“People see what they want to see. And in most cases, what they are told to see.” – The Night Circus.

This piece was so much fun to create! My friend, Miranda, challenged me to make something using her image of a tight rope walker. I had some circus ephemera laying around and had been looking for a way to use the clowns and seal that were drawn by my late grandma. I found out about two years ago that my grandma had been a bit of an artist and, while I felt some pressure to do her justice, it was really exciting to use her work.

This, along with the rest of my collection are up at Sigillo Cellars in old town Snoqulamie through the rest of October.
