Light by Robert Maniscalco
I find this painting particularly amazing as well as scary. The earth, our home, a delicate blue ball, adrift in a universe full of stars, surrounded by, unfortunately, people with bad intentions or selfish needs, who have no idea of its frailty and impermanence. One stupid lighted match, or many, just might end our sojourn here. I don’t feel this fragility all the time, but this painting brings it home, all too seriously. The depiction of the Earth and our galaxy is masterful.
