Truly a horrible clown -- I'm afraid to go to sleep, now...!

Gah, my brother once dressed up similar to that for the express purpose of terrifying me last time he visited. He waited outside my bedroom window and jumped up and grabbed me when I opened it to find the source of a sound (him throwing rocks). He yanked me out the window and shrieked at me. ...Good memories.

I hate clowns. I mean the supposedly funny ones. But I love the nasty and ugyly kind. So I have to love this one! Great stuff!

Are you sure this isn't the self portrait and not the cool skeleton man? Are you the creepy clown on the inside kinda guy?

I made a quickie poem based on your painting:

horrible clown

a happy-go-lucky smile
paints over a frowny face
these sagging canvas lines
that framing once held straight
the myth of folly took its toll
until the mirth,
it mirthed no more
swept comically into the void
where once a glimmer
gleamed its glow,
laughter, with whom
he once was close,
she looks the other way.

Utau-Inu --

Wow! That's the best ode to a horrible clown I've ever read! Thanks for posting.

I've been practising drawing by, well, trying to draw your pictures by pencil. I just have to ask: how long does this take you? It's taken me a good two hours and it's STILL not working.

Crumbs--
This one and the previous awful clown I posted took about an hour each. The idea was to try and paint them quickly.
