The Journey: Red Balloon by SethFitts The Journey: Red Balloon by SethFitts
This one has been in the studio for awhile waiting for me to figure out how finish it. I am still unsure if I like the lower portion of the piece.
Acrylics and pastel on wood.

S. Fitts, 2010

You usually ground your images in some way, maybe this is why you're uncertian about it. I think the ambuguity of such a majority of the picture's surface makes it seem a little off. :/ In other pieces, I've seen you use clouds, shadows, other picture elements such as keys and/or circles, or simply placing the main object in a symetrically or asymetrically balanced way, and somehow the picture is complete.
Yes, waiting could bring the answer. Sometimes the simplest thing can tie it together. :)

Yes the grounding gives a sense of depth and place. Thank you much for your thoughts on this. :D

It seems to be an allegory of the journey of the mind, the flux of imagination that has the power to fly and go beyond reality. In its simplicity is really an impressive work...I'm so in love with it.
