This piece was not planned out very well. Therefore the clock is poorly painted.

Help me in anyway you can. Any comments are welcomed.

The clock could indeed be better painted than you did. When I see those delightful painted puppets so much is clear. They are of a very high standard and I love the precision with which they're done.
To me, in the composition, the 'thinking-balls' take too much attention, also they're rather important, according to your title. Though I cannot fully interpret your work, I like some of the ideas in it, like the clock being a 'think-cloud' as well. So, only a fool bothers about time???:)

Tempus Fugit and all that

I was more interested in the figure. The clock is a fairly obvious allegorical reference. But what is that figure representing.

I like the work you have done on the figure the same as the others, and as to what it all means..well as someone else once said:

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

Please do repair that clock ! Five mins marked between each hour, hands pointing correctly in relation to hrs and mins, hour symbol centralised over each marking.
I like the figure very much and believe it deserves the same care elsewhere !
