the Flickr group. You should be able to see her sketches there now. So, mission accomplished!
