Meet Zelda

Zelda to the Rescue, collage/acrylic, 6 x 6
Elizabeth W. Seaver

Maybe you remember Zorah to the Rescue several posts ago.  Well, Zelda is Zorah's baby sister who has been promoted (since Zorah got sold and flew off to be a superhero in someone else's back yard.)  Zelda defends the defenseless, defeats the previously un-defeatable and is the mistress of all she surveys.

She looks a little nervous here, as if it might be her first day on the job which, by the way, comes with a lifetime supply of birdseed, 401k plan and comprehensive health care.  Life is good.

Zelda's magic cape will fly her over to The Workhouse in Lorton, VA, for a showing of the artist's work which may be viewed May 9 through June 3rd in the Vulcan Gallery in Building 16.  If you are in the area, stop by the opening on Second Saturday, May 12, and say hello to Zelda and Frieda and Ferdinand and Orville and me.  There may be a few other birds you haven't met yet on my blog.

Zelda promises to demonstrate her cape's marvelous trick of flying, even when she is standing still.  Believe me, such demo is not to be missed.

Je serais bien venue volontiers vous rendre visite si vous n'étiez pas aussi loin... Un rendez-vous manqué avec votre art me chagrine, cependant je vous souhaite plein de bonnes choses et de belles rencontres.
gros bisous à vous.

That Zelda is a thinker - good for her making plans for her future! If I still lived in the area, I would definitely go by and meet her.
