"Each year at the kite festival you will be treated to the excitement of 'kites and more kites' all week long."
Artist comment: "While joining in the festivities at the latest kite festival at the edge of the ocean, I kept camera and sketch book handy to record anything and everything I could see. There were kites from around the world. On certain days there were categories of sky displays for pleasure and for being judged for awards. On this day the large kites with streamers were being flown. One by one they were launched to flow gracefully on the ocean breeze until they filled the sky. In this diminutive painting, I recorded just a few of the largest of the fabric art. Starting with the sky, I painted the blues, then the sandy beach, finishing the ocean with the hint of rolling breakers. I spattered some dark to suggest rocks and dashed in some lines for grasses."
