Death at the Circus (18)

Enlarged detail from Death at the Circus #18
Those familiar with the work of Bill Traylor, will see that I've confiscated his dog image. He was a truly amazing artist. He was born into slavery and, after spending the greater part of his life after emancipation as a sharecropper, he began drawing at age 85. From 1939 to 1939, created almost 1,500 works of art. I love his work and I am a piker in comparison. I have just over a decade to match his output with my new work.
