“He is going.”

My artwork responds to an article in The New York Times today that discusses the decision of astronaut, Capt. Mark Kelly, to fly on a two-week shuttle mission to the International Space Station, while his wife, Representative Gabrielle Giffords, continues her “uncertain recovery.”

There has been much controversy over whether this decision is the right one. I can’t say whether it is right or wrong, but it has made me think about the feeling that the decision creates. My painting , with its muted colors, responds more to what the astronaut is leaving behind, rather than what he is going towards.

  1. I think that it’s great that you are responding to the continuing story that I also responded in my drawing “Astronaut Mark Kelly’s Dilemma”. 365 Days of Print makes a full circle!

    Thanks for your comment! It’s nice to see how the story has evolved, as well as how our individual art pieces intersect. Thanks again.
