Drawing imaginary lines in space to recreate a constellation in the night sky caught my imagination long ago and has led to an entire catalogue of work entitled ART in Space.  To  trace the ancient astronomers lines of the  BIG BEAR or Dipper , LITTLE Bear or Cassiopeia the Queen is to experience the history, the  magic of the night. The results of this mapping are the imaginative shapes and legends of the constellations.

The paintings Big Dipper Little Dipper are each 72″ x 60″ , Mixed media on canvas. They capture a fleeting moment : the moonlight, the wind , cloud formations.http://www.constellation-guide.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/Ursa-Major.jpg
