Pillow Astronaut

April 26th, 2011

I realized this morning that I didn’t share in my blog that my art was recently featured on one of my favorite blogs: Pillow Astronaut. This fantastic blog is run by Heather Archuletta, she writes about space, science and astronomy and it’s easy to tell she has a passion for all these subjects.

Heather not only posted my art, but also interviewed me for her blog. I loved the quote that she chose as the introduction for that post:

“The sky is the ultimate art gallery just above us.”~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

I now have High Resolution images of my paintings!

January 11th, 2011

Just wanted to share with you that I’ve finished preparing high resolution images of my paintings, all images on the site have now been updated. Click on the thumbnail to see a slideshow comparing details of the new and old images.
A very good friend decided to help me and I was given access to a professional camera for about a week. This allowed me to stitch together about 15 images for each painting, 20 megapixels per shot.

These new images look good on the web but you should really see the quality of the giclee reproductions that I’m now able to offer on the store , they really convey the richness of contrast and details as close to the originals as I’ve seen. The quality of these fine art reproductions is truly phenomenal.

Welcome to The Cosmos Gallery!

December 1st, 2010

I’ve always had a fascination for the universe, and for some reason I managed to postpone the plans I always had about art and the cosmos.
Four years ago, I started an abstract painting about love and the stars, wishing that it would be followed by more astronomy artwork. Instead I ended up with yet another unfinished painting. Then, almost 2 year ago, I decided to retake the project.

I think it was the perfect combination of events: It was 2009, “The International Year of Astronomy”, 400 hundred years since Galileo first used a telescope to study the skies. On a warm night of April, the night of my birthday, I attended my first stargazing party in Dallas. Seeing Saturn’s rings  through a 20 inch telescope, recognizing star clusters and the great nebula in Orion surely renewed the interest I’ve always had for the stars. On that night,  I  promised my self not to abandon my project again.

Earlier that year I had started watching the series “Cosmos” ,by Carl Sagan. I grew up in Peru, the whole series was never transmitted over there, but I did know who Carl was. Amazingly enough, I do remember somehow watching parts of the first episode with my father, when I was a child. I always thought “Cosmos” was only that one single episode. To my surprise, the series had just entered Netflix on January 2009 and there were 13 episodes! By April, I had watched each episode at least a dozen times or more … I do have a history of compulsive behavior. How amazing that almost 30 years after the series, Carl was touching yet another life. He provided the initial inspiration and drive for this project to continue growing and evolving. I wish to contribute my 2 cents to the efforts that so many people continue to dedicate to the popularization of science.

I hope to make this site a place where you can network with other people, discover new sources of learning & creativity, and tickle your interest in the universe around us.
