Gracie graces window of opera house

Gracie Allen, created by fiber artist Karen Loprete
I was outside the Sterling Opera House in Derby, Ct. yesterday and was able to get a close-up of the window featuring Gracie Allen, the "better half" of the popular Burns and Allen comedy team of yesteryear.
The couple appeared at the Sterling Opera House back in the vaudeville days.

It's the only one of the 12 incredible portraits recently installed in the windows of the historic building that was created out of material instead of paint.

Kudos to fiber artist Karen Loprete of Shelton on this amazing piece of art work.
