Here are my recent paintings. They are less dependent on Hubble or other telescopic images, and more on my play with ideas about "what could be out there"; weather conditions, other planetary bodies and physical realities we may have not yet dreamed of. 

I must admit that the seductive qualities of paint are one of the factors that have encouraged  this magnetic trance-like direction. But then, learning that Jupiter has 67 moons, and that Galileo only saw 4, has helped me along my path as well.
