Painting of the Day: “Solar System”
For your enjoyment, from 2013
“Solar System” · Oil on Canvas · 16×32 inches · 2013
Last week I posted another large marble painting.
In the comments, a viewer said that it reminded them of the solar system. By coincidence, I had done another piece (this one) about the same time, with exactly that title.
They’re not in their natural order, but the relative sizes and colors are at least in the ballpark.
So, from left to right, the marbles represent: Neptune, Earth, Saturn, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Mercury, and Uranus. The lightbulb illuminating the scene is the Sun.
Sadly, Pluto was left out, since apparently it’s no longer part of the club.
