So I was all, “Hmmm maybe I will make this a painting” & since I had caught a cold earlier which left me unable to fabric shop, I found myself unable to further sew, but definitely able to paint. Or draw again. But bigger! I intentionally made the hand quite larger than the balloons because I wanted to imaginary see this through to how I would hang it if I were to ever do so (which 99% most likely, I won’t). I decided I would like them to be far away from one another. Of course the hand would be what you see up close since balloons are much lighter, not attached to a body, and will place great distance between themselves & the ground pretty quickly.
But I guess I feel more free seeing an open hand than to see balloons making an escape. Balloons are just doing what they do because of physics & nature. The person behind the hand made a decision to release and to let go.

So I am still working on that dress but I can never resist starting another project before actually finishing one. Not too long ago, I made this painting. It basically is along the same theme as that ceramics piece I posted the other day, just in a different medium. I suppose those kinds of ideas have just been bouncing around in my head lately.
& I just really like this picture. I was taking a snapshot of the painting, but this little puppy was like, “oh wait, is something getting more attention than I am? That can’t be right, let me just stick my head in here.”
