"Squid" by Carol Thompson

"Hovering ominously over the people at a kite festival, this kite is simply a 'squid'."

Artist comment:  "It seems each year the creations that appear at the kite festival in Long Beach, Washington are bigger, grander and more wonderous than ever! I feel fortunate to live here at the beach. I can attend the festivities and I get to interview the kite makers and flyers, and I get to recreate with pastel on Canson Mi-Teintes paper, the color and emotion I had experienced. Here I emphasized the top of the 'kite', then down to the bulging 'eyes' and finally the tentacles waving in the breeze. Finally the lines attached around the crown (if you look closely, you will see the two lines attaching it to a parafoil which actually holds it up)."
