The Slide

The Slide comes from a childhood memory from a time when my mother worked for a private school and I attended preschool there. I was waiting for her out by myself in the playground, and climbed to the top of the big kids slide – and then was afraid to go down! Mom found me sitting up at the top, higher than she could reach, and had to get help to coax me down. So I drew the slide with exaggerated perspective, to indicate how big it seemed at the time.

The material for the slide is a linen with gold threads woven in, which gives it a nice sheen. I find I remember nothing else about that playground, but there are always weeds that grow close around the edges of things, so I added a bit of greenery to put more color in the piece.
