Aloysius the Orphan, Original Painting


A lonely boy that no one ever loved, Aloysius sits alone in his two year old mind and body. He is an odd one, born in England by a single mum, she deserted him when he came out looking like an elf and miniature too. He traveled as an orphan in a local circus, to only be put on display amongst a ravaging audience. He only knew love from the sideshow family like Mina the bearded lady and the Wolf Brothers. 

This original painting is from my Skeleton Krew Collection™. The painting is done in all black and white gouache paint on an antique Victorian photograph.

The photograph comes in a wooden gray frame with glass and has lovely detailing in silver. The frame is fairly old with some aging on the corners and some of the silver is wearing away. There is a hook for hanging but has some slight rusting. The painting comes signed and numbered on the back. The frame is aproximedity 4" wide x 5" high. The live painted area is 3" w x 4" h.

You can now take home Aloysius the Orphan, he is featured at Red Heart 13! Won't you give him a home??!!! This portrait would go great in any cabinet of curiosities or can even be hung with your original art collection.
