All I can say is that I’m very glad I can earn even when I’m in hospital, as I was again just before Christmas. No, don’t ask — I’m too bored with answering!

I hope you’ve had a glorious festive Christmas and will have a splendid New Year!

I can think of nothing new or funny to say about no computer so here’s a clown I made earlier! When I’m up and running again, I promise to reply to your comments. I have been able to read some of your posts but the like button fails to load most of the time.

Take care and keep laughing!

I have filched a painting from my late mother and made it my own. Benedicta painted her clown in her teens — not that they were known as such an entity when she was growing up in the 1920s and ’30s. I say filched but I inherited it!

To create a different colour palette for him. I used several 2 Lil’ Owls textures from the Confetti series.

To set the whole thing off, I used another 2 Lil’ Owls texture from the Distressed series for a background on which you can see the faint markings of a musical score.

The Dancer and the Pierrot is a digital collage I adapted about three or four years ago from one of Jules Cheret’s posters, Third Panel: la Pantomime, printed in 1900. I layered it with a couple of my background textures and various elements scanned from my theatre archive.

I view it as a Christmas piece but it would work equally well for any occasion if you were buying the greeting card or postcard.

Enjoy!

I have always adored the ephemera that attaches to the Circus.  I have never, mind you, enjoyed visits to the ring – in my childhood I found them boring or hated the way they treated the animals, and the slapstick never made me laugh – but give me an old ticket stub or the image of a clown and I’m yours for life!

This collage comprises a mixture of elements, some from my own collection (textured background and boy pierrot), a couple from The Graphics Fairy (lady on horse and cyclist) and a couple from Wikimedia (circus poster and aerialists).
