This piece began as an experiment and evolved into a multi-part birthday gift. I used colored pencil primarily, and I found that the wood was unbelievably forgiving with a piece of sandpaper in hand. Gradients and gentle hues were accomplished by laying down color and then sanding some of it off, repeat, et cetera. I love how one can see the grain of the wood through parts of the artwork.
The piece is named after a song of the same name by the deceased Japanese artist Hide.
This miniature galaxy was made as a companion piece to “Pink Cloud Assembly”, and it is meant to be hung off to the right of the sky. I have one more companion miniature planned: a black hole with gravitational lensing around it.
