I’m featuring three art prints this week that present hot air balloons in an aspect we usually don’t see in pictures….the inflation process. I like to work with different perspectives of things that aren’t usually presented and this part of the hot air balloon process isn’t usually captured. I also took it one step further and used a fauvist style of painting to add an additional element to these depictions. The one standard left alone is the colorful aspect hot air balloons typically represent.
I wanted to share a post that moved me even knowing the circumstances behind it. The post is from the blog called “The Picture of Faith” and the blogger I am proud to say is one of my daughters. This particular post speaks a truth in faith not only for this particular situation, but for many others.
Who Are You
You move through each day on auto pilot, because you feel the world and those around you need you to. You’re putting in the time and effort to get through that day, but really what did you do? What did you accomplish? You’re trapped in this vicious cycle of your typical day to day things, but really are you living? You begin questioning what are you doing, who are you, what is your purpose?
