Carousel



What goes around, comes around . . . . as they say - and yesterday this old friend did just that!
In around 1992 I painted a number of versions of these galloping horses on a carousel and at the time I revelled in that fairground experience as I applied the paint. Yesterday, I had a call to say this oil on canvas version is available again - well, I just had to see 'carousel' again so I agreed to look after it for a while. Darker than I remember and sporting some quite daring brush work it does have an unusual feel about it.
I think I should find a spot for it in next weeks show - for old times sake.
