A couple of weeks ago my hubby took me to see Cirque Du Soleil's IRIS at the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles. Oh my heavens - AMAZING!
I was so taken by all the art that surrounded me. It was everywhere!
The costumes, the set, music, lights, make-up, the acrobats, dancers, writing, directing, cinema, humor, imagination, detail, the theater itself...so much.

So this Friday I wanted to work on some pages in my art journal about my night. I wanted to use the program from that evening. I used the paper for the background & pictures of some of the performers to highlight. I loved the girl on the right side with the white & black stripes. If you have ever seen Cirque, then you know everything is over the top & sometimes pretty quirky. She was exactly that. Yes, she has a huge spinning movie reel around her waist! :)
I love working in my journal. It is so freeing and pressure free. I don't worry about what I am creating and just try to silence my little inner critic diva. She reminds me quite often that I have a lot to learn...but, isn't that part of the fun? It is a place to practice, experiment, learn, grow, release, and relax.
Have you seen any of the Cirque shows?
If you live close to Los Angeles or come for a visit...IRIS' permanent home is the Kodak Theater (well for 10 years at least I read). It is a great show!
Here is a little clip....
Come join the fun & creativity at Paint Party Friday & Sneak Peek Friday. I am posting late...again. Somehow my "Fridays" become "Saturday mornings!" :)
Have a Happy Day!
