Carousel I - SOLD

Carousel 1 sold

thank you to Joan for purchasing this little drawing.

Ever since I was a little girl I have been fascinated with carousels or as we call them here in Australia merry go rounds. This would have to be the smallest pastel I have ever drawn measuring 4" x 6" and it was a lot of fun.

Carousel I was the first in a series of carousel creatures and was a lot of fun to draw.  Commissions available. email:  catherin@animalarthouse.com

Thanks for reading my blog.
