Balloons on Steroids


"Balloons on Steroids" is painted on an 8x10" Canvas with Acrylic paint, in Landscape orientation.

This work is available as a Silk Scarf and as Fine Art Giclee Reproductions on Paper or Canvas. 

This work began by being a study in tubes of paint, a paint palette if you will. I was painting circles of each of the colors in my collection that I paint with most often, just to see what all I had.

Soon I noticed the resemblance to a huge bunch of balloons being swept off by a great gust of wind. I could even imagine the strings where they were attached.

A great surge of whimsical movement and joy, "Balloons on Steroids"  invites the viewer to participate with a myriad of feelings.

This little picture packs a lot into a minimal space.
