Continued the practice of oil on lama paper and canvas, this artwork is all about Asteroid. They are small Solar System bodies, any astronomical object orbiting the Sun that are not comets, historically referred to objects inside the orbit of Jupiter; the larger ones are called planetoids. Hence the artist takes a similar approach in creating this painting. Predominately terra cotta colored composition depicts a flatten view of the textured surface of asteroids, albeit dominated by a larger one.
