Nature’s Art Connection to the Planets

The more photos I started to take the more I found opportunities to use nature to illustrate planets and stars. I took a photo of this tree below and realized that there was a lot of potential there.

Once again I used Instagram and used filters to create two photos for the planets Jupiter and Saturn. Below is an original I took for Jupiter.

  
I cropped it and was able to add more red hues to illustrate Jupiter’s Great Red Spot!

  
There were many textural possibilities and I also rotated this photo to look like a black and white of Saturn’s rings!

  

 I find it interesting how closely connected nature is to parts of space, especially in an art form.

Harley Bike

MarsAbout a couple years back I went to my uncle’s house and took a photo of this beauty! Something about this bike really struck me. I used it to record a motorcycle drum kit part for my song Mars. The song is about a space traveler who goes back to his home planet on Mars and buys a Harley and hits the dusty Martian road, dodging sand tornadoes and dust storms. The only thing I managed to screw up was some small reflections of me taking the photo, but hey it adds a little mystery to it!
