Arrakis is the formal name of the desert planet, "Dune". The painting was inspired by Frank Herbert's novel, "Dune". It is an 11"x14" painting done in acrylics on a canvas panel. I was recently honored by having this painting chosen to be displayed as part of a juried members exhibition at the New Britain Museum of American Art in New Britain, CT. I also had the opportunity to speak to a group of fellow artists and museum patrons about my painting and my creative process. To find out more about the museum you can visit nbmaa,org.
