8 x 10 oil on panel – private collection
Along the Conejos River near the New Mexico border at a fly-fishing cabin of an old friend and master painter/outdoorsman Andy Peters. Just about as good as the western life can get. Of course there is always work to be done.
Wonderful Sophia. Daughter of friends Jeff and Paige Bower.
Henry the Clown tried to hitchhike his way out of town on his escape from the circus he was living in. No one offered Henry a ride and now he is alone and darkness is approaching. He pauses though in revelation on witnessing his very first sunset as a free man. Who knows what tomorrow will bring for our neophyte Henry.
So Henry the clown contemplated the door and has now gone through it out into the world. He is “on the lamb” from the life he was living and is venturing out in the world to see just what it is made of. Stay tuned. We will be right with him through his discoveries, his trials and tribulations, his becoming.
This little painting is the start of a narrative about becoming. About questioning ones self about where in life they are and where they might be headed. Stay tuned as Henry the Clown adventures out into life, loses his innocence and discovers himself.
