Celestials Series X (sf)

Here are my renderings, in miniature, of the Hubbles’ ten best legacy photographs. Even in this small format, their majesty calls out from the cosmos to what is best in our hearts and minds.

Canyon de Chelly Miniatures

We began our tour of Canyon de Chelly in Northeastern Arizona early in the morning accompanied by a Navaho tour guide. The terms of Bureau of Land Management and Office of Indian Affairs treaty with the Dineh peoples, gives them the total control of their continously occupied land within this federally owned National  Park. The ongoing resentment of the Navaho over their subjugation and occupation, still simmers in the hearts of the people. Here is my take of the scenic wonders in which they live.

Celestials Series II

 

This series of 10″ x10″ framed paintings of the Hubbles legacy photographs, which by the way are all in the public domain and belong to all of humanity, came from my first delving into  Nasa’s Hubble Galleries. So many spectacular views of the cosmos, I hardly knew where to start.

Caribbean Waters Series II

Some people take cruises to play, eat and gamble. I cruise to gaze at the sea. Ocean waters like the sky display the immensity of creation and fill me with awe while my concerns become insignificant. This series of paintings are renditions of just one bow wave among the uncountable number that passed before my eyes.
