18x24 gallery wrapped canvas
Painted with acrylics - the balloon and flamingo basket were attached separately made of heavy cardboard and string, beaded trim and ribbon trim....it is raised to create a floating affect (see shadow on the canvas). The names on the map were all hand lettered.
The balloon floats over a magical map-world filled with places named but not fully discovered......Bellnia, Mermaidian Sea, Lynaloc, Hydrangean Ocean, Starroz Islands, Oria, Nalkanea and Sandrant....all waiting to be explored. Where would you like to land? The compass helps guide the direction.
