Pennywise, But Pound Foolish

Pennywise, But Pound Foolish

L Kenny, Artist (Oil on Stretched Canvas 15"X11") ca. 1965

And what child wouldn't want to wake up to this each day, with its sunny background and vivid use of the color wheel?

But so soon enough, Junior (or Princess) will know the horror that begins as innocently as a day at the circus, only to have the myth of the circus clown, King of the Happy-go-Lucky Buffoons evolve into a dark and menacing specter intent on retribution. The most compelling feature is Kenny's use of a jack-o-lantern mouth which helps to project the angst of the moment.

After all, everyone loves clowns, RIGHT?
