Boy with the balloons

Standard
Boy with the balloons small

Acrylic paint on acrylic paper painting representing a boy standing on a rock in a meadow holding a bunch of balloons as other balloons float overhead amongst passing birds to greet him on his birthday. I painted this on my birthday a few days ago and I was thinking of my friends from near and far who sent me birthdays greetings. My idea was that I said I’d be in a certain location and they would send balloons in place of themselves. The balloons were intelligent enough to travel by themselves to arrive at the specified time and location.
