Something about it has almost a hypnotic effect on my soul as I was painting it. I love everything about it the shape, the size, the colours, the texture. The feel of it, the energy coming off of it. While it is not the biggest or the smallest moon, there is a beautiful silence that radiates off of it. Ceres was the first object to be considered an asteroid and is also considered to be a dwarf planet. It is the closest dwarf planet to the sun and the only one that does not have any moons. Ceres is so breathtakingly beautiful to me, and I love the energy that comes off of it. Very gentle, even tempered and I picture it having a chameleon iridescent pattern to it. 

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.
