In 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….
