Gathering Flight – Hot Air Balloons


Sun rays kiss the last remaining clouds in the sky as these beautiful hot air balloons assents across Bear Valley Springs in Tehachapi, California. Original oil on canvas. Prints are on Fine art paper.



From the Wizard of Oz to the thousands of balloons in Up, balloons are always brimming with adventure! The simplest of flying machines, able to gently lift one off the ground, hot air balloons take my thoughts above this earth. “Gathering Flight” is a call to every nation, kindred, tongue, and people to rise above mere earthly things to a better world to come.

This painting is one in the series Taking Flight, in which I reproduce the most captivating and inspiring scenes from the Bear Valley Springs Hot Air Balloon Festival in Tehachapi, CA.
