Very early, when I started painting, I did a series of three paintings, based on the Balloon Festival. Bristol is famous for these balloons and they come in all shapes and sizes. Not only in ordinary balloon shapes but also in many imaginative designs as well. My favourite is Rupert Bear. The balloons themselves are marvellous bright colours and to see them fly over the Suspension Bridge is a sight that attracts many hundreds of people.
