Description The colors of this piece came from a butterfly and its environment. It has oranges, red, brown, black, white and green in it. The drawing comes from one of my doodles and evolved to this. It reminds me of the oddity of a circus with all its different kinds of people, and creatures. The circular objects make me think of balls and the juggling that goes on at a circus. Even the colors are odd but energetic!This original piece is a 5' x 7' colored pencil drawing. To see or buy my originals go to PjCreates.etsy.com.
Penny Pausch, Jonesboro Member Since February 2012 Artist Statement I grew up way back in the hills of Missouri (U.S.). I was a country girl and loved every moment of it. My sister and I did not have many toys and so we played outside on trees and other things in the woods and learned to use our imagination. This has become an asset to me. I knew by the 5th grade that I wanted to be an artist more than anything else. I like to paint, sew, minipulate objects so that they are interesting, cook, and write poetry. One of my goals is to write a poetry book and illustrate it. I recently have gone back to college after 17 years of raising my children.
