This oil painting of Polaris, the north star. As the earth rotates the stars appear to circle the north pole. Polaris is a bright star close to that point. This painting is 10 inches square, done in rich oil colors on gessoed hardboard panel. Accurate constellations including the Big and Little Dipper are depicted. I loved working on this star painting - it's part of an astral series.
This painting is professionally mounted in a silver Catalina float frame from King of Frame. The painting is 10 by 10 inches on gessoed hardboard. The framed dimensions are 14.5 by 14.5 by 1.5 inches. A hand drawn star map with labeled constellations is included on the back side.
