Art: Summer Kites by Artist Carol Thompson

With steady winds and sunny days, Lincoln City, Oregon, is one of the most popular kite flying places in the Northwest. These particular kites are attached together by a double strand of strong string and can be made to perform aerobatic maneuvers by manipulating the hand held bar to which they are attached.

Artist comment:  My husband and two sons took turns flying a 'rainbow' stack of seven TRLBY kites as I photographed the scene with a future painting in mind.  With oil, I sketched the composition loosely, then proceeded to paint sky and sea and sand, leaving the details white.  I carefully rendered the kites and tails.  Finally I painted the figures on the beach.  I like the way the warm sand compliments the bright kites.
