Water Balloons

This is my entry to the Daily Paintworks challenge, to paint a water balloon. I did not purchase the balloons marked water balloons. When I opened the package I found out the mouth did not fit over the faucett. I had to fit them over a funnel and push the funnel under the faucett. It work good enough. I remember when all balloons worked as water balloons, a balloon is a balloon. These new balloons are made so cheap.

  1. Carlene this painting is frickin' fantastic!! Just awesome. Love the brushstrokes.
    Happy Painting.

  2. What fun!!! Lovely colors. Not sure how you accomplished it but they really look like they are full of water and could pop at any moment! I didn't know there were special balloons to be used as water balloons... sigh... yes, so many things are made cheap nowadays.

  3. Special balloons?
    Who knew?
    They look great, bravo!
