Art of the Cosmos in 2020

Right after I got back from my artist residency in Finland I decided to enter some photo and photo encaustic pieces on Call-for-Entry sites with great results. The big news is that I submitted a proposal to make large silk photo banners for a show based on the Hubble Telescope Images. I have been using these for years to blend into my sky and water shots for either a subtle or bold galactic feel. I designed six banners with images of children, (including my grandchildren and shots of Ethiopian children) blended with fantastic Hubble shots.

I took this shot of a Gelada Monkey in Ethiopia pondering the vast valley of the Blue Nile. I then blended the image with a starry scene from the Hubble telescope and then made an encaustic painting.

My proposal was accepted. Right now we are looking at three banners but they may all be accepted later. The show will be in Los Angeles in April, 2020.

This is one of the images I'll be blending with stars for the Art of the Cosmos show. My daughter took this image of my granddaughter on a yellow tube slide.

I am thrilled to have been invited and having a lot of fun developing these images. This show is still in early development but you can read the call for entry at their website.
