We had fun yesterday. The fireworks were phenomenal. William really enjoyed them as well.
Today’s watercolor experiment:
I tried to extract significant images from my memory of yesterday’s time at the amusement park. I began my painting with a section of a wheel from a wheelchair. We needed one so that Joy could enjoy the park along with the rest of us.
The car race was a lot of fun. The ride was a realization of a full length cartoon of racing cars. It was almost, but not quite as intense as a roller coaster. The terrain was designed to look like a desert, with all kinds of interesting rock formations.
Finally, the best image of all, pictured above, was of William pointing to the spectacular fireworks at the end of the evening.
My study below is a collection of these images.
I don’t claim that this study is a great piece of art, or even a good design. It is more like a sketch pad of ideas that came to my mind when I thought of my experience of yesterday’s outing. One significant outcome of this sketch, however is that the wheelchair wheel in the lower right hand corner of the composition is almost totally obscured. That the wheel, indicating a handicap, was overshadowed by the pointing hand of an amazed toddler was indeed the point of the entire day.
