Rocket Slide!!

 I LOVE painting these old Rocket Slides - and sliding down them, too!  I remember one from my childhood at the Belton Memorial Park near my grandparent's house in the country.  We used to visit that park from time to time, and later I took my children there to play where I once played.  Now all the equipment has been updated, and the vintage pieces are all gone.  So, it makes me happy to find those same pieces in other historic parks.  This painting is headed to Utah, and the slide is in the Keosauqua, Iowa park by the Manning Hotel - where another Rocket Slide Painting graces the front desk, to later live in the Rocket Room.  Painting number 3822 in 3822 days.
