Week two. June 2015.

LOOK:

 

QUESTION:
The wheel rotates. The chairs rock. The lights blink on and off.  Can I remember and then paint what is essentially a fleeting glance at a now nonexistent moment in time? 


PAINT:

Eli, 8" x 10", oil on gessoed paper, $250 framed, $225 unframed.

FIELD NOTES:
This particular wheel is nicknamed Eli. In fact most seem to be a version of that name - Big Eli, Lil' Eli. I presume that it's in honor of the Eli Bridge Company, an early maker of portable Ferris wheels.
