"FREED AT LAST"

Just another angle and still exploring the shades of grays and the many moods they represent.   (For more on my black & whites) I must say, deciding on the placement of the balloon took a little time.  I knew I wanted red, but where to place it?  A little to the left a little to the right, higher, lower then finely, the balloon was freed at last. Oil on Birch panel, mounted on a 6x6" varnished wooden box:  (Sold)

Thanks Tracy for stopping to comment. This was a fun painting to do because of those simple shapes.

Really nice composition. That touch of red, perfect.

Thank you Becky,
Working out just where and size of the ballon was a nice challenge but it all worked out in the end..

How interesting! The balloon really adds a certain element of the human to this. Very nice!

Thanks Mary for seeing that, as that was my intent in painting this, I wanted that subtlety to happen.
