Balloon - IF


This is posted in response to Illustration Friday. This week's prompt is "Balloon". I've always been fascinated by hot air balloons, and have yet to go up in one. Something to look forward to.

We were definitely on the same wave length here. You really captured the sereneness of the flight.

Beautifully done! For someone that hasn't been up an in a hot air balloon, your piece certainly gives the impression that you were inside one at the time.

Aren't hot air balloons just marvelous? Whoever invented it was a crazy visionary. I have yet to go up in one, too, but it's on my list. Your balloons are beautiful!

Kate said...

I always love your soothing palettes. Your work really does have a zen-like quality. This is really beautiful!

Anna Nadler said...

What a peaceful feel this gives! I'd love to go up in one of those things myself!

I could have sworn you'd beat me to the "cow gas" idea :D !

I love the softness of this. Makes me want to be in one of them without a care in the world.

Hey all you bloggers, another uplifting (no pun intended, well sorta) theme. It's been a blast to read all your comments about hot air ballooning. During the summer months I see them in the far distance from my window and so I wanted to capture the serenity of such a scene, and I'm glad it transpired. I think I will have to make a flight next summer. Thanks for stopping by!
