Tightrope Walker 3: Blindfolded

Elizabeth W. Seaver, collage/acrylic, 6 x 6

The third in my series of "How Might You Cross a Tightrope?" birds,  this fellow definitely crosses the high wire with panache (and just a little cheating).  He does love the cheering crowds, the music and, most especially, the spotlight.

Thanks to all of my blogging buddies for your supportive comments on my last post, and welcome to my newest followers.  I'm going to get back to the fun of visiting all of your blogs after too long a hiatus.  See you here and there!

Hehe heh. Great composition, very stable, very dynamic! Very charismatic this bird eh? :)

Glad you're back. Love the new colour of your blog. Will you do a trapeze artist, please? I hope to find somewhere near Houston to learn to swing on the trapeze before I turn 60! A few years yet.

Hi, Everyone:

I'm glad he makes you smile. He's got the personal style and bravery I admire (and wish I could emulate more often!) Nice thing about a painting, it can have secret pieces of you in it!

Thanks, Andrew. It's always nice when the silly and whimsical has a grasp on the foundations as well.

Hi, Yan: I'm glad you like the new blog. I feel like I'm operating in a new world, so I thought I'd change this up, too. Who knows, I may change it every week!

I think a trapeze artist is a great idea for a painting. You should get right busy on doing it! When does the circus come to town? Perhaps they will teach you how...

Thanks for your visit, Country Mouse Studio. I really appreciate your comments and support.
