"Not My Circus" is a figurative work of art. I began this painting with a contour drawing in my studio. Her demure attitude contrasts with everything around her from her amusing costume to the brilliantly colored background. The artwork is on heavyweight paper which I had mounted on gallery wrap canvas. It is ready for display with no framing required. The sides are white.
The title refers to this Polish Proverb:
Every time you feel yourself being pulled into other people’s nonsense, repeat these words: “not my circus, not my monkeys.”
