About the artwork

Artwork sold in perfect condition

The Mars astronauts should have known better not to go out in just one pressurized rover. But with routine, complacency had set in, and now they were left wondering if the second rover would rescue them in time. We've confirmed many times during our Moon/Mars analog mission studies on the NASA Haughton-Mars Project in the Arctic that going out on traverses in a single pressurized rover would be very risky. If the vehicle became immobilized too far from a cache of supplies, the crew could die. As obvious as it may seem, it's an important lesson future Moon/Mars explorers should heed. Signed by the artist at lower right and on the back. Artist’s label affixed to the back. Framed by the artist in a warm gold wooden frame. Frame is easily removed.

I am a planetary scientist who loves to draw and paint. My artwork is about space and time, and our tiny yet hopeful place in their vastness. I draw and paint about our distant past, events we've survived, our profound cosmic loneliness, and where we might go from here. 

Mars is the challenge of our time. Humans going to Mars will be greatest adventure in space exploration this century. Beyond Mars, we will journey to Saturn's moon, Titan, and one day, to the stars and deep into spacetime.

I have in my garage a primitive spacetime machine in which I can, at considerable risk, visit distant worlds and other epochs. My artwork is the travel log.
