"Blue Dolphin" by Carol Thompson

"Known as 'sky art', one of many fabric sculptures, this large 'blue dolphin' floats easily on a beach breeze."

Artist comment:  "Held aloft by a large 'pillow' like kite called a parafoil, this wonderful creation delighted adults and children alike at the yearly international kite festival in Long Beach, Washington, recently. I am always delighted to observe new and unique flying objects as I attend kite festivals everywhere. This 'blue dolphin' is one of the latest designs to appear on the coast of the Pacific ocean. The warm colors of the chalk pastel on Canson Mi-Teintes textured tan paper indicate a bright overcast summer day. I sketched the kite, and suggested the horizon line, a few waves, and sandy beah. I chose warm tones for the background to set off the 'blue dolphin'. I began with a blue/purple body with bluish white for the subject. The lines are to indicate the parafoil above to hold up the dolphin."
