acrylic on canvas
Did you ever notice how creepy some of the characters on kiddie rides at fairs and older amusement parks can be? Since I've started noticing, I've become fascinated by them!
This painting is for an upcoming spring show. The theme is "Parks & Recreation". One of my families favorite forms of summer recreation is to go to some of the local old amusement parks and to the old-fashioned traveling fairs and carnivals. I hope eventually to do an entire series of little scenes, little glimpses, of all the colors and sounds and the feel of these places. Right now I am working on three pieces for the exhibition to be finished by the end of this month.
