Oil Painting of Polaris

Posted on Updated on

10 by 10 inches, oil on hardboard

Polaris is the North Star. It’s the star around which the entire celestial sphere appears to turn… It will align most closely with the north celestial pole – the point in the sky directly above Earth’s north rotational axis – around the year 2100.
