Finish, Hot Air Balloons, Pastel Painting

This is the finish of the hot air balloons. This is a snapshot. I will take a good photo with the tripod, etc., before framing. If you want to buy now before framing, the price is $230.00 with free shipping. The photos do not do justice to real paintings, so satisfaction guaranteed. :)

This detail shows the people in the baskets. The photo doesn' show the pastel strokes very well, either.

It was a pleasure doing this painting. The balloon fiesta is such a fun time. Many pleasant memories. The square format is very interesting, I will have to try it again. It does require that I order a frame. This is not a standard size, 12 x 12 inches. It is on pastelbord so does not require a mat. It can be framed with spacers or touching the glass.

Here it is with a couple of framing ideas...

Nice change of pace! I like it. Of course, I've always been partial to the ABQ balloons.
