Pastel in Progress a la Regina

I still don't really have time to post. I suggest you take a look at Regina's pastel sky painting in progress. Amazing to see the painting grow to a finish.

Here is the POW/MIA balloon lit up in the Moon Glow/Twinkle on Saturday night.

The balloons are so beautiful to see. I will work on getting some more photos posted before we leave Albuquerque.

Jo: I thought that was a painting with all the neat lighted ballons. What's with the coats down South?

Jo Castillo said...

fishing guy, the balloons are great for painting subjects for sure. I wonder how many millions of photos are taken. The three of us did over 600 a session!

And, yes, jackets required! The morning balloons go up at daylight and just before so it was around 50F degrees. The evening was wet and not much warmer. They do have grass on the fields now, so not a mud hole as in the past.

We lucked out and saw the balloons three times that weekend. There were cancellations after that.
