From Sketch to Paint : A Creative Process

I’ve always been fascinated with the process that goes into creating art.

To appreciate an orbit is to be aware of its existence. Although a difficult task this may also be applied to aspects of anthropomorphic life, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Cycles appear prevalent out to the farthest reaches of the universe. The lifespan of a star depends on its size and the amount of matter (star nutrients) provided from the nebula of w
