Virgil Thrasher, 3D Clocks

Lately I've been drawn to 70's art. It's groovy man. I found the small picture below at an estate shop I like to go to. It's a signed piece by Virgil Thrasher, a silk screen print with reverse painted glass overlay on it. I paid $10.00 for it, so I was pretty happy with that. The Elgin clock on the left was purchased at a thrift store for a mere $3. Actually it was pretty dirty. Cleaning made a huge difference. Not sure if the clock works, it's pretty corroded where the battery goes. 

It's probably going in my son's room, he really likes it. I think it will look nice on his gray walls, it looks a little barren here on the cream color. I think it beats anything you could buy at Urban Outfitter for a lot less.

But Virgil stays with me.
