watercolor for Silver, the universe

My main man (and rep) Matt Silver and his wife Heather are having a baby girl soon.

I wanted to give them something for their baby's room and so I recently spent 40 days and 40 nights concentrating on a pinprick of light on the edge of the Milky Way. Then in one swift motion I summoned all my powers from the far reaching corners of the universe to create this painting for them.

Behold, here follows a photographic account of this historic, galactic event.

* * *

Not all my powers were back yet so I scrapped the above piece after the first wash.

New drawing.

First wash.


Complete, ready for a wall.

And now we are all eagerly awaiting the arrival of little Sharlarla Moon Coke Zero Silver* sometime in September.

*Not her real name.

Cory...I LOVE it. How kind of you to do this. I went into cardiac arrest when I saw the baby's name! I have no doubt it will be interesting.

What a priceless gift that, I'm sure, will be treasured for many years to come!

Thanks for sharing it here!
