Dancing With Fate / 2012
Original $1,500 / Acrylic on canvas 16" x 16" / Prints available. Featured on NASA Ames Research Center website / Kepler Mission. Description: I watched the 2012 Venus transit, live, online, streaming from Griffith Observatory. Just the mere fact that I could witness a rare astronomical event live, online (!), made this a particularly interesting transit. To further that exhilaration, as I watched Venus' silhouette glide slowly in front of the sun, it occurred to me that an opportunity to witness an exoplanet transiting its host star would be very similar. And so, I used the Venus transit to transport my imagination beyond our solar system to an unfamiliar star system where a small rocky planet orbiting too close to its host star, ensuring its ultimate fate of annihilation.

Mario, my dear friend,

You're so eloquent in expressing your thoughts. It seems unreal to me that this special part of your considerations are shared with me. Thank you so much for your incredibly kind comments and for spending time looking at my work.

Stunning!

Lucy, a brush in your hands, guided by your skill and imagination, is a brilliant and powerful astronomical instrument. It's no wonder so many people in the scientific community are impressed and inspired by your paintings. Not mere copies of cosmic objects, which although impressive appear flat, your paintings have depth---spatial distribution, and intensity. I can feel the heat!

I love it!
