Years ago someone gave me a small kid’s acrylic set for Christmas. It came with a tiny easel, a couple tiny canvases, and small tubes of kid grade acrylic paint. There were a few brushes included and a little tote bag. Needles to say this little kit sat around my studio collecting dust. I thought about giving it to one of my nieces but never got to it. When I started making clocks I began using all sorts of materials that I had been collecting, including this random kit.

I never sold the full size clock pictured above. Everyone thinks it’s cute, including me, but not cute enough to put on a wall. It has become one of my seconds and I might try to get rid of it at the artist garage sale this year.
The cheep brushes that came with the little kit were what I used on the first Artist Pallet Clock. It was a great stumble upon move and now I collect all the cheep brushes I find just for these clocks.

Then I decided to make a clock out of the mini easel. What I created, I fell in love with. And so did many others, but I’ve only had the one prototype that I put up at shows for advertising. I have recently come across more easels and am now in the process of creating these cute desktop clocks. I am excited about this new line and have some treasure ideas for designs.
