Inner Rounding Boards

The following inner rounding board paintings of endangered species animals were painted during the 1990s for a San Antonio, Texas based new carousel. However the organizers of that carousel decided against using them in favor of paintings with a locally based theme. Marianne Stevens, now deceased, had put the deal together and so donated the 16 paintings to the Carousel of Happiness.
