"The Carousel"

5"x 7"
acrylic on hardboard

I have always enjoyed photographing carousels ever since I was in collage and photographed the carousel in Central Park. I never knew exactly where the carousel was in the park, so we usually just walked until we’d happen upon it, which always happened at the end of the day. All of my images were rushed and I’d never manage to capture anything extraordinary with my camera. I guess my obsession continues because I’ve never seen a carousel that I did'nt photograph. Through out these years I have noticed that there are only a few models of carousels. After seeing them over and over again, you can image how excited I was when I stumbled across the carousel at our local zoo that was…unique. The carousel is filled with zoo animals, I loved it. Painting the zebra was a joy and refreshing.
