Today is the day I can now show the finished bears&boxes piece I have been working on. The concept, provided by the recipient, turned out to be a very fitting name as well.
The front of the was one of those situations that could succeed or fail if you don’t hold your mouth right. I held my breath quite a lot.
This slightly angled photo shows one of my favorite details of this piece.
Here’s a close up of it – a sign for tickets!
The back – with all the tiny raised painted stars.
Here’s the left side of the open box – with various acts performing.
This photo shows the tightrope walkers (potion bottles) and the circus wagon with various ‘fairy’ animals.
The right side of the box has it’s own performers
– including the fairy Yellophants with wings
and the aerialists that are also fairies.
Here’s the fairy bear that occupies center stage in the
Fairy Halloween Circus.
I decided to add glitter to her wings and in a few other places throughout the circus.
Here’s the complete box open with all the performers from tightrope walkers to monkey gymnast to flying Yellophants and a fairy bear.
It was fun being under the big top!
