Weekly Challenge- "Harlequin"

I chose the theme "Harlequin" because of the variety of interpretations that can be applied to it.  You could go with the traditional "clown-ish" interpretation with painted face, and  playacting....


or maybe a pun on the popular "Harlequin Romance" books......

maybe you feel inspired by the diagonal patterns and bold colors that come to mind when you think of Harlequin.....

you could even go literal and feature a creature with bold patterns....

As always, anything goes- if you can dream it, we will post it!  So, pick a medium, give it your own twist and interpretation and leave a link to your blog where you've posted your own Harlequin inspired art.
Guidelines are in the sidebar if you haven't entered before.
See you back here where all the entries will be revealed next Sunday!

My mind immediately went to my Zentangle efforts - it seemed the perfect way to depict this theme. Here's my harlequin:

Love Harlequins, super cool! I wonder if anyone will interpret it with Great Danes-- mine is of a clown, but with a bonus Dane picture included :-D Thanks, everyone!

When I saw this challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted to make. Not sure it is exactly what I had in mind, but it was a fun piece, anyway. Thanks Stephanie.

After a little research, I found that Canadian publisher Harlequin® publishes many genres in addition to romance. I also found a company called Harlequin Floors that specializes in floors for dance, performing arts, entertainment and display. So my imaginary novel, The Final Rehearsal was born.

Stay inspired!
