Item Description

22" X 28" Watercolor

I was inspired to paint this after visiting this, Carousel in Slater Memorial Park, Pawtucket, Rhode Island.  I hope this makes some little child very happy!

The Looff Carousel was built in 1895 by Charles I. D. Loof.  Originally at Lee Funland in upstate N.Y., is was moved there in 1910.
