of the night sky

I have selected these works of art under the connecting factor and theme of the night sky. The theme of the sky often leads way to greater questions of the universe like "why are we here, and what is our purpose?".  The immensity of the sky and the stillness of night often make people feel contemplative, and full of wonder.  The sheer vastness of the unknown can be an overwhelming feeling, while at the same time the sight of the night sky can bring peace and solace to many.   All of the works I have selected are brought together by a common color scheme, focused primarily on black and white, with an emphasis on blue, and a hint of blush.  I personally feel these works all sit well together, not varying much in medium, but offering enough variety in subject and design to keep a viewer interested. 

I have created a collection of images including 9 artists and 12 pieces of artwork.
