The Last of my Kendas

I've finally gotten around to photographing the last of my Kenda  paintings.  It is the smallest of a set of three - all different sizes - depictions of horses on a carousel.  As are most, if not all, of Karl's smaller paintings, it is acrylic on canvas.

It is most definitely one of his earliest efforts.  I have written on the back "1963-4", which must have been told to me by his widow, Ann.  I hadn't even met Karl for another five or six years.

It's obvious to me that he was still working on what I consider to be his later, signature style, during his Cosmic or Psychedelic Period, as I have termed that stage of his development as an artist.
