"Flying Crown" by Carol Thompson

"A large colorful 'bol', also known as a 'flying crown', dances from sand to sky on a cool spring day."

Artist comment:  "I have seen quite a few of these types of 'kites' at recent kite festivals.  They are known as bols or crowns.  This one is the largest ever!  Amazingly, it does not take a lot of wind to lift it into the air (although it is meant to roll along the ground).  I did this one with pastel on Canson Mi-Teintes textured paper.  I sketched it;  then beginning with the sky, I painted the background; next the figure;  Saving the colorful kite for last.  I began with the 'inside', then painted the quilt pieces from left to right.  Finally I added the lines that disappear off the right hand side of the painting."
