|State Fair | 24 x 36 | Oil on panel|
I've had the itch lately to try something "different". A couple of autumns ago Karen, my brother Doug and I went to the Georgia State Fair. I felt that the event would provide some interesting photography so I brought along my Fuji. The next day I was going through my photos and came across a half a dozen shots of peoples legs and feet hanging out of the skybucket as the passengers were towed above the fair grounds at dusk. I always liked those images but feared they were just a little too "different" from what I usually paint, and may not be positively received. So I banked those photos for the last couple of years waiting for the right moment. I finally built up the nerve and now that it's done, I have to say I'm pretty happy with it.
