Description Oil on canvas. 30' by 24'. October, 2015.This was meant to be an image of a spacy and intimidating alien world, a part of my novel Million Mile Road Trip. At first I was going to call the painting Bubbleman, and have the viewer imagine that the two eyes belonged to a single alien creature, but then I decided there were in fact two of them. And I decided to call them Vlad and Monika, and let them speak in Polish accents. Technically speaking, this was one of the more difficult paintings Ive done. It was tricky to give the bubbles the effect of being colored, translucent spheres.
