I took some inspirational photos while sailing the air currents in a hot air balloon one early Costa Rican morning. By chance, a couple of pictures could be pieced together for a triptych. As I was graphing out the photo, I realized there was a heart in the landscape that had gone unnoticed. This was just days before Valentine's Day. About two weeks into the painting I realized the heart in the picture was similar to an image on a book at the foot of my bed, “Earth from Above”. Fun! I feel like this is exactly the kind of magic and happy circumstance that goes into nearly all of my paintings.
