This original piece by Las Vegas Artist Jerold Frederick Sowles AKA Rhinovangogh was first shown at the Geogertown Gallery in Washington DC. It is a colorful depiction of an angry and/or distracted Harlequin who is either sending a message or letting something important slip from his grasp. The distant hills of Northern Virgina are across the Potomac River to the west. The seemingly unreachable empty boat represents lonliness and isolation as it floats far out in the middle tethered to a green glass fishing float . A rare Red Crowned Crane symbolizing luck, longevity and fidelity lofts simultaneously with the yellow balloon. The green fishing bouy float also exists in Rhinovangogh’s first painting of model Hyacinth Yun (1997) in a work titled “Marooned” and suggests a strong link to her.
