"Centipede" by Carol Thompson

"A colorful 'Centipede' fills the sky with color and motion. It dances on the wind, causing its translucent colors to change as the sun's rays penetrate multiple layers of bright fabric. Made by Peter Lynn of New Zealand, it is a delight to children of all ages."

Artist comment:  "Against a cool blue sky, an innovative 'kite' design sways in the summer breeze.  I am always amazed by the creativity of kite makers from around the world.  This one was particularly fun to paint.  With oil on canvas, I began with a simple sketch.  I painted the background first, leaving the subject white.  When that dried to the touch, I began the subject with the lightest colors first - drying between colors.  The final darks were meticulously painted, then the small accent 'bird' kite."
