Artist's Description

"First Up" is a wall art print done using an abstract watercolor technique of a hot air balloon starting its ascent ahead of another one. The technique focuses on the bright colors of the hot air balloons and less on the details of the subject. The balloons stand out prominent with their striped colors.

About Kirt Tisdale

Kirt Tisdale

I have been creating art since I can remember. I have been blessed with having my work featured in various venues. What drives me is the beauty in the world with which we live. I remember as a kid looking up at the clouds and watching them change shape...if they could only stay in one shape long enough for me to enjoy and appreciate them....but that's not how it works. What I can do though is take a moment and freeze it. The beauty around us needs to be savored, contemplated and appreciated. Good art invokes an emotional response either through the scene depicted or the colors used. I hope my work invokes the same in you. For additional prints, please visit my main gallery:
