Description The Kuiper Belt is a disc-shaped area in space consisting of of icy objects beyond the orbit of Neptune -- billions of kilometers from our sun. Pluto and Eris are the best known of these icy worlds. There may be hundreds more of these ice dwarfs out there. The Kuiper Belt and the even more distant Oort Cloud are believed to be the home of comets that orbit our sun. Eris was discovered in January 2005, and its identity was verified later that year. It has one known moon, Dysnomia. Other than some comets, Eris and Dysnomia are currently the most distant known natural objects in the Solar System.Digital Painting

Matthew Schwartz (AKA Spadecaller) is a grateful survivor who conveys his convictions and serenity through visual art, poetry, and video.
He was trained in traditional oil techniques as a child and later attended The School of Visual Arts in New York City (1970-71). During the 70's up until the late 80's he exhibited acrylic and oils in New York, and presently resides on the west coast of Florida.
Since the advent of image editing software, he has turned more to creative digital hand painted images and photos striving to fuse these into an art form worthy of the distinction traditional painters deserve.
Spadecaller showcase his digital paintings, poetry, and other mixed media images by creating videos; these are available for viewing at: http://www.youtube.com/user/Thespadecaller.
