Shining jewel

3,250.00

“Shining jewel” is a half crescent of our home world set against a curtain of distant stars. Our 4.5 billion year old home is indeed a beautiful planet and serves as a constant inspiration to me as an aerospace / astronomical artist and as a “tenant”.

Everything we know and love inhabits this enticing blue dot in space. My current set of earth paintings was prompted by re-watching the Carl Sagan “ pale blue dot” piece recorded several years before his death in 1996 - http://thepaleblue.org/about/pbd-speech/

Original oil on 4cm box canvas, image size 120cm x 100cm. Signed by the artist.

£3,250.00

Limited edition prints are not yet available for this work. Please contact me for likely print options.
