Posted by nrhatch in Art & Photography, Happiness, Humor, Life Balance.

Clowns may be small or tall . . . with mindful balance they fail to fall!

It is ironic that Red Skelton was such a great clown on stage and his paintings of clowns show talent there too. Even more ironic are the clown paintings of Charles Manson.

Red Skelton knew how to clown around . . . didn’t realize the same could be said of Manson. Isn’t it ironic?

I know that so many people have a terrible clown phobia!

I blame Chuckie. 😀

This is perfect and clowns do often wear red. Bravo! 🙂

They have to be careful that it doesn’t clash with their noses . . . or their toeses.

You wild woman! It’s these little things that make me lmao!!

nrhatch - May 15, 2011

Thanks, Amy! You made ME laugh! 😀

I find clowns a bit freaky 🙂

nrhatch - May 15, 2011

Especially if a clown shows up unexpectedly . . . in my room in the middle of the night! 😀

Good one. I’m glad to see I’m not the only one who sometimes thinks clowns are creepy.

nrhatch - May 15, 2011

That seems to be the general consensus. 😀

Stephen King is responsible for a lot of the clown/balloon phobia because of his book “It.” Those parts of the book did creep me out, but the fear hasn’t stayed with me. However, I’ve never been a huge fan of circus clowns – except maybe Emmet Kelly – he was wonderful and always made me smile. I do love actor clowns, though, and comedians, but now I’m getting conmpletely off the subject, so I will shut up!

Boy, is my face red. . .

nrhatch - May 15, 2011

Bwahaha . . . are you blushing like that rose in your avatar? 😉

I’ve never read IT (or much of anything that King has written). Real life is horrific enough for me without self-induced nightmares from consuming terrifying brain food.

great colour contrasts.

nrhatch - May 16, 2011

That’s what I love about this photo ~ the red against the blue of the sky and the white of the church.

This is a wonderful clown photo! and red!!! nice.

nrhatch - May 16, 2011

Thanks, Cecelia.

Love the red but not so much the clowns. After teaching kindergarten a couple of years I found out just how many kids are afraid of clowns.

nrhatch - May 16, 2011

Do you suppose it’s their “masked” faces?

We watched an episode of The Mentalist with clowns ~ one of which was the murderer. It’s a bit disconcerting to look into so many faces that look “the same.”

I don’t love clowns, but I do love the contrast of red and blue here. Great photo.

nrhatch - May 16, 2011

Thanks, Lisa. I wouldn’t want a clown jumping out to surprise me from a dark alley. But in bright daylight, they seem more fun than foul. 😀

11. jannatwrites - May 17, 2011

I love the red in the picture.

BUT, Clowns are a bit creepy to me – their faces are either painted in exaggerated smiles or frowns, which are both disturbing. I’m not afraid of clowns…unless they are on stilts. AAAAHHHH!

nrhatch - May 17, 2011

You would not have enjoyed seeing this clown then . . . he TOWERED over us!
