Title: Enchanted Circus

I painted this piece using acrylic on canvas based loosely on a photograph I'd taken of a circus at sunset. I love all things circus and a few years ago I got to go to a circus camp where I learned new skills and met lovely people. I took a photograph of the circus tents one night and have used it as the basis for some paintings since. In this image I tried to capture the feeling of someone stumbling upon an enchanted circus at night. I wanted it to create feelings of excitement and a sense of adventure and magic because that's how practicing circus skills feels to me.
