Waiting to be Known

A companion piece to my previous painting, Reaching Europa (bottom), the focus of this new painting is the spirit of discovery, depicting Saturn, the Cassini space probe, and an allegorical figure of scientific truths yet undiscovered.

"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known."
- Carl Sagan

In less than a week I'll be exhibiting at the incredible show of imaginative realism, IlluXCon, in Allentown, PA (Oct 21-25)! This painting will be there and I would highly recommend checking it out along with all the other amazing work in the show.

  1. Your paintings, right down to brushstrokes, color, observation of cast shadows, and understanding soft and hard forms is downright amazing. I would love it if there were more time-lapse videos of your process and showing how exactly you manipulate paint and time(I was unfortunately only able to find one so far)
