I own four clown paintings and have loved clowns since I was a kid. I loved the idea running off to the circus and making people happy, sad, or simply scaring the shit out of kids all while the stink of Scotch whiffs from my breath. Tears of a clown and it's meaning have always had an impact on me. As I would buy, read anything that related to clowns and the circus. But the effect clowns has on people also interests me still today. The fact that people always feared these mystical fragile entities fascinated me, when I always thought there was a deeper story to be told. But I love them, and just feel they are slightly misunderstood. So I will send in the clowns and drinks are on me.
