"Paris Carousel - Blue Manes"

Oil on museum quality, archival ampersand gessobord™ panel - 6” x 8”

This painting is the first in a series of four  6" x 8" paintings gleaned from a carousel in Paris.  The fun twisted chrome poles are a challenge to paint and add a bit of sparkle.  All of the horses in this series have different colored manes and different attitudes, which should be fun to group together as a team.  My daily painting site is embarking on a month long theme - "Tribute to a Beautiful Earth; celebrating and conserving our planet with dailypainters.com" You may have to wait until September to grab the brass ring.

Your versatility in subject matter never ceases to amaze me! You humor never lets me down - a smile, an outright gaffaw, a chuckle... I love visiting your site. What fun to have a grouping of merry-go-round horses, from Paris no less!!! Needless to say, I am one of your many fans... thanks for sharing your great talent.
