Acrylic on Canvas Board:  Did this from an old black and white photo in a book I had years ago.  If anyone happens to know who the photographer is I would like to give credit.

Great motion, you can just about feel that this man works for a Circus. His well trimmed body and ease of movement like he has done this move before, but all moves are important in  his life. He must keep his audience entertained.

I do not know who this man is either but you created a wonderful life for him.

Funny you should mention the circus! If my memory serves me well, I think the subject in the old photo was a gypsy performing in a gypsy circus.

Then obviously you got his essence in some of your Art because I saw it right away. This was a performance and you made it into a work of art, absolutely beautiful and yet elegant at the same time. You really did a good job on that piece of art and I am so glad you shared it with us.

My quirk is I listen to Gypsy music, it has such a wonderful beat and movement. I cannot understand one word they say but I love listening to (Bela Lakatos?) and dancing around even though I really do not dance.

Not quite the same we have a Gypsy Circus that visits once a year. They are magical in their one tent show and survive town to town with a couple of animals a few people and a High Wire Act. It is still a lot of fun to see.
