The Shield of Time


Here is the third offering from Once upon o'clock ...

An original and unique oil painting on a rustic chunk of wood, which also happens to be a clock.
It is handmade, finished to look like an old and wonky medieval relic, its quartz clock movement ticks away in perfect time, and it still has the mossy bark on.
It measures 8 inches by 7 inches and stands 1 1/2 inches out from the wall.

This third design depicts a sword-wielding knight riding on a rocking horse, and holding up the shield of time, it is painted in rich reds and ochres reminiscent of Russian icons.

Rima has done it again. It is absolutely breath taking, what a grossly talented lady she is.
