First to answer gxhpainter, where have you been. Well out of concern for my health he contributes to my hedonistic youth, my oldest son (I have 5) signed me up to a fitness club and personal trainer. If you ever watched Biggest Loser, this is worse. So, in short, I have been too pooped to paint, tuckered out. I spend a lot of time in the Gallery peering at your art.

The painting, "Were Here But For a Molten Core", springs from an episode of Nova - Earth's Invisible Shield I watched some time ago. It is filled with amazing information about the role a molten core plays to produce a magnetic field which protects us from radiation/solar winds, et.al., generated by the sun. In the absence of a molten core our atmosphere and life would be stripped from the planet. The program begins with the gloomy (Alexander) news that the strength of the magnetic field protecting is declining significantly. Don't worry. Be happy.

Here is the link to the program if you are interested.


The painting depicts the protected Earth, and in the absence of a molten core, Mercury, and Venus, the solar winds stripping away their atmospheres. Did not have enough room for Mars, it is the same story.

So if I were looking for planets with life I would seek out planets with molten cores, of similar size and age (affects core heat) on some quiet, cozy, cul-de-sac on the distal end of a spiral galaxy, where this tranquil neighborhood allows time for life to spawn voraciously.

I need to wrap this up and get this post to the forum. Don't forget to set your clocks. The end of the world as we know it begins today. I want to make sure you get this before then.
