When I paint clowns, I think of them as angelic visitors. Dressed in ornate and colorful clothes, containing every color in the rainbow, they heal us with laughter, as we are delighted by their foolish acts. Through their performances, we are led to transformation, to treat all with respect, and to serve in our community.
This clown is dressed in a beautiful quilted blouse, striped pantaloons, an ornate collar, and a pointed hat with a blue pompom, ready for his performance. His pets are also dressed in matching hats and collars for the stage. He gently pets his dogs as the group anticipates going out into the ring.
