Why we love this product

Up, up and away...

This uplifting painting brings joy and light to any room. These gorgeous bunch of balloons remind us of hard boiled liquorice sweets imposed onto the beautiful blue sky; David always has a wonderful eye for composition. The contrast of bright, eye-catching blue and the monochrome balloons is very complimentary and adds a pop of colour to any sitting room or study. David's attention to detail is something we love about his work. On close inspection, you can see the stitch marks that hold the balloons together.

Framed in a simple black frame to highlight the black in the balloons. This painting is versatile and would also suit a child's bedroom or playroom, inspiring them to make up stories or to even try and copy drawing the lovely balloons.
