Tommy the Clown

I was thinking about how my paintings are a bit like the clown paintings of the 60’s and 70’s. So I thought I’d do a clown painting.  I started one and it pretty much sucked. My old friend Mike telkulve was nudging me about doing that painting I promised for his recording studio, so I started looking thru his Facebook images, which brought me to his brother Tom, another old friend… And in his photos was a great image of him in clown makeup.  So I switched back to my clown painting, pretty much wiped it out and painted Tommy the Clown. 

Mike, I’ll get something for you soon.
