Aloysius, collage/acrylic, 6 x 6 x 3
Elizabeth W. Seaver
Aloysius loved the circus. To his parents' dismay, he disdained ordinary little bird clothes. No t-shirts and jeans for Aloysius. No, he rode his bicycle all around town wearing tights and sequined spandex.
He dreamed of being discovered by circus scouts. He imagined that when he was begged to join that traveling band of sparkling acrobats, he'd be so accomplished a rider, they'd invite him to pedal the tightrope.
