29 Faces in September

Face #2
I'm posting a second 29 faces today since I am behind and want to catch up.
This is really a WIP...I've got a bit more to do but I'm going to have to think
on it a bit because I have no idea where to go next!
It needs to be unified somehow, and the girl (Esme) needs to stand out a bit more.

Esme has run away to join the circus, but now is having second thoughts about it.
She didn't realize the circus would be so . . . well. Scary. And brightly manic.
Her little cat is a bit frightened.

Visit Ayala Art here to read more about 29 Faces and to join up!

I'll be finishing this tomorrow since it's my entry in the IA Wheels challenge.
I'm taking a bit of a liberty, since the only wheel is the Ferris Wheel in the background.


  1. I love Esme and I can't wait to see what this looks like completed, very cool details in the background too.

  2. This is an amazing piece, Magpie. You really captured the sensory overload that a circus can be in contrast to the frightened little runaway girl. Blessings!

  3. I love the world you've created for Esme- fabulous take on the circus, and beautiful painting too!

  4. This is a lovely piece, It looks like you have put alot of work into it. I love all the layers :)


I always love to hear what you have to say! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!
