"TRLBY Meets TRLBY" by Carol Thompson

"Welcome to the wonderful world of sport kite flying, where a stack of 'TRLBY Meets TRLBY' at the edge of the sea."

Artist comment:  "My husband, Ed, and I are avid kite flyers and there is no more exciting pasttime than being at the controls of a stack of maneuverable, colorful, and easy to fly vintage TRLBY kites.  Here we practice 'staying out of each other's way'!  Grab two straps and catch the wind!  Back home in my studio I reproduced those moments with pastel on heavy watercolor paper.  Starting with a brief sketch, I painted sky, water, and sand.  Then the kites!  I painted the 'rainbow' stacks from light to dark.  Then came the challenge of the 100 foot tails.  With a steady hand, I articulated each narrow band all in one continuous stroke of pastel pencil. With a thin point I lightly indicated the lines, and it was completed;  a thrilling memory of a day of kite flying at the beach."
