Earlier this summer I passed one of these nomadic carnivals setting up in the parking lot of a local shopping center. This traveling amusement park struck me as a great subject for some paintings. I quickly drove home, got my camera and returned to get as many shots as I could before the gates opened for business. The cumulus were building up in the sunny humid skys, providing a wonderful backdrop to the well worn amusements in various stages of assembly. This piece depicts a small portion of a single leg of the spider.
