This painting was produced for the
Minneapolis Science Fiction Convention, held each 4th of July weekend,
known as "CONvergence".
2003's theme was "TIME
FLIES" and the convention wizards actually built a replica of Star
(Harlan Ellison's) 'Guardian' portal, complete with multiple changing lights
& original sound bites,.....
[See it in the upcoming movie: "Trekkies 2"].
This convention has, every year, had a mascot robot named "CONNIE",
designed by comic artist
Christopher Jones, and I just had to combine both elements in this
20" x 15" piece.
This is my first oil painting and
I'm still sorting out the pros & cons of the medium.
