The Jester DAnu…


Summer is a wonderful time here,  in Quebec (in other parts of the world I suppose is the same but given the long, long winter, when the summer comes, man! are we “Quebecois”  glad!)
Everybody is wearing shorts and sandals – even if sometimes the temperatures are not that warm – and if you work as a portrayer-jester (as I do, in the summertime – Remember? Janis Joplin’s “Summertime”? and Ella Fitzgerald’s?) you’ll see a lot of people jogging, walking, skating, bycicling around the Lac of Nations…
Yesterday I was trying to make a portrait or two (you can see what I did right here) and my friend Raymond and his Zoo en Folies (4 parrots) came along… and then also Stephane, the accordionist (the one who’s playing amelie poulin’s musical theme and other «Paris-Montmartre» tunes … Some tourists and some pickpockets and a hill or two (maybe a cathedral like Sacre Coeur) and we would have been a mini-Montmartre, for real… I also took a picture or two, in my portrayer-jester costume, with Murphy, the real name of “Polly” the big, colorful parrot…

Amelie – a younger version of Isabelle Adjani… and then Vanessa, the celtic type with hypnotic blue eyes and the skin of an Irish girl…

And finally. Murphy and I… a complementary and colorful pair of artists…

  2. I like the Vanessa painting. It sounds like fun doing the outdoor portraits (if not raining).

    • Yeap, bill: if not raining, if not wind blowing, if not too much sun… But yes, it<s always fun… if interested by my portraits go to http://idanu.wordpress.com/ The text is in French but I translate the images into English… Have a nice, productive day!

  3. Reblogged this on Van Gogh and I and commented:

    Still true, that one, I’m still somewhat of a jester…a clown…
