Great Aunt Kitty...

Not so long ago my Grandad sadly passed away at the grand old age of 96.
He lived the most remarkable life, and had many tall tales to tell, especially as he was one of twelve children, and he was the only boy.
This mixed media painting has the words
'Great Aunt Kitty Ran Away To The Circus'
written around the edge of the canvas.
She's a stilt walking rabbit trainer don't you know?!?
(I think my imagination ran away with me slightly here!)
I've painted this as part of my preparations for the Mrs B Adventures In Abstraction Weekender Workshop at the wonderful Hope and Elvis.
I can't believe the workshop on Sunday 4th December has already sold out!
Thank you for booking places, I'm very excited indeed!
There are some places left for Saturday 3rd December, I know it's a long ways away but I can't wait!
