At the 26th Annual Arizona Renaissance Festival area there is a section where the English Group has built their own village.  Over the years I have watched them create their 16th Century European Village of Fairhaven just as it would have been done in medieval times.

In this picture I am sharing an image of a mother dressed in period attire along with her child sleeping the a basket at her feet.   The original image is one of mine and the beautiful watercolor is from contributing artist, Joyce.

On a side note, I just returned from a week away visiting New Orleans during the Jazz Festival and exploring the city with my wonderful sisters. I’ll be posting up images from the trip soon.

On the Threshold of Success - Horse or Man
On the Threshold of Success – Horse or Man

Will the success be that of man or horse. Who will win this challenge? From the eyes of this spotted pony, one would think he would be the victor. Who is on the threshold of success?

The excitement of the rodeo is the anticipation of success or failure as the cowboys tackle their challenge.  As seen by the set of the young man’s face he is indeed in the midst of that anticipation.

While in New York City…  I [LOVE] New York City.   I had the luck to come across four young street dancers who entertained the crowd for quite some time.  The young lady to the left and the tall Michael Jackson type in the center were the highlights of the group with their sharp stepping and quick feet.  I don’t think the little lady in red ever lost the big infectious smile on her face.  I found myself clapping and smiling just a broadly.
