Emmaline, acrylic on wood panel, 6 x 6

Emmaline had big news--HUGE, in fact. The circus train had just arrived at the station, and she watched as a red-nosed clown jumped off the still-moving caboose to post a notice on the bulletin board. Emmaline pushed her way forward to read it. There it was! Tryouts for local circus extras would begin at nine the next morning.
She had to find her best friend, Aloysius. Emmaline knew how much it meant to him to join the circus one day. On top of that, he had the costume, and he'd practiced so hard for the high wire.
Tomorrow might be the day.
