Reaching Europa


Somehow, I forgot to post this painting here when it was completed and when it was accepted to the Oil Painters of America National Juried Exhibition for this year. The exhibition has just ended, but better late than never.

This painting is about our scientific aspirations to explore Jupiter's moon, Europa. As this video from NASA explains, Europa holds intriguing possibilities for finding life beyond Earth.
