This is my most recent painting, finished yesterday, for my friend Paola here in Pucon, Chile. She is going to mount it on the ceiling above her bed in her new house up on the base of volcan Villarica. It is approximately 1.5 meters in diameter, acrylic on wood.

Without being aware of it, I painted two "clusters" which remind me of the Magellanic clouds, which are two irregular galaxies visible in the night sky of the southern hemisphere as two fuzzy patches; they are the two closest galaxies to our own, the Milky Way.

A little Earth is floating there, too. That's us, you know.

cheers Jeff
