Comedy and Tragedy BABY Heads


I have a friend . Her name is " Hey You " . Actually her name is Lisa , but we seem to call each other Hey You
I get mad at her because she's always giving me presents . I have a hard time accepting gifts , but her gifts are so cool { which makes it easier .... ha ha }
Comedy and Tragedy BABY heads ....... Don't you love these ? !
It's so perfect for me because I'm either crazy happy or really crabby , and .... of course .... because .....
they are BABY HEADS

Hey You ............ thanks !!!

Happy Easter !

creepy clown art

 I have a story to tell you .... or ... actually ,,,,, really a question .... why are artists NUTS ???? why am I NUTS ???
Today .... I painted a clown face on MDF board { with acrylics and Inktense } ,[ which took me all day to paint ] ...... then I cut it out on my saw , took photos , put it on Etsy ..... the clown above is the clown I put on Etsy
So I looked at it all day , and decided I didn't like him
SO ...... after dinner , just now .... I took him off of Etsy , and then without even thinking ..... I grabbed him off the wall , and totally repainted him
this is the repainted clown .......

I like THIS one much more ...... He reminds me  of a guy in an old horror movie .... Carnival of Souls { movie STILL creeps me out } You have to see this movie , it's so good
anyway ... now I like THIS clown so much more that I don't want to sell him .... yet
OH
this is why artists have no money . when people wonder what I do all the time { where is SHE ? , does she EVER go out ? }
yes dear neighbors and friends ... this is what I do
and I DO think I am nuts ... a very weird , very odd ..... old cat lady artist
