I haven’t touched my watercolors since the early part of the year, but today I pulled them out to do something cheerful.
This is based on a baby toy I saw a kid playing with on the subway. It was a clown head with a bunch of yarn or something hanging out of the bottom of it, like tentacles. I like clowns precisely because so many people find them disturbing. Interestingly enough, a google image search on “tentacled clown” brings up paintings by John Wayne Gacy and a photo of a harlequin baby, of all things, none of which have tentacles.
By the way, the painting “Sprague Dolly” is up at the CurateNYC website as an entry for possible exhibition and postcard production. You can view it (along with my artist bio) here:
