Water for Elephants



Was anyone as enchanted with the book "Water for Elephants" as I was? I loved all the circus history. I haven't seen the movie yet, but I can't stop thinking of the circuses of long ago. We visit a circus museum several years ago in Baraboo (sp?) Wisconsin. It was very interesting to me. The circus people were a culture all their own!

Water for Elephants inspired these two paintings, "In the Spotlight" and "Behind the Scenes". I hope to list them on Ebay later tonight. The link to my Ebay auctions is at the top of this page.
