"The Number Twelve Ball" with pocket watch








"The Number Twelve Ball"/ oil on canvas 6"X8"/original oil painting
Note: The watermark does not appear on the original painting
BILLIARD POOL BALL SERIES 

The shape of the pocket watch mimicked the billiard ball--I also enjoyed the challenge of painting the watch face without getting caught up in the small numbers. Unless you're creating graphic designs, it's important to avoid the pasted look.
According to the New York Times, pocket watches are making a come-back. Now we can use that little pocket on our Levi jeans.
