Jewelbox Star Cluster

This painting was inspired by photos of the Jewelbox Cluster, NGC 4755, in the constellation Crux, the Southern Cross. I started with the photos, and then let my imagination sort of take over. The foreground landscape, planet, and moon were painted to give a sense of scale and depth. Oil on masonite, and 34″x48″.
