The strokes used in this piece are very thick. So thick, in fact, that some of the detail is an eighth to a quarter of an inch off the canvas. The lower left corner has a side view portrait of an Australopithecus. He is composed of several shades of a rich brown. The center of the piece and a little higher up the canvas is a self-portrait of Monty Milne. It is a head portrait only and full frontal. He has long sandy blond hair, light pink lips, and a quizzical look on his face. To the upper right is a blue alien with large black eyes. In the very upper right of the canvas is a flash of yellow, maroon, and forest green light. The background of the piece contains an orange and red sun in the upper left, the Earth in the lower right, and a white Moon hovering over the Earth. The sky is black and dotted with white stars. << Back to Oil Painting Gallery
