hot air balloons

I've recently rekindled my love affair with hot air balloons. I was just three or four years old when I had my first glimpse of them. I had woken early and from my bedroom window I could see huge, colorful balloons sailing across the sky. I remember running outside to admire them with jaw-dropping awe.

I created this print to remind myself of that very morning. It sounds a little corny but it makes me happy every time I see it.


  1. Hot air balloons are so enticing. My husband had made arrangements for us to take a flight in celebration of my finishing grad school, but soon as my final papers were turned in stress was replaced with raging morning sickness! Getting off the couch gave me motion sickness! So, we cancelled. That was 24 yrs ago and we still haven't made a launch.
    Some day...

    1. That is such a sweet story (although I'm sorry to hear that you had such morning sickness!)

      I'm thinking you should make those plans -I can't even begin to imagine the pictures you would take with that amazing eye for beauty you possess!
