I hit a monumental birth year a while ago and to celebrate the occasion, my daughter and I took flight in a hot air balloon! It was an incredible experience. We rose before the sun that morning and met our group in a lot, where we helped to fill the balloons with hot air. After climbing into the basket with our captain and a few other folks, we ascended. I loved the slow rise above the mountains of Park City, Utah, drifting along with the wind. I find the view from above to be so calming and peaceful, inspiring me to paint from that perspective.
