World Wide Circus Summit 2015 Memories #5


Summit1In this post I will be sharing the photos from the The Summit All- Star Circus   -There are lots of photos of each act but this features Gary Sladek Borstelmann, Eric Zander Hussey, and Kolinda Zander-Hussey

If you want to save any of these photos get them now cause I will be deleting them before to long….

This July 15-18 I had the pleasure of attending the World Wide Circus Summit 2015 held in Springfield, MA. at the Big E Fairgrounds.  I was invited by Joe Barney and Lane Talburt.  After looking into what it was all about I decided that this would be a wonderful opportunity to feature my Clown Artwork and  possibly make a few sales and lots of Circus Connections.

As an outsider looking in who was not raised in the circus it has been a long struggle to  meet clowns on Facebook and befriend them and to be allowed to paint their image and win their trust.  I strive to capture the true clown persona and depict the makeup correctly which is important, because they are all part of the clown history.  I pay all my clowns 25% of any funds above my cost for any prints sold and I do not charge to paint them.
This was a great opportunity to meet many I had followed online, in person and a few I had painted already.  It was a blast!!!!!!!
I am going to post as many photos as I can here in several different blog post….  My hubby took around 1300 (my hubby doesn’t know any clowns or who anyone was, so he just kept taking photos for me because I was manning my booth during most of this) and I took 3 or 4 hundred myself.  If you’re in them or you just want them then save them to your computer.   I hope I spell everyone’s name right but I may mess up – please help me in correcting them if not properly assigned.  I probably have more of each act in the show from Friday night so if you’re in it and you want the photos sent to you just let me know.
Lets begin: This is all from my perspective and for my record in my blog,  so please be kind.
None of these are going to be in order of how they happened …sorry….

World Wide Circus Summit 2015 Memories #4

World Wide Circus Summit 2015 Memories #3


Summit1In this post I will be sharing the photos from the The Summit All- Star Circus   -There are lots of photos of each act but this features Elmo Gibb, The sideshows, and Johnathan Lee Iverson.

This July 15-18 I had the pleasure of attending the World Wide Circus Summit 2015 held in Springfield, MA. at the Big E Fairgrounds.  I was invited by Joe Barney and Lane Talburt.  After looking into what it was all about I decided that this would be a wonderful opportunity to feature my Clown Artwork and  possibly make a few sales and lots of Circus Connections.
As an outsider looking in who was not raised in the circus it has been a long struggle to  meet clowns on Facebook and befriend them and to be allowed to paint their image and win their trust.  I strive to capture the true clown persona and depict the makeup correctly which is important, because they are all part of the clown history.  I pay all my clowns 25% of any funds above my cost for any prints sold and I do not charge to paint them.
This was a great opportunity to meet many I had followed online, in person and a few I had painted already.  It was a blast!!!!!!!
I am going to post as many photos as I can here in several different blog post….  My hubby took around 1300 (my hubby doesn’t know any clowns or who anyone was, so he just kept taking photos for me because I was manning my booth during most of this) and I took 3 or 4 hundred myself.  If you’re in them or you just want them then save them to your computer.   I hope I spell everyone’s name right but I may mess up – please help me in correcting them if not properly assigned.  I probably have more of each act in the show from Friday night so if you’re in it and you want the photos sent to you just let me know.
Lets begin: This is all from my perspective and for my record in my blog,  so please be kind.
None of these are going to be in order of how they happened …sorry….

The signing of the Vest… My hubby took photos of us all getting the joy of having clowns sign our vest for a good cause!!!  This was during Intermission

The Great Elmo Gibb had a show on the midway.

 The Sideshow that took place before the main show.  They had a great show the only two acts I see we have photos of are the Female who walked on glass (sorry don’t know her name yet) and Murrugun T. Mystic who did the Thread act.

World Wide Circus Summit 2015 Memories #1


Summit1

This July 15-18 I had the pleasure of attending the World Wide Circus Summit 2015 held in Springfield, MA. at the Big E Fairgrounds.  I was invited by Joe Barney and Lane Talburt.  After looking into what it was all about, I decided that this would be a wonderful opportunity to feature my Clown Artwork and  possibly make a few sales and lots of Circus Connections.

As an outsider looking in who was not raised in the circus it has been a long struggle to  meet clowns on Facebook and befriend them and to be allowed to paint their image and win their trust.  I strive to capture the true clown persona and depict the makeup correctly which is important, because they are all part of the clown history.  I pay all my clowns 25% of any funds above my cost for any prints sold and I do not charge to paint them.

This was a great opportunity to meet many I had followed online in person and a few I had painted already in person to.  It was a blast!!!!!!!

I am going to post as many photos as I can here in several different blog post….  My hubby took around 1300 (my hubby doesn’t know any clowns or who anyone was, so he just kept taking photos for me cause I was manning my booth during most of this) and I took 3 or 4 hundred myself.  If you’re in them or you just want them then save them to your computer.   I hope I spell everyone’s name right but I may mess up – please help me in correcting them if not properly assigned.  I probably have more of each act in the show from Friday night so if you’re in it and you want the photos sent to you just let me know.

Lets begin: This is all from my perspective and for my record in my blog,  so please be kind.

Springfield…MA – it seems every trip away from the hotel no matter where we were going took us back over that river at least twice…LOL

2015-07-15 18.11.122015-07-15 18.11.16 2015-07-15 18.12.18 2015-07-15 18.12.22 2015-07-15 18.12.40-1 2015-07-15 18.17.14  The setup was hot, but successful for the show

I thought this was off to a good start.   Here are photos of all the booths around my booth.

2015-07-14 20.25.50 2015-07-14 20.26.07 2015-07-16 12.34.45 2015-07-16 12.34.47 2015-07-16 12.34.49 2015-07-16 12.34.51 2015-07-16 12.34.53 2015-07-16 12.34.55 2015-07-16 12.34.57 2015-07-16 12.34.58 2015-07-16 12.35.03 2015-07-16 12.35.06

The Movie “The Greatest Show On Earth” had a booth and they displayed several of the actual outfits worn by the cast during the making of the movie .  (VERY cool)                            2015-07-16 14.22.06 2015-07-16 14.22.14 2015-07-16 14.22.17 2015-07-16 14.22.33 2015-07-16 14.22.48 2015-07-16 14.23.24

The bead work on the outfits was amazing to see in person and the history they had on the table to accompany the outfits was very neat to see. They actually played the movie later too.

The main stage had a great backdrop. I am not sure who created it, (I will update when I find out) but they did a great job and it is featured prominently in all the show photos I will be posting so you will get to know this face well.  The Center image is of Johnathan Lee Iverson The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Ringmaster.

Ringling had a great Elephant area where they featured the work they do to save the Elephants… 2015-07-16 14.29.102015-07-16 14.29.202015-07-16 14.29.302015-07-16 14.29.46

 

 

 

During the Summit I had the opportunity to meet and talk to some great clowns this is just a sampling…

Watercolor of Clowns “Conk and Bluey”


2013-03-03 20.50.10Hello Fellow Clown Lovers,

Clowns – I love them!  I love to paint bright, colorful, happy images and clowns fit right in with that.

I have painted clowns for several years.  Until recently I focused on painting them in Acrylics on canvas, but I have renewed my love of Watercolor and I am currently working on a series of paintings that incorporates great clowns (most of whom I have made friends with on Facebook) and watercolor on small affordable 9 x 12 watercolor paintings. My goal is to create 75 watercolor clowns in the 9 X 12 size.  I hope to sell thru Facebook or directly to the buyer and hopefully sell a few to the proud clown collectors out in  the world.

Why I paint Clowns: For the record I do paint other things besides clowns but I have a passion and a love for clowns.  I paint my clown images with pride.  Many of the clowns I have met in person, or I am friends with on Facebook.  Some I have sought out because I came across a photo I liked. Others have found out about my work through their friends and came to me.  Each image is personally vetted.  I am looking for a certain look or feel from my paintings.  Not every image presented to me is right for a painting.

I am a skilled artist. I paint both in acrylic and watercolor. Neither of these mediums are easy or forgiving (especially watercolor). I have spent 40 years perfecting my skill. The fact that, I as an artist choose to paint some of the sweetest, funniest, most colorful, and always happy portraits you will ever find anywhere, is a matter of personal choice.

I realize that not everyone will get it or be on board with what I do. I realize there is a select market for my work. I am ok with this. I have faith that the clown and circus industry will surround me with love and laughter and purchase my paintings and prints. This is a very select market to sell to – I get it. You either love clowns or you don’t. I have been working for years to earn the trust of my clown friends and I will do my best to depict their clown persona, so that those who have had the pleasure of interacting with that clown in the past can remember and cherish those memories every time they look at one of my prints or paintings.

I am striving to be the best artist who paints clowns, I am following on the heels of Jim Howle (whom I have met and truly love) and Red Skelton (whom I wish I had met) I am not comparing my skill to theirs, but those are who I relate to.  … It is an honor to truly depict the magic of a clown, to catch the sparkle in the eye that has delighted thousands of children. If you’re good to the clown world they will be good to you.  Sincerely Patty Sue O’Hair – Vicknair.

Prints are available direct from the artist.

For those of you interested in any of the clown watercolor painting prints. There are 2 ways to get prints.
1. I will post the image on several sites, with links found on my page associated with the clown image. Also there are links from my page directly to the pages where all my art can be found for prints. All you do is choose the one you want, the size, how you want it printed (canvas, paper, etc.) and pay for it they will ship it to you. Here are some sites I am on. 

http://patty-vicknair.artistwebsites.com/ (fine art prints, cards, phone cases) 

www.Zazzle.com/psovartclowns (posters, t-shirts, mugs, mouse pads, etc…) 

http://greatclownportraits.com/blog and you can order originals or prints from here. Email me direct at psovart@gmail.com or call me direct at 479-601-5277

2. You can buy direct from me. I will order a print from my printer and provide a signed Certificate of Authenticity along with signing the painting. Your cost will be determined by the size you want + shipping to your location.
9 X 12 = $45.00
11 x 14 = $65.00
16 X 20 = $116.00
Each clown I paint receives a share of the proceeds, so rest assured I am selling these images with their blessing. If interested either message me on Facebook or email me at psovart@gmail.com we can handle the transaction by Paypal

Until next time. Happy Clowning!
