    About this work

    This exuberant painting celebrates kite flying that attends the coming of spring in China. There are typically as many different kinds of kites as there are individuals who fly them which is part of the message of this work. It is created in bright purple, magenta, green and yellow colors that add to the feeling of spring and the festive nature of the scene. The faces shown in the picture are bright and hopeful, irrespective of age.
