Hot Air Balloons

I had a great time with this painting. 16 x 20 canvas.  LOVE hot air ballons and painting them is one of my favorite! There was a time when I never missed the annual balloon races in Reno, Nevada. Spectacular. In keeping with my mantra this summer, I'm using as much color as I can, as undiluted as possible.  Trying to not overwork paintings...just lay down the color and capture the feeling as quickly as I can. This flys in the face of everything I normally do and I'm enjoying the feeling of careless abandon with my paint brush.
