Another quick update

Another set of quick photos. The weather is beautiful today so the light is perfect. Please bear in mind that everything is rigged up with blu tack and gold string but i'm hoping to use invisible wire for the balloons, so it's a bit higgledy looking. Anyway, here it is so far

I liked the wood background of the case but because it had holes in it I decided to cover it over and paint the background in a very dark blue. I am thinking to lower the two side balloons slightly and put one big balloon in the centre dissappearing into the clouds - thoughts anyone?

Other than that I think the background may have some details added, although what i'm not sure what yet :)

I managed to go out for a walk today, it's just beautiful weather here, and bought a marshmallow cake to eat later :)

Just recently found your blog - lovely, lovely work. This piece is stunning! Rather than add a third balloon I'd consider lowering the balloons but asymetrically. Creating a winding path through the piece :)

*LOVE* it. I adore all the details and time you put into these pieces. I agree with artsnark about just lowering one balloon for a little asymmetry to keep the movement in the piece.

Gosh, it just looks fantastic!

Wow, what a lot to catch up on!

I can't tell you how much I love your work. Just too beautiful for words. And this piece is just incredible.

Hey gels, Thank you so much for your lovely comments! I'm enjoying it so much. And, I have indeed made the balloons assymetrical, well sort of, i've done it so they can easily be moved around and lowered or highered! :)

I realised as soon as I read your comments that I have some kind of addiction to symmetry!
