I started feeling well enough and back to my old self enough again to dive back into creating balloon art.
There is a lady we go to to help us with our tax prep and we just really like her. She actually makes the daunting task fun and enjoyable because you get to see her and she will make you laugh and feel so at ease.
I surprised her with my original Dalmation bouquet last year and she was so appreciative, she had tears in her eyes and hugged me probably 50 times.
I made another original bouquet, this is a Patricia Balloona original design of a girl reading a book while taking shelter among the flowers and in nature. It is reflective of what I have been doing as of late.
I am reading 4 different books at once currently, lol. I have also been getting outside more and have been soaking up nature.
I remembered the colors the lady wore when we got our taxes done and used them in the bouquet.
I really love how I made the book and glasses and I like how I have her looking regal and like the bouquet is like a throne. I love how the leaves almost look like wings behind her. I also really like how I have done the chest area. It is something I have done before with a fairy bouquet but I got the proportions better and have it much cleaner. I also like how her skirt is done and how it is sitting. Her feet are tucked inside the grass as it were. I am really proud and pleased with this piece. 🙂
I love how everything came together and I was able to manifest what was in my head, which is one of the most gratifying feelings, when you can imagine something and make it come alive.
She just loved it and again hugged me 50 times and is so beautifully appreciative. I wanted to bring it to her on a Monday as that way she could enjoy it where she works all week and Mondays suck man so hopefully this would help her week get off to a nice start.
I really love surprising people with bouquets. I like that they are not expecting it. That makes it really fun for me. It feels good. People who are lovely need to know that that loveliness matters. She brightens other people’s day and that means something and is recognized and is meaningful.
