About Me

Guymon, Oklahoma, United States
I am blessed to live where my grandfather homesteaded, to have three beautiful daughters who are my best friends, to have six delightful grandchildren who live nearby, to be married to my sweetheart of 35 years and to thrill to the special magic of creating my own works of art. I'll never cease to thrill to witnessing new ideas and images come to life from the point of a pencil or splash of a brush. I am blessed.

6" x 9" Mixed Media Drawing on Distressed, Dictionary Page

I'm heading to Albuquerque in a week to participate in the Holiday Rio Grande Art Festival and I figured I'd better include a hot air balloon piece.  Albuquerque (which I have just about learned how to spell and often hear in my head being said by Bugs Bunny) is the home of one of the biggest, hot air balloon festivals in the country.  I have always wanted to attend.  I hope a few hot air balloon fans will attend next weekend's art festival.

My goal for this piece was to create a nostalgic mood with my balloons. I deliberately left out any people in the baskets. I've actually ridden in a tethered balloon a few years ago but I would love to take one of those romantic rides across a beautiful landscape someday.

I love this print. Are you still selling this? If so, am I able to get one in a bigger size, like 11x14 ?
