A kite-inspired watercolor by Australian artist Stanley Wong Hoo Foon, made for an exhibit of miniature artworks held in conjunction with the Wolrd Cup of Sport Kiting, in Lakes Entrance, Australia, 1995. My remembrance from the time is that Hoo Foon was a friend of noted kite maker and designer, Peter Traverse, whose kite appears in this watercolor.
