Balloon Ride Over Thailand II

First, I have to say that my heart goes out to all the storm victims in Alabama. There have been so many lives lost and property destroyed. What a tragic night it has been.
This is another painting done from a photo reference by Dewi at WetCanvas, from her balloon ride over Thailand. I had a lot of fun doing this. Click on the photo for a larger look.
It has stopped raining for a couple days, so this afternoon I’m going flying. I’m just going to practice my landings, but I’m really looking forward to it. Tomorrow it will be too windy and then the rain comes back for Saturday and Sunday.
About Stephen Hawking
British scientist Stephen Hawking, best known for his book A Brief History of Time, which did much to popularize physics, is a leading theoretical physicist who used Einstein’s general theory of relativity to prove the big bang theory. He was born in 1942 in Oxford. He was diagnosed with severe amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) at 21 and was not expected to live more than three years. Over time he has become more disabled, but he continues to lecture, speaking through a computer-controlled voice box.
