I apologize, but I don't have any "before" pictures... but trust me, this is an improvement.

I bought this clock a long, long time ago from LTD and it was supposed to have a plain cream colored face. But it didn't. Instead, it had a cream colored face with this screen print of a stream and a little boy fishing and that was done in a chocolate brown. I couldn't stand it. I put it up in my kitchen and forgot about it (hence the dust on it).

So I decided to give it a little face lift. I painted the whole thing a chcolate brown and did an wash in gold. Then I laid in the branch in ebony, then the blossoms in 4 shades of pink. I finally etched in the lines to give it a little more depth.

Thanks Smiley I was really apprehensive doing it freehand. I'm a scaredy artist.
