This piece is my rendition of an inky, October sky when the heavens part for an instant to allow the Orionids to rush toward the prairie land. The meteor shower is named for the Orion constellation, regarded by many as the Hunter. The Ojibwa people believe Orion is the Winter Maker, heralding a new season. Acrylic with iron oxidized to rust to symbolize the stars urging for us to prepare. Please inquire at Strecker Nelson West Gallery in Manhattan, KS.
