[Fast forward to a few weeks ago]
I very much love Impressions de France, the scenic and audibly pleasing movie in EPCOT's France pavilion. My favorite part is when all the balloons are released and fly away into the sky. I drew a whimsical sketch a few weeks ago inspired by that scene and an old Christian Dior perfume ad I was charmed by. I loved the image so much I told my stepdad, who is a very creative welder, that I wanted it made into wall art for my birthday present. I cherish all the things he makes me so I knew that would make it extra special.
He gave it to me today and I LOVE it! I plan on painting the balloons but haven't decided what color yet. I call it "Fly Away Paris". I imagine travel by balloon would be quite lovely.
