My new art piece is 23 inches round with thousands of glass seed beads, broken glass, tiny pebbles and rhinestones on a wood panel. The art was inspired by a photo from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter in December 2015, traveling 80 miles above the far side of the Moon. The original photo was digitally combined to refine the image. I started this art work prior to the launch of the Artemis 1 Orion spacecraft, and hope to see a similar image from its incredible journey until splashdown today, December 11, 2022.
Born in 1944 in Washington, D.C., I have painted and sculpted most of my life. At 74 years of age, I feel I am at my most creative time of life. I started painting a series of "Nebula Art" in 2015 after seeing the Hubble Space Telescope images. I find so much joy in attempting to capture these beautiful photographs. I live now in Naples, Florida, and have 18 completed paintings so far and will continue to paint as long as I am able. I studied art and sculpture at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C.; painting and sculpture at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, Va. I have taken art classes in my community of Pelican Bay. Exhibition include Swiss Embassy, Torpedo Factory, Pelican Bay Community Center, Naples Art Association and Rookery Bay Go to the artist's portfolio
