This painting depicts a visiting carnival and another moment in time in Bob Olszewski's life.  Set up in a field outside town, carnivals like these were common throughout the United States.  Bob's brother, Ray, is one of the teenagers pictured in the lower left of the painting.

Saxonburg Carnival represents a darker, more introspective style of painting.  Bob explained to me how light in a painting affects and reflects the mood of the painter.  The placement of light is also very useful to emphasize areas of the painting or to draw the eye to points of interest.
