Orion: In the Spirit of Gogh was created in commemoration of Nasa’s December 5, 2014 launch of the Orion Spacecraft.
This painting features the Orion constellation belt and its yellow sparrow, Betelgeuse. The Moon is hung far right with an observatory over-looking the night sky at center. A small village, located right bottom, showcases a field of crops and homes. The cypress tree witnesses all.
This painting is a representation of human curiosity taken to the night sky.
Created December 2014 over a period of 5 days. Free-hand, Acrylic on Canvas
