Big Sky by chinup Big Sky by chinup
Tissue papier mache, spray paint, pencil, and acrylic on wood. 2'x3'

This is my favorite painting to date. It's simple and minimal, and I love its colors.

I like how you left the top part of the balloon out.

Ok the red balloon thing is incredibly cliche, but that doesn't make me like this any less. I think it's the materials you used that make me like this so much. :heart:

So simple. Yet catches your eye.
Reminds me of cartoonist Don Hertzfeldt's short film "Billy's Balloon."
The balloons attack children.

I agree, it's very beautiful. I'm a sucker for simple things. This reminds me of a movie I saw a few times when I was much littler called "The Red Balloon." A boy has a red balloon; it's almost like his friend. He loses it in the end, so it's kind of a sad movie. There is no dialogue. Simple like your painting.

That's exactly the mood I wanted to convey. Pleasant, but sad. :)

Awesome! This is so great, i mean usually when objects break the border like that it is either a> really bad and looks horrible or B> really powerful. Obviously this is B. I like the simplicity and how it is slightly off center. Its as if you were holding the balloon. :D

What a great review. Yes, I initially wanted to have someone holding the balloon at the bottom of the painting, but I realized I just wanted to leave that part open to the interpretation.
