I painted Neowise Descending during lockdown of 2020 when images came flooding in of the comet Neowise. It’s presence that year felt like a poignant symbol of our place in the universe and it served as a reminder to me not to get caught up in delusional thought processes. The night sky holds a power to act as a mind cleanser, rooting me to reality and keeping my mind expansive and open. This in turn helps me with creativity.
Painted in four colours, I thickly applied paint give texture to the landscape in the foreground while the comet is painted using a soft brush of light onto the surface of the sky. The majority of stars are painted individually, some are pale yellow, some are pale pink.
Unframed but with neatly painted edges, strung and ready to hang. If you’d prefer it framed in a black floater frame for £50 please contact me.
