Painting of an antique Pocket Watch

I love this old watch my mother gave me. She purchased it from her husband, a retired antique auctioneer. The other side of the case opens to reveal the company seal: The Dueber Watchcase Manufacturing Co.

This little painting is a mere 6” x 6”. Sometimes small paintings are harder to paint than larger ones simply because I have to be so careful with the detail.

Time is moving quickly, only one week until Christmas here in the U.S. I try to use my time spending it with those I love!

I haven't been here for a while...the watch painting is great!


Mara, just came across your site today. Nice job on the watercolor of the hand with the pocket watch. The pocket watch has been a favorite addition to some of my still life paintings. Glad to make your acquaintance! Eileen
