"Flying Lighthouse" by Carol Thompson

"Dancing on the ocean breeze, this 'stylized' lighthouse kite is a fanciful sight".

Artist comment:  "Going to the Washington State International Kite Festival every year is to observe unique and beautiful fling objects. The participants truly come from all around the world. One honored guest is Loik Lamalle from France who created this amazing flying 'lighthouse' with his 'signature long striped tails'. I was intrigued by the unusual shape and awed by the vivid colors against the grey-blue sky. I painted it using soft pastel. After my initial sketch, I quickly blocked in the background. I then painted the kites from light to dark putting the blacks in last. After painting the 'signature long striped tails' I 'hooked' a line to it and signed the piece."
