DescriptionAmazing what a long weekend will do. I was sitting around the house thinking of what to paint next. I thought, Gee, should I pick something out of one of my sketchbooks to paint? Should I try to translate a doodle into a painting? What kind of goofy colors could I put together on top of a doodle?That's when it hit me,... what a clown!I happened to be making a salad for dinner as well and thought, wouldn't it be cool for the clown to have cucumber eyeglasses?The ears were an afterthought.So that's how I painted a clown. Something that I told myself I'd never do.
