This watercolor painting was inspired by a childhood memory living in northern Manitoba. We were tobogganing and the night was lit with a very bright aurora borealis. All of a sudden a very strong wind appeared and whipped the aurora into a swirl. Being a group of Trekkie fans we thought it looked like a portal to another world.
This painting is intended to convey the vibrating motion of the swirling aurora and how it lit up the night and our imagination.
