  1. I was surprised to find out that this painting is in Houston’s Museum of Fine Arts, which is less than a three-hour drive from our home in Austin. Now that we’ve gotten vaccinated and the pandemic is easing up, it may soon be time for a return visit to that museum.

  2. Stunning. I used to love to look at the galaxy with the naked eye. Not sure it’s visible in the light-polluted ‘sin bin’ called Toronto. I’m lucky to see a handful of stars at night when I take out the trash! Really have to stretch the imagination to get that nature feeling… but it’s not impossible. 🙂
