"View To A Thrill" by Carol Thompson

"With apologies to James Bond fans, this exciting spiked spinsock invites you to 'a view to a thrill'."

Artist comment:  "When I go to a kite festival, I am always delighted by the size and variety of airborne creations from all around the world.  At the international kite festival held on the beach in Washington State, USA, I watched this beautiful spinsock slowly rotating above an admiring crowd.  Later in my studio, I painted this rendition with pastel on Canson Mi-Teintes textured paper.  I sketched the kite, then filled in the sky.  Next I painted the diamond shaped panels from light to dark, then the tails.  I add the 'spikes' last."
