Twenty-third journey. The accident of the balloon L’Univers.
A. Tissandier, from Histoire de mes ascensions (Story of my balloon ascents), by Gaston Tissandier, Paris, 1880.
“Dear Teresa” A commisioned interpretative portrait for Teresa Herrera. Watercolor + acrylic + colored pencils.
She requested that her portrait be like my “You Are My Tsunami” piece, with the Hokusai painting tattooed on her back and floating fishies. I really loved working with her she’s so kind, funny, and pretty. :)

A pocket of water some 2.6 billion years old — the most ancient pocket of water known by far, older even than the dawn of multicellular life — has now been discovered in a mine 2 miles below the Earth’s surface.
