Acrylics on masonite. 16 X 20 in. This was my first published book cover and the last painting finished before I moved to the United States. It was commisioned for the first Polish edition of Isaac Asimov's novel - 'Prelude to Foundation'. I was trying to capture the overall mood of the novel - tell me, please, if I succeeded...

Prelude is a wondeful novel! You must feel so honoured to have provided the cover. It's an honour you well deserve I think.

I read the book I think you did capture the general bazzar idea of constantly moving from culture to culture

Never read the book... sorry 'bout that. Pic looks like a a convoy of gigantic metallic eye balls (either) coming or going from (I don't know) a metallic pretzel. Despite knowing nothing about the book series, I like this. Thanx.

Those planets look like eyeballs. Overall, this i very good piece. Very spacey *sorry, couldn't think of a better word* and futurisic.
