, Rollo "Slappy" Spivey, acrylic on board, 16 x 12" cathedral

Rollo was employed as a leverage agent and debt collector. With his formidable size and large "slapping hands" people usually paid up as soon as they caught a glimpse of him. He rarely had to smack anyone, but when he did, it could be heard across town.

Known as a "smacker" with good intentions who loved to fix big clocks, he climbed the clock tower every few months to perform maintenance on the gears of the clock. Keeping time was very important to him. He was always very deliberate and conscious of how much time each activity he planned for his days took.

On his days off, he liked to lead his marching band through the tower square, and of course, keeping time with his enormous clapping hands.
