is my entry for this month's Nibblefest Art Contest (NFAC), the theme
for February being 'Better Late Than Never", in which we get to pick a
theme we missed in 2016. I missed last Sept's "Balancing Act", so I
chose to do a portrait in tribute to the classic vintage film star,
Buster Keaton. Painted in oils upon a 6"x 10" upcycled wood plaque,
this unique original is signed and ready to hang.
missed the Nibblefest theme "Balancing Act" back in September, so I was happy for
the chance to try again. I chose to paint the late, great silent film
star, Buster Keaton, because he was so well known for his physical
comedy, or Slapstick. He threw himself around constantly in his movies,
performing ever increasingly complicated acrobatic stunts -- at times
downright dangerous ones...! Often involving automobiles and/or trains
-- it was a 'balancing act' for sure with all the fined-tuned timing it
surely took to pull off. And always accompanied by the most deadpan
expression, earning himself the nickname, "The Great Stone face".
