I'm thrilled to be posting this image for more than the usual reasons. This digital oil painting is slated to be used for the cover art of `jade-pandora's next book of poetry, also titled "Shooting Star", coming out very soon!
:eager:

I've also had the pleasure of helping her put the project together, assembling the galley, and designing the rest of the cover as well.

There will be a forward by Shane, *thetaoofchaos, who's advice and assistance have been invaluable, and who really helped get the whole process for the upcoming book out of the "wishing" stages and into production!

Keep your eyes on our journals - there will be much fanfare and dancing about when the book is released! :dance:

Painting created in Corel Painter IX.5 using a Wacom Babmoo tablet
  Star positions in the painting are represented as seen gazing west from Los Angeles Ca, at 10:00 pm on August 24th 2010.

Thank you, Phil. I'm glad you appreciate the simplicity of the piece - it seemed to be a good approach to take for Jade's book cover.

Thank you also for the :+fav:! :XD:

A lovely combination of deep blues and the orange of the falling star.

I love the art, and whoa...all the rest too. I am very happy for you. That is awesome. Hope it is a huge success with lots of hoopla.

But anyway, the art is wonderful. It is simple and elegant.
