This piece was started and completed after I returned home from a stay in the hospital, recovering from injuries sustained in a head-on automobile collision. Notice the transition in the sky.
I had completed the sky for the second panel of a three part work entitled ‘We The People’, about slavery. Upon returning home, I found the images and subject matter too painful to work with, so I shelved that project and created ‘Venus Island’ around the sky. I see this work as a fantasy fun piece. What do you think?  – Fred
Most images were cut out (with scalpels) and assembled manually.   [original for sale]
