Dandelions and Balloons Canvases

It really wasn’t my plan to do two painting tonight. I just planned on finishing the green one I started last night. The balloons painting just kinda happened. 

Ok so what really happened was this. I was looking at the background I started yesterday, and it was very green and brown because I’d planned on doing another landscape/field painting with it. I was looking at and I thought, gee, it’s too bad it’s green not blue, I can’t do balloons now

I have no idea where the balloons came from. They just popped into my head.  My theory is they probably popped up because I was thinking of doing dandelions in the green field painting and dandelions remind me of summer days as a kid and being a kid reminds me of balloons flying off into the sky. That might be what happened subconsciously but I’m not really sure. All I know is suddenly I’m doing two paintings tonight, dandelions and ballloons. 

Not that I mind though. It just surprised me. Art happens when it needs to happen I guess, and both the dandelions and balloons needed to be painted tonight.
