It looks kind of like Bill Murray. No clues about the artist but this clown has been painted at least twice as there’s another one on Instappraisal https://instappraisal.com/appraisal/oil-painting-canvas-clown-original-a...
Okay, I found a print of the painting your painting is based on
https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/vintage-julian-ritter-skelter-pri...
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julian_Ritter
Yours is a copy of Ritter’s, either someone painting for fun or to sell as decor.
The original Julian Ritter clown like yours was called Skelter and came with another clown painting called Helter.
