Drips the Clown


Drips the Clown (sold)

approx. 82"x32" - acrylic on vinyl banner
(for the 101 Artists Colony banners this year)
I think clowns become sad because most people fear them blindly, and without any kind of understanding of what lies underneath the surface.
this painting really went through a lot of changes
from when it was started to its current state.

...listened to Clogs a lot when I painted this.

Kapsburger and 5/4 from Lantern)

I was able to see you at the Bar Basic Show on Tuesday - I really like your work. I also agree with you about clowns, completely misunderstood. Cheers!

so good to know I am akin to someone who is ..alive.. :) thanks for the nice comments.

And thanks, Glenn Brassland! I've taken many journeys to far away places in my mind listening to Clogs while painting. The National too. And Brassland.org has even more great music as well! Thanks for the link.
