Callisto was originally thought to be a dead moon. However it is not. There is a totally different frequency and vibration that comes from Callisto than Ceres or Europa. They all have incredibly different personalities.Callisto is more of a dark warrior I would say, often looked over. Not as much attention paid to, but it is a beautiful beacon as well, There is a lot of interesting things going on on Callisto and recently they have confirmed that Callisto is not a dead moon. Callisto is in fact also suspected to be similar to Europa, containing an underground salty sea that is allowing for this moon to be affect by Jupiters powerful magnetic field. And soon with these new advancements in technology we will start to see the perks and the benefits, as we start this wonderful journey actually venturing off into space and learning what is just in our backyard. 

This series, the moons of Jupiter, or Jupiter Queens as I have dubbed them are almost the same as the Galilean moons. These moons came to me in a dream. I was shown them and I was shown to paint the three of them while I was suspended in air, above Jupiter herself. My guides were showing me to paint these three moons in particular and they were shown to me all in the same etherial white iridescent light. I woke up and I had the names on the tip of my tongue, I looked them up and to my surprise they all belonged to Jupiter. Indeed it was meant to be.

I created a new technique and style to be a part of my planets and moons series. I wanted the planets to all have a glossy feel to them as planets do, very much like a marbled surface. And I wanted the moons to be built up and carved out of stone because moons are very craterous and rocky and jagged. Because that is what moons are like, so that is what I have done here. 

These moons are a 3D representation of the way they have been shown to me in the Astral Plane.
