My ties to a tutu

Hi folks, I had a lovely weekend at “The Oasis” – my studio retreat. Took some photo’s on my iphone. Some are a little grainy, but I don’t mind the feel.


I bought the blue tutu at a charity shop some weeks ago. Tutu’s not only tie into my memories of ballet, but also of a favorite Toulouse Lautrec work  The Clowness Cha-U-Kao. But then I also appreciate her gray hair and fuller figure too…

If I was much younger and much much fitter I’d love to be part of a circus. It was something I worked towards when I was about 10…

I find there is something vaguely reminiscent of this painting in the pics I took, I hope you do too – otherwise my vague allusion to the theme for today is just a little bit cactus.

    • Thanks for the feedback on the meme. Studio retreat is in a small town, which is struggling a bit – too far away from the big towns, so house prices were/are very cheap. I’ve had to do a lot of work to it, and plenty more to do, but I’m glad I bought it. Mum and I had some good times there too, so fond memories. Another bonus – no cat hair! (Knew you’d appreciate that – lol)
