Painting No. 13: Balloon Ride

I painted this picture from a photo my friend took while she was in Wyoming.  One of the things I worked on in this painting was creating a sense of atmosphere.  I probably still need to lighten...maybe dull?...the mountains more.  I was also drawn to the original photo because the trees were partly in shadow and partly in light.  I really like paintings with that contrast in them.

If you look closely, you might notice a moose in the air!

7x5 oil on gessobord.  Email me at if interested in purchasing.  Thanks!
