New Year New Painting!
I hope you had a safe and peaceful holiday season! I know for many 2020 was a rough year for many, with the loss of loved ones. If 2020 has taught me anything, it's to cherish those while they are here and not take for granted the memories you create with the ones around you.
Now last year, I had started a painting series about finding love again for physics. I introduced the world to "The Cradle," my interpretation of Newton's cradle, as well as "Spring's Constant," a comparison piece of my hair to that of a spring (If you have not read those blog pieces, I encourage you to take a look at them and a learn a little physics along the way.)
I was hoping to debut my last piece before 2020 ended, but I did not have much time to paint due to exhaustion and my schedule. None the less what better way to start the new year with the last piece to this series!
Astronomy has always fascinated me, especially astrophysics. In another life, I'd be an astronaut (I'd be one now if I weren't afraid of heights). There has always been something so appealing about the universe and its many galaxies. I dream about them especially when I look up at the sky. I know I am not the only one who wonders about what's beyond the unknown.
Although this is my last piece as part of my series, it will not be my last. To me, this piece signifies a new love for the discovery of the unknown, whether it be physics, astronomy, or just plain art. If you pay attention to details, you'll decipher what kind of 'crown' this queen is wearing.

This blog is part of my journey with physics, art, and everything in between. You can find a new post here every Sunday. Here are some upcoming topics and things that I will be talking about later this month.
January 10th: TBA
January 17th: TBA
I've set up a Patreon account. There you will be able to gain early access to my blog posts, be able to submit input on upcoming projects, and have access to exclusive editorial bonus videos. I am hoping to create content as well as build with creatives/scientists to change the narrative of what it means to see, hear, and experience science & art collectively. I hope you will join me on this exciting journey! Thank you for supporting my work it is appreciated!
