Happy leap-day, everybody!
Last night I thought to myself, "you know what your blog needs, Michelle? More ferriswheels."
So I'm going to try to post a ferriswheel picture every friday. Some will be photos I've taken, some others have taken, some of my art, some from other artists. My ferriswheel research is pretty extensive.
I love ferriswheels. I've often been asked what that's all about. The attraction is not all that profound. I have always drawn pointy little wheel-like things, and over the years I have been attentive to objects that resemble the things I draw.
Today's ferriswheel picture was taken long ago, but the date on the image doesn't seem right. It was in the spring of 2000, I think. My best friend took this in Chicago, on Navy Pier. That's me, all blurry in a red hat.
Appropriately enough, I posted three ferriswheel pieces today in my Etsy store. Also a strange and wonderful ol' piece with doorknobs. Check it out!
