I read Water For Elephants last year and fell in love with Rosie. I started on this canvas a couple of months ago, but you know how life goes...one thing after another kept stopping me from finishing it. To top it off Helena had a painting mishap and her cup of rinse water somehow exploded and landed alllllll over this canvas...unfortunately it was a dark blue paint that she was using so I had to re paint the pale yellow background...that put off finishing for another couple of weeks.. either way I'm done and I think my favorite part of it are the circus peanuts I made out of paper clay:) If you get a chance to read this book you should! it's such a treat. have a great night.
