Oil on board
18 x 24 inches
This is a painting done on an old pallette full of paint that eventually gave the images life.
My teacher Julian Ritter painted clowns. The facial expressions and mystery of them kept me painting circus images for years.
I was trained in painting portraits so the faces in general were and are a favorite of mine
This painting is of someone I knew and the feeling of smoke and mirrors as well as illusion dominate the picture.
