Balloon Leaf

Balloon Leaf


I used to do balloon animals at restaurants during college. I could do a motorcycle in 60 seconds. The problems arose when I had to converse for those 60 seconds with complete strangers. My social anxiety started there. I used to go to the bathroom and have to psych myself up to talk with people and have the hugest smile like I was high.

Here in this painting they are on another planet where a family is being entertained amongst a floating block of cheese and the entertainer produces a balloon leaf while everyone munches on their veggies to make themselves stronger.  They don't notice the poor guy behind them that is in need. In the foreground there are other creatures having a conversation about the purpose of life.
