• Ready For Boarding

Ready for Boarding is a wall art print done using an abstract watercolor technique of a hot air balloon fully inflated and ready to board. 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. The bold reds, blues, oranges, greens and yellows take center stage. The shapes are soft and whimsical setting the visual for a hot air balloon experience. (Click on the picture for a larger image)

The setting is a group of hot air balloons getting ready for their sunset ascent. The location is in San Diego County near the coast of the Pacific Ocean. San Diego is famous for its sunset rides. As the sun sets over the Pacific Ocean, the onshore flow of winds decrease allowing the balloons to drift inland and descend for a landing before it gets dark. The trip starts close to the coast and takes you inland about 15 miles. The view is incredible as you ascend over Rancho Santa Fe and quietly drift eastward. For those of us that have lived in that area for years, we are use to seeing up to 15 balloons dot the sky just before sunset. 

When considering an art print, the interior design of the room comes into play and the look you are going for with any given print comes into the decision process. This particular style of art print works well with a modern or contemporary interior design. The abstract shapes and bright colors become a simple, but bright focal point for any wall.

I would also like to point out that on the printed version of this art print, "© Kirt Tisdale / TheWallGallery" watermark will not appear. The print is done individually using a giclee technique (Giclee: a technology for fine art or photograph reproduction using a high-quality inkjet printer to make individual copies). The printer is an Epson Stylus wide-format with Epson UltraChrome K3 Ink. This hot air balloon wall art will be printed on Epson Premium Semi-matte Photo Paper. The paper is 10 ml in thickness, with 96% opacity and a 94 ISO brightness rating. The print is then hand cut and depending on size packaged in either a firm oversized mailing envelope or a mailing tube for protection.

If you are ordering the All Occasion Cards, they come in a set of 10 with the art print on the front. The inside is blank for your personalization. They are professionally printed on recycled white matte card stock and are presented as a folded 4" X 5.5" card with a matching envelope.

All orders ship within 5 business days and you will receive an email once the items are shipped. Our quality is guaranteed and if for any reason you are not satisfied or there was damage in shipping, I will replace or refund to your satisfaction. I invite you to share in my love of art and enjoy this print on your own wall gallery!
