Ship of Moons
This surreal landscape came to be because I saw a ship transporting spherical gas tanks. For me, those tanks became moons that the ship, which in my world is named the Luna, brings to places where the "rim of crust" of the old moon has crumbled away and so requires a fresh Moon. At first I thought I should make the moons very detailed, but I reminded myself that when we look at the moon, we don't see all the craters and "seas" of nice crisp NASA photos but instead mostly the moon's glow. So these moons glow, so much so that the sailors have to wear moonglasses. I had a great time painting this one.
The giclee prints are on 100% cotton archival fine art paper, colors are matched to the original by the artist, and they are signed on the back. The original acrylic painting is 12 x 24"/30 x 61cm on a cradled wood panel with a traditional .75"/2cm profile. It should be framed to protect the corners from bumping.
