Cassini by robrey Cassini by robrey
Oil, 18 x 24 inches

In our pursuit to understand the solar system we find ourselves in, we sent an explorer to the Saturnian system. The Cassini Spacecraft sent back amazing new data and images of Saturn and it's 62 known moons, 46 of which were unknown when it left. We learned that the moon, Enceladus, may have everything it needs to support life deep in it's global ocean, Titan has a liquid methane sea, and so much more.

Last year, low on fuel after twenty years in space and so much information gained, Cassini took several dives between Saturn and it's rings to learn a little more before it's mission came to an end. To avoid possible microbial contamination of any of Saturn's moons, Cassini dove and burned up in Saturn's atmosphere, while sending back it's final data.

Start working at home with Google! Itís by-far the best job Iíve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $177 per hour. I work through this link, SalaryHd.com

So the whole "Dear Moon" mission the Japanese Billionaire is doing and is taking artists to the moon (supposedly). Instantly thought of your art, thinking what you'd make if you were to go by chance, lol. Your art is extraordinary.

This reminds me of one of those old Space Age posters from the 60's and 70's. Also those old 1800's paintings of Columbia and Manifest Destiny. It's beautiful.

I LOVE IT!  I still ask myself how this picture was made *speachless* It isn't often that I see a picture that beautifulness. The difficultest parts for me are the hands and faces, but in your picture it is on the highest levelLa la la la

Excellent luminosity on the neck there.  You have really good control of values.  I can't really do oil painting well because all my values end up looking muddy. My whites always seem to get contaminated.  I'm not sure how you do it.
