Out Of This World

Out Of This World
20" x 16"

This spaceship belongs to a dear friend of mine. She has memories of her grandmother keeping it in her closet on a top shelf. When she would get to see it, it would be for short moments, then it was put back up on the shelf. When I held it, it was in amazing condition, no scratches or dings. I could only imagine it
whirling about lights flashing. It is the Masudaya X-5 spaceship from the 1960's.



I did a little search and came across a YouTube video of the X-5
in action. So much fun!

  1. Great painting Theresa. I love the idea of the cut-out stars from corrugated cardboard....very whimsical (brings back memories of creating crafts as kids out of the most ordinary objects) and incorporating it in your composition. Best of luck on your show at EFG, the latest issue of American Art Collector should arrive in the mail any day now.

  2. PS- I love the layout of your blog, one of the very best!
