Hot Air Balloons, Aspen Trees and a Blue Door

Inspired by the Reno Balloon Races last fall.  I've been going through the photos I took last year for ideas to paint.  My first hot air balloon painting and I really enjoyed it.  Loved seeing them too.   

And aspens are a native tree around here and are really fun to draw and paint the eyes, lines and thin trunks. 

I took a photo of this door in an alleyway while visiting Georgia last year.  I loved the blue door with the awning and yellow stucco style walls.  I changed a few things, embellished a bit here and there to make it how I wanted it.  A cottage style door rather than an industrial door.  Thank you for stopping by!
