"Sky Dance" by Carol Thompson

"A colorful green-headed octopus 'kite' seems to be doing a 'sky dance' on a morning breeze'"

Artist comment:  "One of the unusual 'octopus' kites that appeared at the latest kite festival in Long Beach, Washington was this sweet little octopus that seemed to be dancing on the breeze. It's large eyes give it an innocent childlike demeanor. I painted it with pastel on Canson Mi-Teintes textured paper. After doing the backgrouond, I went immediately to sketch the kite to fill a diagonal composition. I quickly painted the 'head' with it's limpid eyes. I then painted the tentacles that ended with a rhythmic flow indicative of a swaying dance."
