Hello 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. Since the watercolor series is new and not well know I have the luxury of selling these paintings at a pretty reasonable price.
My goal is to create 75 watercolor clowns. I hope to place sell thru Facebook and Etsy and hopefully sell a few to the proud clown collectors out in the world.
Each image will be on Canson 140 LB Watercolor paper 9 X 12. Each image will be mailed in a document mailer with a certificate of authenticity.
Let me know if your interested or if you have a clown image for me to consider for the series.
This is the fourth painting – Master Clown Frosty Little
Who is Frosty Little? CLICK HERE TO READ ABOUT FROSTY LITTLE ON WIKIPEDIA
From Wikipedia :
“Glen “Frosty” Little was a circus clown who served with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus for over 20 years. He was one of only four clowns ever to have been given the title “Master Clown” by the Ringling organization”
I like to take pictures along the way as I paint so you can see the creation from start to finish. Enjoy! Leave me a note if you like the painting.
In 1977 Little was asked by the Sarasota Herald-Tribune what he would do after he retired from the circus. Little replied, “Leave here? Are you out of your mind? I’m never going to leave here. I’ll always be a clown.
I am looking for the descendents of Frosty Little – If you know them please send me their contact information.
