I told him, from photos I’ve taken, from nature, from words I hear that give me a feeling and an image, from memories, from dreams –
Then he asked, what would you see, first thing, if you opened your space ship door on a new planet?
So this is what I ‘saw’ –
Painting it was such a challenge, because I have no idea if those are buildings, or people, or plants, or – who knows what?
So I just guessed color and placement and energy and sun and contrast – and I like it!
