Landscape of Auvergne, in the very heart of France.
A few times a year, in the morning, I am surprised to discover balloons outside my windows. Le Puy-en-Velay, a town near where I live, is an international gathering place for hot air balloons. It is every time a wonder to behold them in the morning light through the mists.
This painting is painted with professional grade oil colors on a primed canvas. I prepare myself my canvases to create a texture specific to my painting needs and to insure them maximum longevity.
