To create wool painting “Hot Air Balloon Flight Among the Stars”, I was inspired by illustrator Roberto Weigand. I admire his artwork, especially the way he employs starry skies and color in his illustrations. I combined our two different artistic styles and create an imaginative hot air balloon painting for nursery decor.
The resulting picture envisions two people drifting in a hot air balloon through an evening sky, strewn with sparkly stars. My handmade wool artwork is fashioned using a color palette of blue tones. The night-blue sky provides the perfect backdrop to the light-blue hot air balloon in the picture’s center. The strands of wool create texture, and are carefully placed beneath the balloon to form the fluffy white clouds. Various sized stars, composed of metallic-like confetti, are strewn across the sky and sparkle on the dark-blue background.
When you look at this hot air balloon painting you immediately visualize yourself flying onward, and journeying toward new adventures. This kid’s room wall decor will elevate your child’s imagination and let it soar high into the starry night. Before bedtime, your little one will tell you stories about imagined sky-high adventures. After drifting off to sleep, the dream journey will continue until morning, and then more stories will be revealed.
Wool painting “Hot Air Balloon Flight Among the Stars” makes a unique baby shower gift or can be presented as a ‘welcome home’ gift to the parents. In addition, this hot air balloon artwork is the perfect gift for anyone loving fantasy or hot air balloon flight.
This handmade wool painting is fashioned from 100% Merino sheep’s wool. It is nicely framed and covered with a glass to protect its surface and secure the individual wool fibers.
