Painted #44/100
Finished a clock last night, I found this paint can lid on the RR Tracks in Morrisville, VT. I love that I found it there, it was meant to be part of the Limited Ed. RR Clock Series!

Where do you come up with these ideas, very cool, At work I would have picked up the lid and thrown it out, from now on I'm saving all my lids for you,lol.

thanks blue jude
bob, honestly if you saw how i come
up with the ideas you would think me an idiot savant.
this idea was a culmination of many mistakes and trial and error with other ideas.
save those lids...i could make a whole series with old paint can lids :)

Hi Self Taught -- This is such a cool clock! I love it. And I love the history and story that is in the paint lid -- and what it's seen in its lifetime. I love how all of your art pieces have story and soul in them. It gives them all such an amazing energy.
