Market Painting and The Sisterhood of the Travelling Elephant Top

Hellooooo, Bold Soul!

Hope this finds you with rainbows a-shimmering in your heart, that you’re delighted as well as delightful. I am grateful for a cool, calm day, and a just-finished happy weekend with my shining son home for a few sweet hours.

This past Sunday I had my art stall at the Mitcham Village Market [see right ‘side bar’ for upcoming dates, South Aussie Bold Souls]. What a delightful morning! The sun was warm, lovely people were flowing through, and folk were most kind about my art demo, of which this is result:


I built it up from the border and the fish at the bottom at 10am, gradually moving up the scene. By about 1pm I was painting on the colours. Thanks to all the kids who came and chatted to me! Adults, too :)
Special thanks to Keyisha (sp?) and Mailey who offered ideas that I incorporated. I wonder if the Bold Souls looking at this can find our Santa, parkour boy, pirate building, chandelier factory and Wizard building lasering the bird – or if they cover their eyes at the boyfriend/girlfriend! Haha!

Remember this? Here ^^^ is the picture from my post about Christmas Day, in which I bought a cotton top with elephant borders [incidentally the previous time my son was coming to town].

My friend and mentor Tammy Vitale admired the top in the comments section. The top is lightweight and easily posted, and I wondered if we could do A Sisterhood of the Travelling Elephant Top. Remember the movies about the 4 friends called The Sisterhood/s of the Travelling Pants? Long story short: Last week I posted the top to Tammy with her prize from my recent Giveaway! Surprise, Tammy! [… Or actually maybe “Spoiler, Tammy!” Oh dear. I wonder if this post will reach your inbox first or if the parcel will arrive?] If it’s anything like in the movie, the top will magically fit; if not, then someone will be found who can give it a wear! Will you post it on if any other Bold Souls want to play?
If you want to help make this A Thing…
