This is a recent art video showing my Shy Clown artwork. This video is the start of a new series I plan to do called Then & Now where I go back and find an old artwork from 5 to 10 years ago and completely redo it. It’s something fun for me, and good practice. And, hopefully it will be enjoyable for you to watch.
Enjoy this first video!
It has been a while since I’ve posted one of my artworks, and this one may seem a bit familiar to anyone that has watched this blog over the year. This is a digital painting portrait where I’ve recently added some updates. I also have the black and white version without the clown make-up and hair ribbon.
This portrait was actually a redo of a painting I did about 8 years ago. Sometimes I enjoy going back to old pictures and ideas and completely redoing them to see if I’m able to improve them. I made a video showing the old version in comparison to this new one, and I’ll make sure to add that to a blog post later today.

If I had to pick my favorite artwork I’ve done, I would probably choose this digital painting of a young lady dressed as a clown. There is something I connect with , but I also just like clowns. I always have.
What is she hiding behind all of that make-up? In my artwork clowns usually represent that awkwardness that so many of us sometimes feel; those moments were we feel like we don’t belong, or we want to hide behind a mask. Or maybe we desperately want that extra attention. Sometimes it doesn’t have to mean anything at all, and I just enjoy the bright colors.
