The Hole In The Tent Creation Video


I have been creating a a unique design in my art studio for the past 1  1/2 years…

The project has been well documented in photos and video with over 100 videos on Facebook live.  I have also created a few videos showing the process of painting several areas. This is the one I made on the The Hole in the Tent.  The hole was created by the Monkey- who is on top of the door with the scissors, the clown is trying to coax the monkey down to take away the sissors with a banana.  Through the hole we can see mountains, a lake, trees, and a hot air balloon up in the sky.

This whole area was created because in the design of my circus tent room, the framing did not have the same arch as the ceiling in the rest of the room, do to the area being the inside corner in the framing of the room.

Watercolor Clown #24 – Kelly Lynn Diehl


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.

Info about myself and the clown portrayed here in this blog will be at the bottom for now let’s get to the painting….

Watercolor Clown #24 –

Kelly Lynn Diehl

AKA FireKracker Kelly

Original SOLD

It was fun to create this original painting of FireKracker Kelly from one of her great photos . I hope to get an interview posted soon but for now here is the painting.  So look for the post to get to know more about this amazing clown!

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.

About this work:

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 or more 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.

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.

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.

The Many Faces Of Pat Cashin Painting


2013-03-03 20.50.10

Title “The Many Faces Of Pat Cashin”

The many faces of Pat Cashin” – I figure I  have 65.5 hours into the creation of this painting. Thanks to everyone who joined me for the facebook live sessions while I was painting it.
The original is going to his wife- Terry, but prints will available soon stay posted and I will let you know the details…
Original Watercolor 24 X 18 on Arches Cold pressed paper.
Painted with permission of Pat Cashin Family
As you all know we lost Pat recently. I had him on my list to paint but I was to late to get it to him so he could enjoy it. His family has asked for the original and prints for the boys, so I am trying to do the best that I can.

Patrick Cashin was a great man and a great clown for those of you who knew him I am sure he is being missed.  For those of you who did not know him below you will find his obituary.  I understand from those who know him well, that he was always loud and fun to be around and kept you in stitches laughing so hard when around him.  He will be missed.

Obituary 

Patrick Cashin Obituary

Patrick Cashin

AGE: 48 • Tinton Falls

Patrick Cashin, 48, of Tinton Falls, NJ – husband, father, Clown, Santa, Captain Kangaroo, and all-around comedian and entertainer, passed away suddenly at home on Sunday, July 24, 2016. He was married to Terry Cashin in full clown makeup and attire in Madison Square Garden before performing at the Ringling Brothers Circus, but his greatest source of accomplishment was being a terrific father to his two young sons, Shane and James.

In 2011, the Alumni Path Foundation recognized him, Cedar Ridge Class of 1985, for his legacy and recognition in Arts and Entertainment. He also graduated Brookdale Community College, Lincroft, NJ, Monmouth University, West Long Branch, NJ, and Ringling Brothers Clown College, Sarasota, FL. He was a stand-up comedian for several years at Rascals Comedy Club and many other events and locations, but longed to be a circus clown since he was a very young boy. He fulfilled his dream by working for Ringling Brothers as a Circus Clown, various shrine circuses, and many others – most recently as the Salaam Shriner’s Circus as the Director of Clowning.

He enjoyed playing the father in a well-respected Super Bowl Visa commercial in 2001 (the one with the multiplying bunny rabbits). He gave generously of his time to the Jersey Shore University Medical Center Pediatrics Department as a clown, as a Santa, with special needs children, and many other characters. He worked tirelessly toward improving the awareness of clown history and served as a board member and as the President of the International Clown Hall of Fame in Baraboo, WI.

The highlight of each year was being Santa at the Galleria (with his puppy Knucklehead), Red Bank, NJ. He was also an award-winning Santa in 2015 at Great Adventure, Jackson, NJ. Pat’s adventures in clowning took him to China, Singapore, Malaysia, and Spain. He also walked in many parades with his varied clown faces / costumes, and as his beloved Captain Kangaroo, many with his prized clown car, and he inspired his children to join him for many of these events. Pat also had the distinct honor of performing for the First Family at the annual White House Halloween Party.

Pat is survived by his wife, Terry, two sons, Shane and James, and his puppy, Honey Bear, Tinton Falls, NJ, his mother, Marilyn Flynn, Edison, NJ, his brother, Dennis, Edison, NJ, and two brothers and their wives, Joseph and Denise, Washington, NJ and Sean and Stacey, Edison, NJ. He was predeceased by his father, Joseph Cashin. He is also survived by his in-laws, Holly and Ron Williams, Brick, NJ, and two sisters-in-law and their husbands, Debi and Dave Glenn, and Patti and Manny Bosques, all in Wilmington, NC.

Pat was in his element entertaining his five nieces and seven nephews and many other family members, including aunts, uncles and cousins, close friends, as well as friends around the world.

Pat’s contribution to the entertainment world stretched the globe, honing his natural talent and showmanship from his hometown to bringing laughter and applause worldwide.

Relatives and friends of Pat are invited to attend a Celebration of Life at Johnson McGinley Funeral Home, 2652 Highway 138, Wall, NJ on Monday August 15, 2016 between 3:00 – 6:00 PM. A service will start at 6 PM. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to www.gofundme.com/patrickcashin for his children’s education. Additionally, a contribution to The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, the Ronald McDonald House of Southern New Jersey, or the International Clown Hall of Fame, Baraboo, WI, would be greatly appreciated.

This blog is about clowns.  All kinds of clowns.  I want to share your story.  If you reply to this post here or send me an email I will share your clown story with my readers.   Feel free to share links, photos, videos, blogs, Facebook or web pages whatever you would like to spread the word about your business, clown ministry or just to share the your history of clowning.

This blog is also about clown portraits which I myself paint or other artist have painted. So if you have some great photos and would like to be considered for a portrait share them so we can begin a dialogue.  I am looking for images to paint constantly but I am in high demand and there is a long waiting list so please have patients, I will get to you eventually.  This is a great problem to have as an artist but not to great for my clients. Sorry.

I hope to hear about some great clowns on here.  Please share your clown history with my audience.
