Three Muses: Circus

I seem to be doing a lot of circus/carnival themed pieces lately. One of my favorite themes!
Here's the latest. Image credits: beth rimmer, divas d'este, dover.  Again, I've done this without a background; I'm not lazy, just experimenting some more.

This is a five star piece, Sherry, so loud applause from me. By the way, I also like experimenting with 'white' space .... I love it.

First of all, I love the floating effect. Secondly, the circus troupe made me shudder a little because one of my Grandma jobs is to sit close to the trampoline to make sure there aren't too many little people jumping at the same time. I usually end up hoarse from yelling. I would be hoarser still if I had to keep all those circus people in line.
Great artwork and imagination, Sherry, and thanks for pointing us in the direction of a new idea.
