Poppies, on Ebay This was painted on a beechwood "canvas"with 3/4 inch sides. I thought I would try it out and it was quite nice to paint on. Sides painted black, looks great:)

Cirque de Soleil is coming to town next week! We have got tickets to see Alegria. Very excited. Yep! This is the third show I've seen and each time I've been transported into the weird and wonderful world that they create. The music especially gets me:) The costumes too, oh and did I mention the performers?

So I don't know if you saw my last post or not but I am hosting a "Letter Revival Festival"(hard to know what to call it:) for the next two weeks. If you like receiving interesting mail and don't mind sending a letter ...this is for you! Click on the banner to learn more:) I would be happy if you want to spread the word, you can use this wee banner.

Well, you just keep torturing me with your perfect place to live. Cirque de Soleil! You'd think I'd have a million chances to see it living in some place like Los Angeles but somehow miss it every time. Oh, I am so envious. I can't imagine anything more potentially inspiring for an artist to see and hear and experience.

I love this Letter Revival project. If I was home and had materials to work with available, (and not all that I have going on right now) I would be all over this. I hope you host another one later this summer. What fun!

Thank you for your good wishes Shelagh! I got here safe and sound and will be popping in to visit off and on over the next few weeks. I may not be consistent but I'll be around. Hope you have a lovely couple of weeks and enjoy the Cirque for me too!

You inspired me! I usually e-mail my daughter or call her, but today, I sat down and wrote her a letter!

Thank you!

Lucky you to see Cirque de Soleil! Please write about it afterward!

And yes, I still like to write letters even though my penmanship has become atrocious since we've had MSWord on a computer. And of course I like to receive letters, too!
