Love amusement park rides, especially carousels and giant swings. Think I’m drawn to the artwork on these rides. Love to paint them – like the idea of paintings within a painting. This swing is at a boardwalk pier in Ocean City, New Jersey. Particularly like this swing because it rises and tilts on an angle. Ride has a human quality – can almost imagine the body of the swing as arms reaching down holding onto the riders’ chains. Some of the models in this painting appear multiple times – see if you can spot the duplicates.
