I have always wanted learn the constellations, but the classroom was never available in NYC. But here, on the North Fork, on any clear night, it is open.

Draco, Ursa Minor, Ursa Major, Cepheus, Cygnus, Lacerta, Cassiopeia, Lynx, Camelopardalis, Perseus, Gemini. 

This 10×10 painted board will be on sale at the South Street Gallery’s 10×10 art sale which benefits the North Fork Environmental Council.

PREVIEW:  Friday, December 1, 2017  noon-9pm; SALE BEGINS: Saturday, December 2, 2017, 6pm.

I am using a Kindergarten art technique: toothbrush splatter art. My most formative years.

    And so nice to be able to look up at the stars.

    I found H.A. Rey’s, “The Stars” a good way to learn to identify the constellations. But if you’ve learned Draco, Ursa Minor, Ursa Major, Cepheus, Cygnus, Lacerta, Cassiopeia, Lynx, Camelopardalis, Perseus and Gemini, you’re way ahead of me! My difficulty in learning the constellations is that I only try learning them at sea, when tired, and soon after trying to learn one, I fall asleep 🙂

    What a beautiful Picture! and wonderfull names and myths of the planets and stars. I love the idea that from now on, we can make dates out in Space, decide which planet to meet on NeXT time. I suggest Jupiter on december 10th 😀

    Where is the Like-button? And I will press it a second time, when phantasy has told me the story of that lonely steamer.

    I saw this on Instagram, and I’m glad I can see it better here. It’s really nice, everything about it – including your write-up, and the notion of the classroom being open out on the North Fork, on any clear night.

    I have a deck of constellation flashcards on my desk at work, I should take those home. I know some constellations but would enjoy knowing more.
