Ballooooooons

I was over at Decor 8 reading Holly's blog and I came across this post and was so inspired to paint again. I haven't painted or drawn in quite awhile....probably ever since I made the UK flag canvas painting for my family room. I love balloons and Holly's post inspired this 8 x 10 painting below. She mentioned that Joy from 'Oh Joy' had blogged about balloons being the next trend....hmmmm I have been seeing balloons in many places, maybe. Anyway, hope you like it.....I may place re-prints in my Etsy shop on Monday, not sure yet. So, what do you think of it ? I know its not what you all are used to seeing from me, but I do have a softer side and I kind of like it! Have a great weekend!

P.S. Now available via my Etsy shop for $9.50 each!

  12. I love the picture too. But I am slightly biased towards balloons anyway, as I am into balloon decorating. If you'd like to create a few fancy balloon decorations yourself, have a look at my free guide: www.balloon-decoration-guide.com.

  15. Hi there Trina,

    I've done canvases before where I painted words...but the words have to mean something to me. As you saw in my post "Glimpse into my Home"... It adds a great touch to any room thats for sure. Thanks about the logo too!

  16. Jennifer this is so wonderful to hear (and see!) and I am excited about your painting because it makes writing so nice when you know at least one person read it and felt motivated to do something so beautiful for themselves. Yay Jennifer to your beautiful painting and spirit!
