Mint & Chip Ice Cream Clown Cone - Original Painting by Charles Phoenix
18” X 36" X 2” Acrylic on gallery wrap canvas, signed on back, unframed
ICE CREAM CLOWN CONES have always inspired my imagination and made my sweet lovin’ spirit soar. The divine simplicity of an ice cream cone turned upside-down with a few quick pipes of cake frosting to transform into a colorful clown is fun frozen food crafting perfection.
As a kid, I regularly ogled the gaggle of Ice Cream Clown Cones in the freezer case at my neighborhood Baskin Robbins. Usually I settled for scoop of Baseball Nut or, if I was feeling fancy, Daiquiri Ice. Occasionally my parents would splurge and let me have what I really wanted, an Ice Cream Clown Cone. That made me very happy.
These days, a classic Ice Cream Clown Cone is a rare find, unless you’re at SoCal’s most precious old-fashioned ice cream parlor, Fosselman’s in Alhambra, California, where the same family has been making ice cream since 1919. Without fail, a tray full of picture perfect Ice Cream Clown Cones is always there to greet me. I admire them, photograph them, post them and, yes, when I really want to treat myself I eat one. And that makes me very happy!
When spending more time at home became the new normal after the pandemic began, the spirit of creativity moved me. Without skipping a beat, I made a beeline for the art supply. There was no doubt about what I wanted to paint, Ice Cream Clown Cones!
