"Enjoying Kites" by Carol Thompson

"Kite festival goers have set up their mini shelters and are 'enjoying kites' that fill the sky."

Artist comment:  "On a warm August day, with a bright overcast sky, I set up my portable art studio and proceeded to record the impressions I saw and felt at the yearly kite festival. As I watched, people erected their shelters and launched various streamers of miniature kites into the summer breeze. I was particularly impressed with the red-white-and-blue trains that dominated my field of vision. So, en plein air, with a quick sketch and a few slashes of color, in a few minutes I had a record of the moment. I finished the painting later in my studio."
