Bob, The Train Clown

My brother and sister-in-law, Tony and Mary, celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary by treating their family and friends to a beautiful early autumn afternoon train ride on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad.  It was a lovely afternoon and one of the perks was Bob the clown, one of their friends who entertained the children on the train.  I took a photograph of "Bob" and decided it would make a nice painting.    It is approximately 10" x 8" and is on 140 lb. Arches cold-pressed watercolor paper.

What a wonderful piece, Barb. Bob looks a bit sad though. You must have caught him in a contemplative moment. That said, there are some sad clowns out there, aren't there?
