I've been involved in another project lately,
so haven't taken as many pictures as I would like.
I did take the time Saturday to participate
in the Indiana State Fair's Plein Air Day.
Not that I'm a "plein air" kind of person --
my temperment isn't suited to that sort of work.
I ended up with a brightly colored depiction of
a carousel, another version of "horses at work."
The gaily painted steeds on the merry-go-round carry
children of all ages in never-ending circles with
flashing lights and pulsating music from
an electronic calliope.
I bet that would make even the most
jaded pony turn into a fiberglass hors d'oevre
with a giant gold toothpick stuck
between its withers.
You rock it, carousel cayuse!
