Hot Air Ballooning Very colorful graphic painting of a hot air balloonist floating in the sky. Painted in acylic on cold press illustration board. Size is 39.5" x 25" with 1/4" border. Created in 1985. I love the simplicity and color in this painting. Inspiration for this style of painting was travel posters that were popular in the early 1900's and art nouveau, but not as complicated.
