The Almost Perfect Day
About this artwork
Out for an exhilarating ride on his best buddy, Barney, Leopold looses his grip on his shiny, red balloon. He is plagued by the confluence of heart-bursting joviality, and an instant of despair, so characteristic of the human condition. It is an ironic fate for a non-human. The work is done mostly in watercolor with brown and black ink detailing on the figures.
