This is an original painting. The size is 23 cm by 30.5 cm (9 inches by 12 inches). Water color on heavy stock watercolor paper, signed on the back.
The night balloon is for dreams and beautiful voyages. To me this image symbolizes floating, mysticism, travel, solitude, and silence. No machine (liberty from society’s rules). The decoration is typically french that symbolizes a lot for me but here I think its the importance of the artistic lifestyle. The cloud is almost like incense smoke, of which one interpretation is carrying one’s prayers in a heavenly direction. I found online that in dream interpretation, if you dream of a hot air balloon, it means it’s time to overcome your depression.
