It seems that clowns aren't seen as something funny and entertaining by children today... but has it ever? Maybe the whole thing just lost it's charm because it wasn't regarded and treated as a form of art. Pretty things can be damaged by commercialism too.
Clowns only creep me out if they have loads of make-up on their face. That, and I watched It when I was little. *shivers* I'd say it is a very good picture, just as the first Neglected Wonderland. Great job!
