Dancing and Lanterns

The painter's dance. 
From easel to table to floor. 
With brush in hand
To the sound of music
Or silence.

Almost completed "Lest We Forget" by Carole Reid 2014

70 nuns in a row
And then we made lanterns at Johanne Galipeau's for the Magic Lantern Procession Johanne is organizing in December at a park near our house.

Rara Avis: Drawing Challenge 152

Rara Avis: rare bird 
Host: Eric of CERULEAN.  

How rare is the phrase "rara avis"? Not that rare it seems. I discovered restaurants, bookstores, lodges,  bands, a jewellery shop and other businesses calling themselves Rara Avis. 







My husband often says I'm a "rara avis" (now that I think about it he calls me a strange bird, but let's pretend it's rare bird) so here's the "rara avis Carolotta"!





For more feathers of the "Rara Avis" fly on over to Eric's blog CERULEAN. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
