Celestial Lightshow

Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei coined the name "aurora borealis" in 1619 — after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek god of the north wind, Boreas. However, the earliest suspected record of the northern lights is in a 30,000-year-old cave painting in France.
My painting isn’t an attempt to replicate the ancient cave painting. It is an attempt to capture the spectacle, beauty, and unusualness of the phenomenon known as the Aurora Borealis. I hope I’ve been able to do that in some small way.
The Northern Lights, or the Aurora Borealis, are the beautiful dancing waves of light that have captivated people for millennia. Exhibit information for this painting is shown on the HOME page for this posting.
The two paintings shown immediately below are titled “Maryland, America In Miniature” on the left and “Spring Is Coming” on the right. They were part of the “What’s Up? Media 15th exhibit “Into The Garden”. The exhibit ended  August 15, 2022.  Please go to www.whatsupmag.com, or www.acaac.org for an online viewing of the entire exhibit.

Spring Is Coming

The three paintings shown immediately below were recently exhibited in the BWI airport exhibit titled "Winter Memories". Snowy landscapes, steaming hot chocolate, cozy scarves and mittens, children building snowmen… what other images of winter come to your mind?
While it may not be your favorite season, winter brings its own type of magic. This exhibit is about recreating special winter memories and reminding visitors of the beauty of the season.
Although the live exhibit is now closed, you can still see the full exhibit at https://www.acaac.org/bwi-exhibit-32-winter-memories/
