Red Balloon

This painting is part of a series of three paintings telling the story of a Red Balloon. I wanted to show how a balloon could be of a great importance to some, such as my niece in the picture, and later become a piece of trash on the street to so many others. I believe a child's imagination is one of the most powerful tools to help a child through difficult situations. To us, it may be a simple balloon, but to a child, it may be much more.
