Last Supper on Mars

These paintings are, like all my work, an inquiry into color. Rendering them, I found myself liberated from the conventions of terrestrial landscape paintings (Mars does not yet have its own Turner, its vainglorious Constable) and free to imagine. What if I brought a softer, more feminine palette to Mars? In "Self Portrait of Mars," I bled a little fuchsia onto the canvas; I integrated gentle yellow, and soft lavender, and a robin's egg blue. 

            And what if my colors were able to take flight--to dance--on the surface of Mars, amid the near absence of gravitational pull? In [the painting you had inside yesterday], I let the edge of the planet blur. I let lines dissipate and dissolve into space.
