Celestial Circus

This is the page that started out as a collage for Collage Play with Crowabout but became a card for Sunday Postcard Art for the "Mystic" challenge and was then "recycled" for Mixed Media Monday. Actually, the crescent moon is a recycled piece. I originally painted it for this past Friday's "Imagine" collage, but it didn't quite work there, so I used it here. When I started "Celestial Circus" I wanted it to have an eastern theme and for the girl to serenely emerge from a lotus blossom, but she was determined to join the circus! And she refused to wear the black and white striped tights I made for her. I suppose she IS a little too Bob Fosse for yoga, after all.

Hey sometimes we are just TOLD what to do in our artwork, aren't we and obviously this lovely and exuberant woman wanted to dance on the moon under the big top. So glad you let her loose on the world.
