In the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge, Cheri asks us to post a picture that means “fleeting”.

Grandfather Clock, watercolor

Time is a fleeting commodity.  As this clock’s pendulum swings back and forth, it ticks off the seconds, minutes, and years of our lives.  Each to be lived once and never visited again, except in memory.

I did these three watercolor pieces last year and now have them framed together. Enlarged images of the individual pieces are available: clock, clock works, pendulum and weights.
