Yes shadow puppets

can be scary. Very scary to be exact...and beautiful and creepy and funny.

Our friends the Bishop's invited us to come see a "puppet show" with them last night. They sent us a link, and I was immediately intrigued! They are called NightShade. Here is a small sample, these images are nothing short of remarkable.

I was very excited to go, but I have to say that the actual performance was.....amazing. I was literally awestruck when it was done Check out their blog for some more incredible pictures.

It has been a long time since I saw something so inspiring , I wish I had my sketch book so I could grab all the ideas out of my head before I lost them! So as you have guessed, I got a few ideas for props for the yard. :) The angel in the graveyard is now my new mission.

Do yourself a favor, if these very, very talented kids EVER perform in your area. Go see them, don't think twice about it - buy the tickets - you can thank me later :) They sold out all their shows here in Portland in just a few days.
