2 weeks ago while traveling in lovely San Francisco, a forgotten dream of painting a galaxy was awakened within me, as I watched street artists painting a bright moon floating above a silhouette of Golden Gate Bridge.

I often painted clouds in art school, and know that it can take days or weeks to give a painting light, air and volume. So you can imagine my excitement when it finally clicked that I can, perhaps, paint a galaxy filled with light, air and volume in 30 minutes!
Not to mention the chance to act like a bad a$$ street artist!

First we create a spiral galaxy using stencils made from cardboard. Then we will create floating planets with the help of crumbled newspaper, recycled cans and lids.
