I painted this because I wanted to show you what it is like standing on the side of the street, watching the parade pass by. The compelling images and sensations of one spirited, light-hearted festival float give the impression of umbrellas, twirling as if on drop spindles. Umbrellas usually shelter us from the world of nature and also stop us from seeing each other or where we are going. But here, the individual parts, altered and arranged, interact to make an unabashedly happy whole image, one that invites us in to participate. A painting needs a structure to hang all the details and pattern on just as a fantasy float needs a structure. A structure allows us to see the whole float while playing among the individual umbrellas.
