Three Muses Challenge 33 - Water

It's Bev's turn this week to host the Three Muses challenge and she has chosen the theme of WATER.

There is no doubt I could have taken many directions in using WATER in my piece, but Marcel Marceau wanted to get in on the act, and so my water turned into rain and poor old Marcel was left on the outside looking in. Mmmmmm.

Great challenge Bev.

Oooops, there goes Mr Marcel again! Looks like he found some more water.

All your previews didn't do this justice, Ann! Marcel has gotten himself into a mess this time, and you've portrayed it brilliantly. Great fun. Standing ovation!

Miming one's way out of a rainstorm. I don't think it's gonna work!! How delicious. Even with all the turmoil of preparing for your big adventure your out-of-the-frame brain is still working overtime. I saw this first at DAQ and loved it. I love it even more at second glance.

What a great idea to use rain in your pieces - it's water, even if we don't always think it like that. I hope poor Marcel's make-up wont start running with all that water. Great pieces!
