It's a Jolly Holiday

Less than a month before I get to Disney it up again!  This time dressing up is mandatory.
Here's my inspiration.  No I'm not going as a penguin. :)
I have her black and white look but I still get to be Mary!
Yes, I have the hat.  Check my insta for my Mary selfie from two years ago.
This is the most paint I have put on my work but between you and me I was NOT going to cut out that many leaves, let alone paste them on.  My FB friends encouraged the Carousel in the background and I love it.  This work was sold and will be put up for auction for a local youth theater program.  I am so proud!

Have a jolly holiday,


Tightrope Girl

I love Disney and Disneyland as well.  I'm California born and raised so Disneyworld hasn't happened yet.  I don't mind if I skip it.
What I love in Disneyland is the Haunted Mansion.  And the tight rope girl has always resonanted with me.  We do our best as girls to be perfect and we know we are one fraying rope from destruction.  Be it real or imaginary.
So this is more like a self-portrait.  I feel put in her situation so often.
As always she and Mr. Crocodile are primarily paper.  Yes, even the the teeth and frayed rope.  I went with painted leaves.  It felt right.

Hurry back,
