Art Studio ReVamp – The Balloon Sales Team Videos


Hello Everyone,

Art Studio Revamp is in full swing…

Across from the hole in the tent in the opposite corner is where my Balloon Sales Team is located.

The main salesman is Shorty with his sweet expression he will sell you a balloon. The balloon are all above him.  On the adjacent wall is Bob he has been promoted to sales manager so he is just standing there watching Shorty work.

This is how my mind works I come up with little stories for my images.

Here are photos of the painting  progression of this part of the art studio redesign…. I will follow this post with one that contains the videos that were shot during the painting of this section.

I still need to touch up and clean up the trim area and I made add gold accents to the Elephant pad under Shorty but for the most part this is done.

Next is the creation of the Madalin around my fan – the changing out of the fan to a more colorful option and the actual design of the big circular madalin around my fan with a circus theme.

Art Studio ReVamp – Videos of Hole in Tent


Hello Everyone,

Art Studio Revamp is in full swing…

My tent has been vandalized by a Monkey who got ahold of a pair of scissors and cut a corner out of the tent.   Thru this hole we can see blue skies, a hot air balloon, mountains, rolling hills and a lake so far….  We also have the monkey over the door with the scissors in hand and a clown down below trying to coax the monkey down with a banana.

Here are videos of the painting  progression of this part of the art studio redesign….

 

 

 

 

The next set of video’s and photos will cover the opposite corner…Still lots to do ….

Focus of this Blog…it is changing…


Hello All, I originally wanted to make this blog about the clowns that I paint, the paintings themselves and then I was hoping to find other artist who also like to paint clowns and feature them… well, there really are not that many out there and the ones that I have found who are active currently are very busy and do not have time to be interviewed.

So I am changing this blog to be about my art.  I will most definitely post a progression on each painting.. (clown or other images) and if I can secure an interview with the Clown featured in the artwork I will post that to or at least links you can follow to learn more about them.  I think it is wonderful to learn about the clowns and the clown industry from those who have lived the life.

I have found a wonderful Facebook page I encourage all of you to check out that features not only clown art but circus art to.  I encourage all of you to check it out.

Also if you want to follow along in real-time to my art as I am creating each painting.  Please follow my Facebook Fan Page where I will be posting live video of me painting, videos as I complete the work for the evening and progress images of my current works.

At the current time of this post I am embarking on a major revamp of my art studio complete with a wall to wall custom mural of the inside of a red and white striped circus tent, lots of clowns, a monkey, hot air balloon and maybe an elephant or two.  I will be posting using “Facebook live” video of the painting process once I get to the stage of applying paint.   I will also be posting progress on this blog…

I am excited to create my own custom art space with images of my Facebook clown friends to keep me company… It will be a big job but lots of fun to create.

Love ya all

Creation of Leader Of The Pack Painting

The Leader Of The Pack was created from one of my own photos.  I choose to leave out one of the horses who is behind some of the horses on the left.  I also choose to alter the background and the foreground so the horses are the focus of the painting and the donkey stands out.  After all he is their leader.

World Wide Circus Summit 2015 Memories


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!!!!!!!

Ok I tried to upload the photos here but only have  so much room for photos and info so I decided to delete these and upload them to my Flickr site instead.  Please follow the link provided and you should be able to find all 1500 images unedited and free to download.

Click here to be taken to the photos on FLICKR

 

Please check out my artwork while here.  I love clowns and have painted many of your friends with many more to come!
