Artist Comments: I love great sci-fi movies like Star Trek, Star Gate, and Star Wars; just about any story where space travel is involved. In fact, I think I should have grown up to be an astronaut instead of an artist…. well maybe. The bottom line is, I absolutely love adventure and to me traveling through the far reaches of outer space would be the ultimate in adventure. It was only natural that I create a painting with the subject of space travel.
In addition to loving the idea of space travel, I am very interested in our national space program. I’m amazed at the many modern inventions we take for granted that has been made possible because of space technology. Inventions like long-distance telecommunications, water filters, invisible braces, scratch-resistant lenses used in our eyeglasses, and even memory foam used to make our mattresses. Also solar energy and the insulation used in our attics and walls, as well as, portable cordless vacuums, workout equipment, and CatScans. Even smoke detectors, cordless tools, and artificial limbs, to name just a few. Indeed space exploration has created new markets and new technologies that have spurred economic growth and enriched our lives in many ways.
