Gypsy Circus - Print

17" x 24"

The great tradition of the circus... When I was a kid there was the fair and there was the circus and that was just about the highlight of the summer that we looked forward to each year. I can well remember the circus when it came to a nearby town and my father would take us down to see the great show. There was shooting, knife throwing, fire eaters and high wire acts. It was fantastic! What I remember best, was one summer the elephants got loose overnight and got in the local gardens. As I recall, cabbage was the favorite crop to loot. I don't recall if the Gypsy people were a big part of these particular shows or not but I do remember the Gypsies traveling through the area in their colorful caravans, drawn by fine horses, making small encampments as they went on their way to who knows where. It was a different time. Somehow I think we have lost a lot of color from our lives.

Well, who doesn't like sunflowers? A field of sunflowers is mesmerizing. Almost every gardener grows a few sunflowers for the birds but sunflowers are an important farm crop, yielding valuable oils and feed and best of all, sunflowers are beautiful. From the smallest, to the biggest and silliest flowers, they are some of my favorites!
