One Trick Pony (Juggling)
18" x 24"
Acrylic + Ink
"One Trick Pony (Juggling)" was inspired by my own fears and feelings that critics might consider me a "One Trick Pony" (ie. an artist whose abilities are limited to one specific thing. In my case that one thing would be my bears).
The painting also features the bear juggling red spheres (or dots). The "Red Dot" is a symbol used in art galleries to announce that an artwork has been sold.
To sum it up, what I'm saying is: 'Sure, I might be a one trick pony, but at least that one trick is my ability to handle these red dots'.
"One Trick Pony (Juggling)" was displayed at Corey Helford Gallery's booth at Scope Art Fair, New York 2012.
