MARDI GRAS

 

MARDI GRAS!

 

 

 

PLEASE NOTE, I FEEL COMPELLED TO SHARE THAT MY ONLY APPRECIATION OF MARDI GRAS IS IN THE ARTISTRY OF THE COSTUMING AND ONLY FROM AN ART FORM PERSPECTIVE.  MY EMBROIDERY INTERPRETATIONS ARE BY NO MEANS MEANT TO SUGGEST AN ENDORSEMENT OF THE MANNER IN WHICH MARDI GRAS IS OFTEN CELEBRATED. I SIMPLY APPRECIATE THE VIBRANCE OF SOME OF THE ARTISTRY THAT HAS EVOLVED FROM THE HOLIDAY. I OFFER THESE DESIGNS SIMPLY AS AN ARTISTIC EXPRESSION AND NOTHING MORE.
