Not Just Hot Air

We've nearly completed opening the 37 paintings in my picture 'Limners' as we come to the end of the Christmas period.
 It is based on an advent calendar with each painting covered by tiny doors.
I was reminded of one of the pictures recently, when I got a card from one of our old neighbours in Great Shelford. He used to make a hot air balloon out of tissue paper every Christmas, to fly on the recreation ground opposite our houses on Boxing Day. We all used to go out to watch, to give us a bit of fresh air.
 My painting for that day is of a failed balloon as often it wouldn't fly, for various reasons. Or it caught alight and went up like a ball of flame.
You can see the painting on my PRINTS FOR SALE page.
