"Hot Air Balloons And More" Acrylic Canvas 40" x 48"

A few years back this painting hung in a local art gallery and received quite a few positive reviews.  My vague idea was to paint a very tranquil scene of a few small hot air balloons quietly floating over a pastural green field.  When I got into my "art zone" I let myself go and this painting directed itself to completion. I think that is exactly how one of kind truly creative works happen.  I am happy it happened to me.  I hope others enjoy viewing this painting as much as I enjoyed  painting it.  
Happy Holidays everyone!

  1. Happy Holidays to you too, Michael! Oh, if we could just bottle up that 'zone' to take it out and use it when we need it. I don't always get there, but when I do, it's paradise... love the hot air balloons.. want to take a ride in one some day :) Hugs!

  2. Rose,
    Thank you for your wonderful comments and support!
    I have been on a hot air balloon ride and it was a thrill of a life time. I more than highly recommend this adventure in flying for everyone. I took my hot air balloon trip off the magnificent south coast of Massachusetts. The pilot was able to softly skim the bottom of the basket on a local river and "rest" for a few seconds on the top of very high oak tree. We ended the trip with a very gentle landing on a local field of pumpkins. Nice way to spend an early autumn New England evening. Enjoy!
