Saturn, Original oil painting
Original oil painting by Sarah Soward. Oil on canvas. 36x36 inches, unframed. The canvas is stretched on 1.5 inch stretcher bars and is gallery wrapped.
Saturn is part of the Stellae Errantes (Wandering Stars) series. The painting is heavily influenced by NASA's photos of Saturn, especially the hexagonal storm at its north pole. The planet's rings are alluded to with the position of the elephant's trunk and the smaller elephants walking around in a ring. The smaller elephants represent Saturn's children. He's famous for eating his offspring. These are the ones who survived. Even though a subject can be dark, it doesn't mean that it must be.
