 Finally finished and ready for the varnishing table.
This big guy is 24x24"mixed media (mostly paper) on cradled board. I dreamed up "Runaway Rocker"when a small carnival came to town last year and I saw all the long suffering and roughed up merry go round horses who spend their lives making children smile and laugh and imagined that they in their later years, might dream of open fields and blue skies, free from sticky fingers or kicking heels. I know they're not alive, but who hasn't read "The Velveteen Rabbit" and imagined how a toy feels?
