The Circus is back in town!

The Great Masters are great because you think you know something about them and then you discover a whole new world...

I knew more about Toulouse-Lautrec than just his posters & dancers and all the fun drinking life-style, but I somehow missed the circus series.

When I saw all the pretty horses I thought I'd make a piece for a dear friend of mine in Rio de Janeiro, Priscila or for Ayse, in Istanbul, who also loves horses...

But instead I just made another piece in order to beat my 'pearl anxiety'. I think that Toulouse-Lautrec would've approved: see his photo dressed as a clown - dressing up as a japanese, Scottish, priest & what have you - was one of the things he loved the most, so someone parading with 3 strings of pearls, plastic horses & paintings (his!!!) would be just fine with him.
