The Big 400 #5- General Electric Snooze Clock

Happy Tuesday! I always do some vintage type still lifes especially meant for this show.  I started painting vintage little treasures maybe a couple of years ago and now I just love looking for everyday old items to paint. I think my favorites are clocks, radios, cameras and typewriters. The real clock I found at an estate sale for 50 cents.   I think my favorite era of time to thrift is the 50's and 60's and just love the use of color and how much personality it has. 

Tonight I am having a few lovely ladies over to screen print- yah! so excited.  What are you up to today? 

Oil Painting on 8X8 wood board.
