“Menagerie Carousel”

This piece took me over five years to complete. My Aunt Joann (my Mother’s older sister born in Aalen, Germany) loved carousels and we visited a museum in Sandusky, Ohio where many of the pictures were taken as my inspiration. Her passing put the project aside for many years.  The Mystic competition finally motivated me to take out and finish this unique piece. It won the “Best of Open Category” and “Best of Show” at the competition in 2008. Later, when I told my Mom that I thought I had it sold she said, “Well, that should stay in the family!” Needless to say it lives with Mom now. I was glad for the challenge and happy to see it completed. Life is a circle, go for the ring!
