I really enjoyed painting this piece, hibernating in my studio with snow falling outside. I chose the drawing from a group of sketches I’ve been making from my head while listening to ambient space music. As I was painting it I also listened to an audio book called The Untethered Soul, which paired nicely with the imagery. (A thank you to my sister for that one.)
