ACEO Clown Portrait #162 "Lecile Harris"

ACEO Clown Portrait #162 "Lecile Harris"

ACEO Clown Portrait #162 is a homage to a legendary Rodeo Clown "Lecile Harris" (1928- 2020) from Mississippi, US. Harris got his start in rodeo as a bull rider and then a fill-in bullfighter while still in high school and developed into one of the sport’s most respected funnymen over a career that has spanned more than half a century. At age 52, Lecile said, one “lick” from a bull broke his pelvis, ankle and four ribs, tore up his knee and gave him a concussion. That’s when he switched to clowning full time. People called him as “Dean of Rodeo Clowns/Bullfighters”. He also appeared on TV shows like Hee Haw and films like Walking Tall The Final Chapter.

ACEO Clown Portrait #156 "Sir Winston Pickles"

ACEO Clown Portrait #156 "Sir  Winston  Pickles" 
2 ½” x 3 ½” (64 x 89 mm), 2020

ACEO Clown Portrait #156 is inspired by very unique  a clown comedian "Sir Winston Pickles" from Sebastian, Florida, US. But originally he is from Hull, East Yorkshire, UK. On his website's about page I read "Pickles says he likes to think of his character as a unique fusion of Mr Bean, Willy Wonka and Laurel & Hardy all rolled into one, as all these people have inspired him tremendously and shaped his life." After watching his YouTube clips actually I really liked his dark humor and fantastic clown make-up as a comic. Check it out his YouTube Channel and Instagram page
