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.

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 ….

Art Studio ReVamp – stripes beginning…


Hello everyone!

I have been working on a major revamp of my art studio.  We moved to our new home in 2011 and my Hubby was nice enough to allow me to take over the bonus room which is upstairs over the garage with its own half bath as my art studio.  The room is about 23 x 13 and I have filled it.  I do not know how I fit everything into the small bedroom I used in our old home.  On either side there is a door which leads to attic storage.  I love it but the color the whole house was painted in, including my art studio was already done when we choose the home and since it was new paint the practical home owner in me could not bring myself to make changes cause the paint was still in great shape.  So now here we are 5 years later and I am at last ready to make my studio more inspiring to my artistic mind.

I have permission from my Hubby to do whatever I want in my room, after all it is only paint and easily changed.  So since I paint circus clowns and it is kind of lonely up in my room when I paint – which is one of the reasons I love my online community- I have decided to paint the room as the interior of a red and white circus tent with a few quirky additions of my own.


Here is the plan my ceiling has the slanted sections on both sides and in 3 corners… This lends it to a tent shape very well.  In the inside corner where the ceiling and wall meet was framed out differently.  In this corner we will have a monkey with scissors who cut a big whole in the tent and we will be able to see blue sky, clouds, rolling hills, and at least one hot air balloon.  May do other things to in this space as I am inspired, but that is where I am starting.

In another corner there will be a bunch of colorful balloons.

At the end around my desk where the window is located will be the stage area.  Here there will be a group of my clown friends all gathered around my desk to see what I am working on.

I have posted on my personal and my artist Facebook page a request from all my clown friends for them to please supply me with great photos of themselves in full makeup and dress in particular poses with permission to use the images on my wall.  Many have answered the call.  I thank you all!  I am not sure until I get into the creating part of this exactly who or what I will do … So if any of you would like to submit images please do.

I am looking for poses where your looking down or out from a stage or down at a child or down at a table ….. Something like that with happy excited expressions….

I have a few photos and videos of the progress so far that I will post here.

 

 

Still lots to do ….

Love ya all

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
