In 2013, my father gave me some masonite boards. There were twelve on which I did a series of geometric shape paintings using the same color scheme. One of them, reminded me of a comet.
I found another piece of masonite, which had been laying around for decades and started what would be the first of several comet paintings. I would also consider these to be the beginning of the space-related paintings.
I have about 12 of these, a couple which are in progress. Some are on canvas, but most are on masonite boards. This first one is similar in shape to the original from which I was inspired to do the rest.
And these also eventually inspired the Flaming Eyeball Comet:
There are two of these, this and a larger one.
