Sunday Three for One

On Sundays I like to spend the whole day in my studio collaging with Ava, and I enjoy tring to meet as many art challenges in one piece as I possibly can. It's just something I like to do to stretch myself. Since tomorrow is my youngest son Wesley's birthday, his card became part of the project today too. This week at Gothic Arches the theme is Favorite Movies. Since I'm such a movie lover, I don't have one favorite movie; I have one for just about every genre, but I do have a favorite movie title: "The Invisible Circus." Today the Sunday Postcard Art challenge is "Circuses." Originally, I'd planned to name my blog "The Invisible Circus," but I discovered an art group called "Embellished Circus," and I thought these names were too similar, so the blog became "Amusing Muses" instead. The clown image came from one of my vintage Burr McIntosh Monthy magazines and I hand colored it with Prismacolor pencils. I put him on a background of watercolor and acrylic sponging. I chose an elephant to remind my son of all the times we watched Dumbo togther. Every time poor little Dumbo was separated his mother and visited her in her cage, and she would hug him through the bars with her trunk, Wesley and I would cry and cry. We haven't watched Dumbo together in a long time, but I bet he remembers. Tomorrow Wesley turns twenty. Happy Birthday, Wes-man. I love you.
