oil on canvas, 2013, 30"w x 24"h
This portrait of my friend and colleague was inspired by the coincidence of two astronomical phenomena that occurred on February 15, 2013. On this day the Chelyabinsk meteor unexpectedly struck the Earth, in Russia, while scientific eyes were focused on the predicted approach of the Duende asteroid. The crosshair in the painting points to Duende, the lesser-known asteroid of the day. The star-sky image was a great challenge to paint, and the painting as a whole reflects my interest in doubling images and experimenting with color and technique.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in 2020 in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.
Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so for another year, through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
