Clohn Art

My brother is a painter. He calls his work “Clohn Art,” and he recently had a project on a web site called Kickstarter, in which people pledged various amounts to support a public art campaign. For my pledge, I received this canvas in the mail earlier this week. I’m really enjoying it…


  1. I like paintings and I like the ones that border on the abstract as the painter can really go at it without the restrictions of reality.

    I like this canvas, my eye is really drawn to the right side. How did you light this shot? And how big is the canvas?

    The lighting is just interior lighting in that part of the house, which is part fluorescent, part incandescent. I set the white balance on my camera to fluorescent to keep the colors true.

    The canvas is about 12 tall by 18 wide.

    HMMMMMMMMMMMM – OK, you did specifiy wheelbarrowS, so that’s at least 2 more loads…

    And now I can see that’s not a Zia symbol sun (altho maybe that was a bit of inspiration?), as John patiently explained to me (it was hard to tell on the kickstarter video)

    Nice work, John!!!! I’m lovin’ it. And James, where you gonna hang it?

    Now, don’t take this the wrong way, but it’s hanging in the mud room. We took it all over the house but the best spot was near the entrance to the garage – it fits perfectly, the natural light through the doors is excellent and we are able to see it many times throughout the day as we come and go. It really looks fantastic!

  7. James says:

    See, I was just going to say that this painting is hanging in the side entry vestibule, where we can see it every day.

  8. Claire says:

    That’s what I said.

  9. John Lee says:

    only you said mud room, I’m glad you guys like it, I liked it too, didn’t want to send it.

    I think that the combination of colors works so well in this particular painting. It is definitely an eye catcher!
