Description This piece was from a photograph taken during preparation for a 'Sunset Hot Air Balloon Ride' in San Diego. We met the pilot with the other riders in a parking lot of a local business. We were then taken to an open field where our balloon was being inflated for the ride. The ride was spectacular and the scenery beautiful. What I like about this piece is the way it captures a mood from that moment. Using a gothic oil technique gives the piece that old world warmth which is exactly what I was looking for. The sister pieces in this gallery are all from the same excursion. Please take the time to review both in this series and a variety of other prints posted here in my gallery on Imagekind. For additional prints, please visit my website at TheWallGallery.com.
Kirt Tisdale, Everett, Washington Member Since February 2013 Artist Statement I have been creating art since I can remember. I have been blessed with having my work featured in various venues. What drives me is the beauty in the world with which we live. I remember as a kid looking up at the clouds and watching them change shape...if they could only stay in one shape long enough for me to enjoy and appreciate them....but that's not how it works. What I can do though is take a moment and freeze it. The beauty around us needs to be savored, contemplated and appreciated. Good art invokes an emotional response either through the scene depicted or the colors used. I hope my work invokes the same in you.
