"Circus Pup" Auction item no.3

Oil on 6"x8" Masonite panel. This painting is about 10 years old. Inspired by my love and reverence for circus life. It's such a human endeavor to want to inspire others to share in the wonder and bounty life offers. My mother and her family worked for the circus as tumblers and clowns during the great depression. The photos she has are surreal, it's hard to imagine being five years old and having to work that hard!
