I always loved the circus especially the
ones that were in the tents. When Barnum & Bailey would come to town, it was one of my favorite times of the year. The big tent would
have three separate rings with so much action a person didn't know which one to watch first. The excitement of the trapeze acts,
the clowns and the jugglers were all favorites. However, it was watching the beautiful horses going round and round that ring performing
their tricks that inspired me to do a watercolor of the horses and clown.
