WORDFUL WEDNESDAY

Photobucket

My son, Eli started his art classes again, and it inspired him to paint this the other night. I'm not sure why, since he's never painted clowns before.

If you saw this in person, the eyes look very realistic.

Borderline creepy.

If you have a fear of clowns, this would be the LAST thing you'd want staring at you in the face!

Be sure to visit 7 Clown Circus for Wordful Wednesday

What a great artist! I do agree, borderline creepy - not a huge clown fan. If my son brought home one like this I would totally compliment him on his hard work and talents, then hide that thing because I wouldn't want it watching me when I walk by it every day, lol!

Laurencita said...

yes, you are right, borderline creepy. Your son is talented..

Susie said...

That is creepy! Art is supposed to invoke feelings so, it is really good:-)

Beth in NC said...

Such a talent! Isn't it strange that clowns are creepy when they are supposed to be "fun" for kids?

Hootin' Anni said...

Your son is very talented and yes, those eyes are creepy. luckily, i'm not afraid of clowns, so that art would hang in a frame on my wall. take care.

Kelli @ RTSM said...

That is a very good painting. But I'm glad you said borderline creepy, because it kind of weirded me out a little:)

Lauren said...

jen@odbt said...

Very cool. I'm not a fan of clowns and have to agree...I don't like the way he's looking at me.

Veronica Lee said...

Momisodes said...

He is definitely a budding artist! I love all the detail he's incorporated.

chili pepper said...

Yeah, clowns are creepy... but good drawing. I am lousy at all but stick figures... but my kids make up for my failures in this area.

Michelle said...

utmomof 5 said...

He is so talented but I gotta tell ya -- I hate clowns. That couldn't stay in my house for too long :)

Marice said...

Helene said...

Wow, that's a beautiful drawing! But I do agree that it's borderline creepy...I think it's because the eyes do look realistic!

Darcie said...

Funny what you mentioned about the eyes, because when I first looked at it I thought it was one of those cutouts with eyes looking through it. Amazing!

Brenda said...

Its more interesting than creepy, looks like he might have some talent!

Sara said...

Yep.. I am scared to DEATH of clowns, but I do have to say that he's got talent! Good for him!

WOW! What a talent! Can't wait to see more of his art!

Upstatemomof3 said...

The eyes look incredibly real. I wondered if there was a picture behind the eyes or something. I'm impressed.

Muthering Heights said...

Uh oh...did he see the movie "IT?"

Stephanie said...

He & Me + 3 said...

That is very cool, but yes if I were scared of clowns that would freak me out. Very talented though. Great job eli

Kim said...

Very talented. I agree that clowns are either cute or creepy I think this one it on the cute side!

melodyofamom said...

No fear of clowns here. I think it's an excellent painting!

Savvy Gal said...

Actually the eyes look quite real even from the image. : )

Buckeroomama said...

His clown drawing is pretty good! Actually, it looks a bit like those cut-out clowns where you stand behind them and have your photo taken, except in this case, you only see the eye instead of the whole face. :) You're right, the eyes (especially the right one!) are so real-looking!

Puanani503 said...

I agree, he is really talented.Yes, I think clowns are really creepy..maybe I shouldn't have watched the movie "it" is that right?

Cathy said...
