  The painting to the left provided the inspiration for this 9' by 6' balloon art graphic. The painting was one of those selected by Rocky Toomey to decorate the Final Night Gala at the 2002 International Balloon Arts Convention (IBAC) in Chicago, IL, USA. The event setting was an art gallery complete with eight large balloon "paintings" and a variety of magnificent balloon sculptures as well.

The painting was translated into a balloon design by Graham & Mary Queen Rouse of Rouse International in Columbia SC, USA. The design was assembled and installed by IBAC staff and volunteeers attending the balloon convention with Qualatex balloons and an expandable Rouse Matrix Systems framework.
