I just reread The Night Circus, one of my favourite books with the best opening line ever.  In fact I love that line so much I decided to paint it so I could see it everyday because it not only works for the story but for the circus that is life  Grin




I drew the quote freehand in chalk on a black gesso'ed canvas then painted it in. I used thinned artist paint but figured out later that Golden liquid Titanium White was the way to go and have a new respect for the steady hand of sign painters!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Now that I've finished Dr Potter's Medicine Show I'm needing a new book, thanks for that irresistible recommendation!

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!
