Artist's Description

*A magic day from long ago
Revisits dusty mind
And brings with it the warmest glow
My heart could hope to find

Young cowboy on the carousel
This wrangler on his steed
Imagination was the spell
That filled his every need

The magic of that day lives on
Captured by shutter’s clicks
And even though those days foregone
With me that magic sticks

True magic it must surely be
To turn back hands of time
To live again for all to see
Through image and this rhyme*

This artwork was inspired by my son, D.J., while going through some old photos to get them ready to convert to digital format from film. It was taken on his sixth birthday when I took him to Elitch Gardens amusement park. I had made him a promise that I would take him there once he was tall enough to ride on the ‘big kids’ rides. It was a very magical and memorable day for both of us, and it warms my heart ever time I look at it remembering the wonderful time we had.

I made this digital painting for my son for his birthday, hoping that it will take him back to the joy of that day, just as it does for myself. As we get older, we often forget the carefree and simple joys that we experienced during our youth, and the magical world that surrounds us. I hope that this painting will also invoke those magical and joyous times from your own youth!

The digital painting was created in Photoshop from a scan of the original negative. The original is 4800 × 6600 pixels at 300 pixels per inch. Because the original is so large and difficult to see over the internet, I have included a few of detail cutaways below. The detail cutaways are at 50% of the original size.
