"Skimming the Waters"
w/c on 140 lb Fabriano paper 5/4/11 21" x 29" $1250.00 framed
Skimming the Waters" from the 2009 CS ballon fest, Colorado Springs, Colorado. Some of the balloonists lower their balloons and just skim the waters to give onlookers a treat. Thousands of people have awakened early in the morning, pulled on their warm clothes, grabbed their children and of course their cameras,and a snack and if it is not a windy day, the balloonists are given the okay to rise. With a whoosh of hot air they are up up up and away in their beautiful balloons. It is a "heavenly",sight and a great way to spend a couple of hours for free! Bring your lawn chairs and a friend or two for a spectacular event in the park.
