From: Callisto Biosphere A by LeahJay From: Callisto Biosphere A by LeahJay
16 x 20, pastel over watercolor.

Model: my daughter, plus two owls from the San Francisco zoo

There have been many studies about artificial biospheres, one potential "dream" application is to create offworld colonies. Of the moons of Jupiter, Callisto is a normal planetary size and volcanically stable. Basically it's just a rock....hence I figured it might be a conservative choice for a far-future colony site. The task of every colony citizen would be as stewards and preservers of the remaining homeworld species.

Hi Anjouanna, just wanted to say, thanks for the compliment! Daughter is learning how to communicate online, and can come off wrong when typing comments. (hard for her to know what to say and when to stop...) But she's not mad at all! She's just thirteen. She and I are just fine and laugh about this painting often together :D I just love that I have your support on DA, I hope you know that! :glomp:

Well, that's what I look like, if you want to know.
Yes, I am her daughter. Yes, I did hold an owl.
However, I held the right owl at a fair, but the right owl is from the SF Zoo.
*sigh* You really should change that, mom. :stare:

i didn't want to know what you looked like, i was just appreciating your mum's artwork. you are old enough to know that a comment on you mum's art like this will hurt her. not nice at all.

I wasn't making fun of her artwork, I was just commenting on the tiny blip in her description. We say stuff like this to each other all the time.
So EXCUUUUSE me! :stare:
