Balloon Festival Albuquerque, New Mexico
Painting Completed August 25, 2018
Early October, for nine days, over 500 balloons take flight.
This event started in 1972, and draws over 1 million people each year.
Balloons of every color, shape and size cover the ground as heat from flaming torches beg lift – off. Just at the right moment – jump in the basket and take a deep breath. What do the clouds see? You will only know if you venture upward.
