Recently, as we spoke on the phone, a non-artist friend asked me where I get my ideas from.

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!
