“Riesenrad” 24×30 Mixed Media Drawing

This Ferris wheel stands in the abandoned Spreewald Amusement park in the former East Berlin. The park is fantastically dilapidated and full sized trees now grow through the rides. I visited the park last summer and have been working on a series of paintings based on the rides, the most impressive of which is this Ferris wheel.
