My Very First Oil Painting
I think my inspiration came from a photograph in one of my textbooks. I was insanely proud of this painting. I kept bragging to my parents how well I executed the shadowing on the hot air balloon. They seemed or at least pretended to be impressed. I was therefore encouraged to continue painting as a hobby. I listened to audio books such as Life of Pi, Memoirs of a Geisha, and The Great Gatsby as I sat in the corner painting pictures of tigers, snow covered mountains, and the Statue of Liberty.
To this day I love to paint. It's fun to be able to trace it all back to this simple hot air balloon painting. Can you remember the first thing you ever painted?
