Mardi Gras

mardi gras
 Mixed Media Monday's  theme this week is Mardi Gras.   I've never been to Mardi Gras, but I have been in Brazil during Carnival.  We stayed clear of Rio, but did go to  parades in some other cities.  It was definitely a site to see.  Very outrageous costumes, incredible dancing, and lots of loud music. 
I went with a simple Mardi Gras mask for my piece.  This was a kind of fun challenge because I never would have done a piece like this otherwise.
