If you have visited Halifax, chances are good that you have seen the Town Clock on Citadel Hill.

Since 1803 it has been keeping time for the city...nearly perfectly. Over time it has become slightly fast, with the 200+ year old gears doing their own thing. As someone who runs perpetually late, I appreciate a clock that is a little fast and gets me where I need to be on time. It is one of the many reasons I wanted to paint this landmark. 

The clock has also watched over many major events in Halifax, the most significant being the Halifax Explosion. On that day in 1917, the clock stopped working at 9:04am when the Mont Blanc exploded. For this reason, the clock in my painting is set at 9:04, to commemorate this devastating and significant event in Halifax history. 

Time waits for no one, and trying to measure it can be flawed, but what a beautiful way to watch it pass.

Size: 12"W x 16"H

Materials: Acrylic on poplar slats

The artwork comes framed in white poplar, and includes hardware for hanging in your home. Shipping is available across Canada. Measurements include the frame.
