Carnival Time

The beautiful picture below is Rex's 2013 Proclamation.  The Title, All Things Great and Small.  The artist, Shelley Hesse.  I love it and it certainly puts me in the Mardi Gras spirit.


If you enjoy this sort of thing and find yourself in the NOLA area, I highly recommend a brief stop at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts to check out the Mardi Gras exhibits where you will be treated to some lovely MG themed artwork, including a few incredible "Proclamations" from years ago.

And, in case you were curious, here is my all-time favorite, courtesy of Auseklis Ozols:


My favorite part - the kiddos in the ladders - of course - it pains me to think that I only have a year or two more of ladder usage at parades.  I think Lucy has totally moved into the painter/step ladder phase  this year.
