Kate C, 2nd grade, Roswell , NM. Kidsplanet dolphin essay competition.
We’ve discussed several times just how difficult it is to get any kind of dolphin painting, sculpture or advertisment to look good. It seems to be impossible. Turf has come through with another good example. Looks like it’s been chasing parked boats.Turf says: Again in Spearwood, on Rockingham Road. Keeping with the ‘Flipper’ theme, here is a horrible painting of a dolphin. Firstly, it is a flying dolphin.Secondly, it has the fin of a shark and the forehead of a whale, but the eye of a human. Thirdly, the tail is all wrong. Fourthly, it sickens me. I do like the weird fish to the left though, perhaps they are trying to make up for their first attempt.
I prefer the dolphin. It does have a certain naive charm not shared by many other attempts. I’m going to give it a generous not worst tag. Thanks again Turf. We still haven’t mined out all Turf’s recent submissions. Best yet to come I think.
