Additional Information

Information on back of painting:

Watercolor by Kay Ornberg, Fargo. Lifelong resident of North Dakota. "Watercolor has been my main media..., and I've been a full time artist since 1983."

"This painting is a part of a series that started with the kaleidoscope tulip paintings. It evolved by replacing the floral element with the figure and fracturing the circle. The layered figure shapes made possible new shapes to emphasize with color while still trying to suggest the initial figures. The nonchalant character of the large figure and the many smaller figures filling the space lead to the idea for the title."
