"From that distance, my thumb fit over the entire Earth. I realized how insignificant we all are if everything I'd ever known is behind my thumb. When you see Earth from the moon, you realize how fragile it is and just how limited the resources are. We're all astronauts on this spaceship Earth and we have to work and live together.”
- Astronaut Jim Lovell

“The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena... In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand... the only home we've ever known.”
- Carl Sagan, The Pale Blue Dot

Nice. I get the feeling of what I call a wakened dream - when you slip into a dream state before you are asleep - from this.

You did it again, a brillant piece. Love the Sagan quote by the way. Are these paintings a serie of a personal project or all of them are for some work for hire or gig? Just curious about it.

Thank you. The series is a personal project. I sell the original paintings and prints through galleries and on my website.

The colours and brush strokes are gorgeous. What a trippy image
