Major Tom and the Outer Space Angler Fish Wrapped Canvas Print


I based this painting on a photo from Discover Magazine, just because I thought it looked interesting. The purple and tan color choices came from the original reference photo. The painting started out as just the angler fish, I hadn't decided yet what the angler would be luring in. When I added in the sea floor, the black water above it reminded me of outer space so the astronaut was a natural addition.  By that point of course the painting needed some stars and a ringed planet. It might be Saturn, but it does't have to be.  I didn't actually think of the astronaut as Major Tom until the painting was done.

Many of my paintings are dark enough that some people find them disturbing.  This painting is a rare example where one of my own paintings actually creeps me out.  Just a little.
