Coney Island 3

I often find myself working in sets of threes, and this is no exception. I've created 2 other Coney Island pieces this year, and yet there is still something that pulls me back to the photos I took of the famous Cyclone roller coaster when I was there. I thought I'd finish off the set with one more piece, which will be up at the Land of Odd Gallery's 5" x 7" show this March.

I wanted to incorporate text (as I had with the 2nd piece in the series), and the idea of "Over and Over" came from both the idea of returning to the Cyclone as inspiration for several pieces, as well as the physical act of the roller coaster itself, remaining on the same track and repeating the same course day in and day out.
