"Three Octopuses" by Carol Thompson

Three Octopuses

"Rising slowly over the ocean beach, 'three octopuses' dance on the soft summer breeze."

Artist comment:  "Every year at the kite festival in Lincoln City, Oregon, new and innovative kites appear.  These wonderful octopus kites were a fabulous hit!  I photographed them from several vantage points and chose to portray them with oil on canvas from behind, with the ocean as a backdrop.  The composition is a triangle shape, one of my favorites.  With a cool sky and sea, warm sand, and two little boys enjoying the beach, this painting is altogether bright and cheerful."
