Clock work



2013 India Sketch Journal Page 14 By Meera Rao

I don't plan my pages at all and just sketch whatever catches my fancy each day. But I have been surprised to discover how there is always some connection between the two sketches once I start blogging about them.

This cow like clock work comes to this door looking for food as the lady of the house always saves the vegetable peels and waste for it. But the last few days even though the house is locked up and the family has gone on vacation, the cow still comes in the morning and waits at the door for an hour or so before it gives up and walks away in search of food!

This tiny shop looks like a relic from bygone era with the owner providing a service that is a rarity in the age of digital clocks! I could see some antique clocks on the walls, and clock & watch parts everywhere! I am sure that shop has some unique treasures!

Lovely sketches as alwasy Meera. I love the cow story. And how I wish clock repairs still existed as they did...such charm!

Loved the sketch of the worker on his cell phone a couple of posts back. Some people will just make you chuckle.

I am amazed at the connection between the sketches, you are very intuitive I guess! I just love this cow because like him I have one visiting my home in Bangalore. Dont think I am weird, I allow him to eat my plants kept specially for him, need not worry when I lock away and go!I love to repair all my old watches and clocks thanks to such shops that are plenty. Loved this post so much!
