More and more I love circus themed art . These are fun paintings to do ! So much of a circus is fantasy anyways . This last painting I finished was of monkeys at the circus. They are monkeys that are in charge and cracking the whip ! Themed paintings are my favorite paintings to create as it is such a freedom of whimsical expression . A lot of artist paint what they see instead of using their imagination from what is within . I use images as a ideas and then I create my own paintings from what I want to be my own .
