Balloon Sketch and Watercolor Painting

I’ll never forget my 5th grade hot air balloon project. Maybe it was the process of using a balloon and gluing tissue paper all around it, letting it dry and then POP! You have a have a tissue paper balloon.  I can still see my balloon hanging from the ceiling.  Okay not exactly but I like to think about it. I can see see the decorated strawberry green basket. Yes that was – AMAZING!  Now I paint them!  I do love this.

Memories like this help you focus on practice and come up with great ideas.



Here’s a recent sketch. Oh MY practice helps so much!


Practice helps you improve your craft.


I’m going to keep working on the painting and the layout.
